So Bullish asked me about my ideal workspace. Only I have at least three.
- Cool patients
- Fun colleagues
- Learning-oriented environment
- Money. No one wants to work for free. Unfortunately, this is at odds with a learning-oriented environment.
- Close to home, although I did enjoy working with the Inuit.
- Shifts that aren’t too long. Some doctors relish 12-24 h shifts. I am not one of them.
- Innovative topics and styles. I’m the kind of person who generally won’t write the same story twice.
- Money. Sadly for me, the way you cash in is generally build up an audience is by branding yourself and delivering a 100-book series. So I’m trying to consolidate a bit.
- I’d really love to travel and incorporate different cultures into my writing.
- I like the challenge of workshops and am looking forward to studying novels & business with Dave Farland in March and Kris Rusch in April this year. For the first time, I’m bringing my son to a workshop (March). Should be interesting.
- My kids are my life.
- However, today I learned that Anastasia has mucoid serous otitis media with hearing loss, so I feel like that shoemaker whose kids have no shoes. This explains why I’m now sitting with her, watching Caillou (guilt).
- My ideal work space for them would be more space: more time, more patience, more love.
What’s your ideal work space? If you need any ideas, my Bullish colleagues have some suggestions. Cheers!
