Deciding on which task fits us
« on: October 12, 2014, 10:43:41 AM »
The job that you enjoy the most is oftentimes the one that pays more.

Are you happy with your online experiences? Is it as crappy as your offline 9-5 was?
Then maybe we are doing something wrong...

In this current crazy economy, its enough to handle how best to navigate bills and expenses on a daily/monthly basis. Dealing with crappy jobs just makes it worst. Don't you think? I certainly do  ;D.

There are just some things that shouldn't be part of our "working" hours. The biggest thing being the job itself. Why should we be unhappy and annoyed at the function we do for most of our day? No, that is torture. Our jobs/tasks should be fun 8). But how do we ensure that this happens?

I think that there are ways to achieve this. One of which  is to CHOOSE the tasks/jobs that we will enjoy doing. Is it writing that you enjoy? Find writing jobs...if its cooking, maybe write about that (even if you don't like writing....writing about cooking, which you love, will make the task become fun). Anything that you enjoy as an hobby, or has a skill in, may become a job function. And it doesn't have to be for online avenues only.

I remember purchasing a baked item from a lady and enjoyed it so much...I asked her where she got the idea and recipe. She shared with me that she loved baking and that, thats what inspired her to make a business out of her interest/hobby.
After a while, even the parts of it that she may not enjoy (like going to the market to get her supplies) became enjoyable...she almost didn't have hands to make enough...they were pre-ordered!!

I believe we can apply this approach to our online experiences and have success!!

I wish that was true for me, but I don't think very many people want articles on the subjects that interest me the most right now.  I am looking at some of the article writing sites, maybe going to give one a shot pretty soon, but it's just overwhelming me at the moment.

Often the tasks and jobs that fit me dont get offered and I have had to find other ways to make my money. I am still not making money enough to say that it can pay the bills but hopefully it will build up and I will have enough to do so. Kids get expensive and the money would be great.
I love writing but I often get work that only pays a a max of $3 dollars for an entire article....but I see it as a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

Generally, I am contented on what have been going on in my online work experiences. I can say that it better than my 8 hours office jobs before because no need to wake up early to commute and get to the office. Although working online dies not have security of regular work and benefits, it will be depends on you if you prefer having those or having freedom to work in your own pace and time.

I also think that if you are really passionate about something you can make it profitable. Just think about it, it is already something that you most likely do on a daily basis and probably talk about often. You won't have to try to hard to sell it. You already have a target market. Try researching online for people that have blogs on whatever the subject is or reading newspaper classifieds if there is no market online for your particular hobby.

Good suggestion, thank you for commenting :). I agree completely...it is good when we can find areas that we fit into well that we can use as our platform for working online. Especially for those who enjoy writing...writing on here should be something that we look forward to, right?

Very true!! Also there are creative ways of marketing our specific skills...we have to be different, especially in this time where a number of persons are doing similar and prospective employers are looking for something extraordinary, not the same old "cliched" personalities...lets think smart and work smart, we will be amazed by the results 8) 8)

I would say that I am quite happy and satisfied with my career now as a freelance writer. The pay is not really that high, but it is really kind of a fulfilling job. However, I am still not closing my doors for better opportunities out there. Just keeping myself optimistic. :)

I am contented with what I do online, but I don't consider it as a career or really a job as I have the freedom of working whenever I want or the situation allows. My online "jobs" don't pay enough but it does help me making ends meet, or pay a couple of bills.

I don't mind the long hard work as long as I get paid for my time and effort!

Knowing your strengths and limitations is key in anything you do as well as enjoying it. I don't like surveys in general so I don't do them and I just can't get into those microtask sites that other people seem to like and do. It's not that I can't do them, but I find them not suited to me as afterwards I feel as if I haven't made the most of my time.

I guess it all depends on what goals you set and if you are being realistic. If you think this work will even replace a part-time job in terms of pay, you are probably deluding yourself. If you expect to make $5-$10 a day with 2-5 hours work, that's probably realistic. I realize it is possible to make more, but for the most part, most people probably will not.

Realistic is the key of course! It's not just about being comfortable with something, because we can be completely "comfortable" with something that is in no way fulfilling :P

Anyway, let's be smart about it all :)

I have to keep a realistic daily goal when it comes to online earning and work towards get more than this. If fulfilled, great! However knowing that I have reached my minimum money goal for the day makes me feel happy by itself, and this contributes to check carefully other online opportunities to increase my earnings.

There is nothing worst that taking any job coming across for the sole fact of feeling in need to make money, but not making a minimum goal set.
