I am pretty much a constant bundle of stress. And while I realize your article is more of an advertorial than anything, I still have to disagree.
Sure, the job satisfaction is pretty high, when you’ve got a client that works with you, and not against you. When everyone pays their bills on time. When great projects just land in your lap. When your computer doesn’t break down right before a deadline. When nobody asks you to take a perfectly lovely design, and add something totally horrendous to it. When you aren’t being micromanaged, told your work is no good, or harassed by constant telephone calls asking why insert project name here isn’t finished yet. In short, when pigs fly over frozen hellfire.
I mean, don’t get me wrong. I love my job, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything, and for every lousy client I have three fantastic clients. But stress-free? Hah!
