OK, it was only a couple of days ago that I presented my revised market option. But I remembered something about myself and realized that I have to add something to my market option list.
I'm a kind of person who cannot just do a "good-enough" job - especially when someone is paying me. And I since I want to be learning something new all the time, I tend to seek challenges by proposing something new or volunteering to fix something. So if I start an official paid job, I won't be able to help myself but to give 120% even if the job doesn't give all the fulfillment that I need. Well, it would be just fine if I can find a job that matches my life mission to give me all the fulfillment. But I'm starting to think that I may not be able to find a job that matches exactly what I want to do. I may end up wanting to do additional things on the side to really fulfill my life mission. But knowing myself, I won't have time to do anything on the side once I'm committed to do a full-time job elsewhere.
I started to think about this when I saw a book called: Should I Do What I Love? (or do what I do - so I can do what I love on the side). And I thought, "Yeah, like I'm capable doing what I want on the side". The book itself was more for younger audience, so I skipped through most of the pages. But then I came across an interview with Todd Woloson, the CEO of IZZE Beverage Company, and read the following paragraph:
...the biggest lesson that I've learned personally is that you have to have unwavering optimism, an absolute belief beyond reason that this is worth pursuing. What else are you going to do? Try to be safe? It never occurred to me not to do it...
Yeah, right? What am I going to do? Pretend that I never really wanted to promote eco lifestyle?
The only problem is that I'm not 100% sure how I'd earn my living by doing this. And anyway, it'll take time to build it. So I thought about how I could support myself without committing to become a full-time employee - doing freelance works.
So that's what I'm adding to my market option list - doing freelance work in the area that I'm already skilled.
Like I said, the possibilities are endless...
