Hayden Trenholm has some pretty entertaining posts on his 10 Minutes of Words blog. Like this one today.
I particularly liked this comment:
“No – I get it – you think of work as the stuff you get paid for. Which pretty much eliminates writing and publishing. Oh, money flows through my hands alright but you wouldn’t want to calculate the hourly rate.”
Unfortunately a little too long to tweet, so I put it up here.
Also, this pretty much describes 90% of my consulting work:
“So there is the day job where I produce endless amounts of advice that no-one pays attention to…It would be a full rich life if it weren’t so empty and soul-destroying.”
It’s a crazy world we live in where people pay lots of money for advice they don’t want to hear and yet balk at paying $5 for a novel they’d really enjoy. But such is life.
