I guess I am a bit of a work-a-holic, but I do understand there is something to be said for the importance of the quality of life. However, it is tough to set some things aside for me in my busy life and focus on what is really important sometimes. This year, I have decided to force myself not to work on New Years Eve.
As you know in today's economy, it is very difficult to turn down decent money. It is also difficult for many, to just set everything down and step aside from working from time to time. Being a DJ that gets booked a lot, thus far I have turned away a New Years Wedding, a bar gig and a Lebanese Restaurant in Troy, NY. I am working on it and think that I will be able to stifle the work-a-holic temptation inside me this year.
In the New Year's spirit, I decided to take it off to spend time with friends and family. Though this may not sound like a big deal to some, to others that have the bug, this is very difficult. Work, to me, can easily be a considered an addiction.
This year I am hoping to sit back and have a normal holiday for a change.
Okay - off to the next job. Will write later, when I can find a second ...
