Let Me Ask You a Question – 12/13/17


Let me ask you a question:

If you had to choose, would you rather have an easy job working for someone else or work for yourself but work incredibly hard?

  1. I have been doing both, even if I prefer working for myself. I followed this with working hard, which brought me down with stress, clinical depression and now pension. So I will not advice anyone to work as hard, even if you work for yourself. It is not worth it…..

  2. Working for others regardless of the effort or lack of effort you put in..is ultimately you pushing someone else up the ladder.

    Working for yourself however, is you going up your own damn ladder, pushing your own self, with the comforting intention of making your own dream come true..and not someone else’s.

  3. I’ve done both. Can’t I have an easy job working for myself? No? Darn! How about easy for someone else, but endlessly fascinating and exciting? Somehow that seems incredibly rare too. If doing something I love, I’m not sure how much it matters which.


  4. I have done both. Working for yourself is only preferable if the work is rewarding and enjoyable. If it is drudgery then I’d rather have the easy job working for someone else. There are other considerations: level of responsibility or accountability – you never really get to ‘stop’ working when you are working for yourself. Again though, it goes back to the level of reward. If your work is your passion then it doesn’t feel like work at all!

  5. You know my answer here. I’m building my business at the moment and I love it. I know it will be much harder in a sense than simply working for someone else, on a daily schedule and for a monthly paycheck of a certain amount. But at the same time it’s also much easier. Because it’s on my terms, I decide how I drive this and in the end I feed into my dreams and not someone else’s.
