How my trauma response has been screwing with my freelance business

  • I decide that those coworking sessions are all I need to build my business. I do not need to be ON 24/7 and losing sleep so the hustle pays off.
  • I am using Friday mornings for skills development. I sort of do this already, but I’d feel guilt because I felt that I wasn’t doing enough of the “revenue generating” ideas to say that I “earned” my learning time. This is why I am using constraints to my benefit and deciding that those 6 hours per week are enough. It’s my way to keep my workaholic tendencies in check, which is another reason why I start and stop. I work too hard and then I need to take long breaks. This madness ends today!
