I am facing a number of challenges in my current attempt to establish myself as an independent professional. It is the same set of difficulties I faced in my former attempt of the year 2000: I acquired lots of good work orders, but I was unable to organize myself and deliver on time. In 2000 I got so frustrated that after a few months I gave up to my wife's urging and accepted a civil service job (which I later discovered, was quite an important position). This is my last opportunity in life. What I need is a misgueret - a framework. Respected business partners and ineludible responsabilities (like debts) that will not allow me the luxury of navigating all day and waste time as I do. I must burn my boats like Hernan Cortes to everybody to see that I am fully committed and have not a chance to retreat. I have to think how to structure my life in that way.
When in a similar confortable situation as I am now, in 1967-8, my dear uncle Ivor ז"ל put down before me an offer of a trip to America if I complete the degree in the year 1969. The Szabo gave me everything I asked for, a salary which I went to receive each month at the third floor of their Tucuman Str. fab, an empty apartment - first near the Corrientes & Medrano streets (with cases of expensive whisky) and then in Cabildo Str.- and so on. I gave up everything and concentrated on giving exam after exam, ten in 1969, and there I went to Montreal. How can I structure myself into a similar committed situation?
(1) Taking up debt. Debt is a powerful incentive.
(2) Weekly meetings with collegues. Like Taly, etc.
(3) Long term commitments: Contracts that expose me to problems if unattended.
