The Beginner. (the grass is always greener on the other side)
I have always been trying to establish my own business and run it from home, heck, it was all I was thinking about when I was in IKEA working on any project, wishing I had my way to actually be at home and giving my full undivided attention to the "side business" I was doing.
Now, I am doing exactly that, running my business from home, except; I am not giving it my full undivided attention.
My attention has actually been divided on other things like: cooking, running my errands, chores, socializing more, thinking about how I should go out and exercise, or being out and working somewhere more appropriate (like a coffee shop).. the list goes on and on.
Becoming a freelancer or working on your own is very over-whelming at times, you have got the "flexible time" you were wishing for, but in reality you have established some sort of a calendar to keep up with all the projects you want and need to do, and working from home makes it kind of impossible to not get a little distracted from that calendar (calendar: your new, improved boss)
Saying that, this over-whelmed stage is probably because I am still a beginner in this, even when I hate to admit it to myself because I have been doing this thing that I call my business for a while. But managing your own time and getting (everything) done on your own, especially for the first time, it will take sometime to grasp and find your niche in doing whatever it is your doing, right.
I remember feeling like this when I first started working in IKEA, where everyone around me knew the product names, style expressions and what stock integrity actually means, it was so stressful to the point that it made me cry on several occasion being the "newbie" I was.
Little did I know, I would actually end up being very good at remembering all the product names, and understanding each and every style expression, being able to mix styles, and all about stock integrity.
All I am saying is that if you are reading this, and you are starting a freelance business, a new job, or even a new lesson in school, give yourself a little bit of time, and keep going, because you will get there one day, where you are no longer a beginner, you are a master at what you are doing.
"a master is a beginner who kept beginning"
All love to you,
