Work To Do

work | toddregoulinsky.com

How a person reacts to stress is an interesting thing. Some freeze, some go into a flurry. Some become more efficient because is streamlines their thinking and supplies them with an abundance of adrenaline. Some get mired in a swamp of depression, frustration, and anxiety. If I’m being honest here, I’ve been all of those …

Summer Experiment

One of the reasons why I like working for myself is the option to work as little as possible. Okay, maybe that sounds a little strange. Maybe if I said that I like to work as efficiently as possible, it’d sound better. It wouldn’t be as true or clear, but if that makes you feel …

The funny thing about being self-employed is that days lose a bit of their meaning. Sure, Friday is nice because there’s some respite in the weekend, but it’s not like you get to escape your boss or anything – you share the same mirror. For me, Monday is a busy day. There’s all the messages …
