If You Can’t Sleep You Won’t Dream
It’s great to have a dream job but it’s even more important to have a roof over your head and food on the table. Sometimes one of the steps towards your dream job is getting the survival job so you can be at peace and be open to working on your dream job.
There’s nothing wrong with that, it may just be a necessary step on the path.
My client loves to write. He is a very funny screenwriter. When I met him he was ready to dump his 9-5 job because it was getting in the way of his “real career” writing. When he talked through his fears and concerns we found that he actually had time to work on his dream and that his job was actually a gift. It enabled him to pay his bills without working every hour of the day. People were nice, the commute was fine and it was a cool office. He realized that he was scared about getting stuck in the job and not ever making his dream come true. We put a plan together to enable him to write and pay the bills. He stopped beating himself up for what should be and accepted what was. A year later he has a screenplay finished and he is pitching it.
Coaching was for 15 minutes once a week for three months = $375.
