Gun For Hire

The term free-lance has come down to us from medieval times when knights independent of any lord roamed the countryside in search of adventure. Today, a free-lance has come to mean a person who acts according to (his) principles and is not influenced by any group.

Free-lancers want the relative freedom and control of managing their own business without the responsibility of running a company. The free-lance has an even greater freedom in how they structure and use their time than the small business owner. Most businesses have to keep regular hours but free-lancers might start their day at 2.00pm and work late into the night, or they may work intensively on a project for 6 months and then take 6 months off.

As a free-lance you can take advantage of your natural rhythms and work at those times you feel most creative and have the most energy. You are running your schedule, your schedule is not running you.

As with time, so with space ... you are free to create.

Taken from Zen and the Art of Making a Living by Laurence G. Boldt
