What difference does it make how much you have? What you do not have amounts to much more.

Status: there’s something about working on a Saturday which doesn’t sit well with me. And if this feels like work is it something I really want to continue doing?

I’ve hit a roadblock in the story and I’m not sure what happens next. Fully admit that I’m letting it intimidate me and I’m procrastinating with other things so I don’t have to face it. This is something I’m not great at: when I don’t know how to start The Next Thing, I become listless. Not sure exactly how to get around that one. Mark Manson described how he just started doing something, anything, and the momentum and encouragement from that start brought things into focus and allowed him to power through it.

Perhaps that’s the best way to do it.

I’m sitting on my response to the initial offer provided by the insurance company yesterday. I’ve already told them that I’m “travelling” until the 3rd and therefore I may be a little slow to respond until then. I think this speaks volumes about my interest in the role.

The practical choice is to take the job and engage with it as best I can. It’s a good job, with good compensation and growth potential. I’m covering old ground with this role, but that might not be a bad thing – I can ease myself into it with the familiarity of the landscape. It’ll also give me some breathing room by providing another source of income and giving me additional time to work on the things I really want to do.

I’ll mull it over a bit more, but I think that’s the smart play…..
