Changing Work Patterns
I find myself in the ranks of the unemployed or is that really the under-employed? Well as unemployed as you can be when you run a small consulting business and only installed 10 routers this week.
Seriously, I just finished a 12 month contract with the defence department and need something to get my teeth into. I have decided to concentrate on short term contracts. I find myself enjoying the prospect of doing varied jobs, being flexible and saying no to work I don't like.
Having spent most of the 80's in full time employment I started contracting in the 90's. In 2000 I took a full time position. A year ago I decided to jump back into contracting. Having done this I find I really don't want to go back to the 9-5 lifestyle.
I am thinking I should do a little more self promotion. I have seen it work for so many others over the last few years. As an Australian, I suffer from that inate inability to blow my own horn. We become embarrassed when extolling our virtues. I need to overcome this, in our modern globalised economy if your not out there, your nowhere.
Now I need to go and think about what to do next.
