OK, so you make your living by selling your thoughts: your opinion, your advice, your creative ideas, your experience, whatever it may be.
The problem with that kind of industry is that it tends to be driven by trading money for hours, which means that most professional "thinkers" end up in a trap that says: "I have to work as many hours as possible, because when I'm not working I'm not earning". That's not a comfortable place to be. Trust me, I've been there!
So how do we get out of that trap?
