Weaving a Braid

A Warrior without a King

Factors to consider as you undertake this major planning effort to set up for freelancing.

  • What do you want to do? (Not your job, but your work, now, tomorrow, and in the future)
  • Who do you want to change, and how do you want to change them?
  • How much risk? (from 1 [a little] to 10 [bet everything]), how much are you willing to put at stake to make the change you seek?
  • How much work are you willing to do to get there? Be specific about the tradeoffs.
  • Does this project matter enough for the risk and the effort you’re putting into it?
  • Is it possible — has anyone with your resources ever pulled off anything like this?
