I was given an exercise to complete recently – what, for me, was not up for discussion, not up for compromise? The result – my non-negotiables. Its great having them clearly defined and should make it easier to traverse the freelance world of commissioning and contracts.
For me, it’s all about balance.
The work that I do is about keeping a balance between responsibility and ambition; between my home, my work and the planet; between giving time and attention to family, friends, colleagues, stakeholders and commissioners and for me personally, its about keeping a balance between mind, body and spirit.
What I do must be in balance, and be purposeful, satisfying, and enjoyable.
There – not much to ask, is it?!
