For some variety is the spice of work, for others regular, planned and predictable patterns are preferred. This shows one of the differences that exist between people.
There is an inherent problem in one of these approaches and it involves eggs and baskets.
Repetitive work loads (eggs) are great for making a predictable income each day, week, month or year. They can be streamlined, have their processes improved to increase efficiency, and provide a great platform for increasing profits. They also rely on the market (basket) you operate in being stable and unchanging.
Finding different sources of business can be difficult, uncomfortable and initially unprofitable, some might say discouragingly so. Beware the voice of reason (read “fear”) that advises towards the status quo.
If anything has been proven over the last couple of years it is that stability is a myth, change is an essential element in the direction taken by markets, and fluctuations abound.
The gauntlet that you must pick up is to assess your own business and ensure that whilst you have a sufficient amount of “regular”, “stable” work, you also have new sources of revenue to accommodate the, dare I say inevitable, time when circumstances change and the stability disappears once again (omelette).
