Thoughts on self-employment

One thing just struck me this week. After six months of self employment I made a realization.

For my whole work life, my normal day was spent watching the clock. This isn’t to say that I didn’t have a good work ethic and my employers weren’t happy with my work, but every day was a timed event.

These days I find that work is much different. I still work a fairly normal 8-5 work day, of course with much more flexibility, but I gauge my day much more on the tasks that are in my inbox. I often find myself working on things late into the night, or on the weekends. The days seem to flow together much differently than they used to.
