I was unpleasantly surprised when I came out from my meditation class... I had to brush snow off my car! I
I miss some fellow bloggers... Maybe it's because I need to change circle
I wish I could say that my work brings me joy… nah, it brings me a pay cheque for one and at times frustrations. Let me explain. You see, I take pride in doing my work well, and the part I hate at being self-employed is having to negotiate my rate. I’m realising a lot of small businesses (most of my clients) don’t want to pay. They want the cheapest they can get. I do understand that, BUT, at the same time, I also know that you get what you pay for. My blood pressure went up when I saw that a person hired to “help” me, made a deposit of a Canadian cheque in a US bank account, not once, but twice. Imagine how good I felt when her boss sent me an email asking me to increase her salary… and he had the … “equipment”… to negotiate my rate? I think not buddy!
Why are we, as a society, so prompt to forgive incompetence? It’s not like there’s not people out there looking for jobs. I really don’t get this. If the person is not capable to do simple tasks, like depositing CDN cheques in a CDN back account, why do we give her that task, why do we even keep her? I wonder at times… is it me or are we simply doomed?? I think we’re f*ck no matter what. What do you think?
