Thank you for your response.

I do feel like you are partially right on the part where you say that I'm focused on the wrong parts. I specifically cut out all clients, except this one. She pays well and normally doesn't request to many changes.

The other night I did free work on the layout, because it was fun. Then today when she asked for the changes on the form, I was annoyed. You nailed it with the fact that it is because it's not a fun thing I want to do, but a work item.

I'm not practicing most of your items, but I think I need to start doing so. These specifically.

  • lots of breaks (during the week, outdoor sports, swimming, walking ...)
  • holidays that does not involve any technology
  • master the schedule, not vice-versa. I should lay the terms when I do what and where (outside of work ofc)

I appreciate you taking the time to respond.
