Susannah Breslin Reveals the Secrets in ’30 Days Of Freelancing’ Series
Forbes' career blogger slows down to show how it's done.
November 2, 2012 - 11:00 am
This month, I’ll be chronicling my life as a freelancer.
This is Day 1.
TIP #1: Timing is everything.
I spend several days and one therapy session trying to figure out what to do with my Forbes blog this month.
Last month, I didn’t post much at all. The month before that, I wrote about obscenity. Originally, this blog was about what happened after I got downsized.
My therapist tries to convince me that whatever I do will be good.
I wait until I have 30 minutes left in the day, EST, and then I start.
TIP #2: Work slower.
Have you heard of the slow food movement? It’s part of the slow movement. Apparently, there’s something called the slow work movement. Pete Bacevice is its philosopher.
I decide I’m a recovering workaholic. The slow work movement will be my Alcoholics Anonymous. I will take 30 days to become a slower worker.
In theory, if you work less, you are happier. I am not sure how to get there. But I will try.
