    For me, when I started freelancing full-time, it was (somewhat) the case of following others, more than anything else.What struck me most was the ease with which freelancers work, especially, if one could get everything done with the Internet and a computer. But if that’s the only reason you want to become a freelancer then you’re in for a bad time.

    在我開始成為全職自由職業者的是時候,多多少少是在跟隨別人的足跡,別無其他。自由職業最讓我動心之處在于它的簡單易行,尤其是當我可以通過一臺電腦和互聯網完成任務的時候。但如果這是你目前希望開始自由職業的唯一理由,那么你錯了。

    Earlier we had an article about 9 things you should know about going into full-time freelancing, and if you have read it you would know that despite what freelancing has to offer, it’s not a career path for everyone. It’s not that we are discouraging you from taking up freelancing (full-time or partime), in fact the point of this article is to give you reasons why you should give it a go.     之前我們曾有過一篇文章《進入全職自由職業的9點須知》,如果你讀過這篇文章,會對自由職業將會面對什么有所了解,但自由職業不是一條適合所有人的路徑。這不是在打消你成為自由職業者(兼職或全職)的念頭,本文的主旨在于給出若干開始的理由。     The first reason why you should try freelancing is…     自由職業的第一個理由: 1. To Satisfy Your Creative Impulse     Many individuals are just born creative and talented. They usually have a great desire to exhibit skills in some form, yet in a normal desk job, it’s rare that they could ever find a platform to showcase their talent.     For instance, a designer working in a software firm may come across a great design idea, but there isn’t really a chance to try the idea out since he has to work within the confines of his jobscope or the project requirements. In most cases, even if he were to suggest that the team tries his new idea, more often than not, it’s just "not the right time to try something so new" – give me a show of hands if you have heard this. Don’t Get Mad, Get To Work!     In this case, you can put your idea to good use in freelance: produce a good sample and put it in your portfolio, or keep the idea in your "Idea Book" for a chance to try it out in the future, or just go all out and make it, then feature it in design websites or enter it into competitions. 1、滿足你的創意沖動  很多人生來富于創意與天賦。他們很渴望以某種方式展示自己的才干,然而面對一份朝九晚五的工作,卻鮮有展示天分的舞臺。 例如,一名在軟件公司工作的設計師可能會有很好的設計創意,但他卻不一定有機會付諸實踐。因為他被工作范圍或項目需求所限制。大多數情況,即使設計師說服團隊圖嘗試新的創意,得到的答案也常常是“這過于新穎了,現在還不該嘗試”,你一定聽過這話吧? 別抓狂,繼續下去! 遇到這種情況,你可以讓自己的點子在自由職業中得到應用:做一個好的范例,并放到你的作品集中,或者把點子記在“創意手冊”中,也可直接全力以赴付諸實踐,之后把它推薦到設計網站上或者參加比賽。 2. To Obtain Added Income     There is no dearth of individuals who spend more than half their life grumbling about low pay in their jobs. No matter what salary you draw every month, it usually runs out way too early. If your job isn’t taking too many hours out of your day, you can use your spare time to work on freelance projects. Side Income     It’s a win-win situation: you get to keep your job and your benefits, and you can find potential clients for freelance work from your network of acquaintances.     There are many companies that prefer to engage freelancers rather than employ a full time in-house artist, designer, developer or writers. You can take advantage of that and earn yourself some extra pocket money in the process. 2、獲得附加收入      半輩子都在抱怨收入,大有人在。無論月薪高低,難免月光。如果你的工作不會占用你的太多時間,不如用業余時間執行自由職業的項目。     相對于雇傭全職的藝術家,設計師,開發人員和寫手,很多公司更偏向于和自由職業者打交道。你可以利用這種現象獲得額外收益。 3. To Open Up New Career Options     Freelancing prepares you for a professional career ahead. It also harnesses your skills, and for those who catch on fast and who are willing to learn new things, the sky is the limit.     In the beginning, however, you may find that things may advance slower than expected. It’s not easy to convince someone to try something new, let alone pay for a freelancer who has yet to make a name of himself (or herself). But as you build your clientele list and become an expert in your field, things will indefinitely become way easier.     This opens up the opportunity to really do something you love (if you aren’t already doing it) and in this career choice, you can have a part in making the rules. 3、面對新的職業選擇      自由職業可以為你將來的專業道路提供幫助。這將強化你的技能,對那些理解能力強,希望學習新東西的人,將會有很大的空間。     在最開始,你會發現事情的進展會比預期緩慢。說服別人嘗試新東西并不容易,更何況是讓客戶接受并無名氣的自由工作者。但當你逐漸建立自己的客戶名單并成為一個領域專家,事情就會隨之變得容易。     自由職業的過程,將為你帶來做愛做的事的機會(如果你還沒有在做的話)。選擇這種生涯,會給你更多機會去制定規則。 4. To Work From Home     This is what makes freelancing an attractive option to pursue, and the crucial factor that makes everyone want to fill in ‘freelancer’ as their occupation.     For starters, there are plenty of ways you can save on working from home: transportation expenses, money for gas (or petrol depending on where you come from), the time spent getting to and from work, buying lunch and other work-related expenses. The Essentials If you work from home, you’ll only need: a stable Wi-Fi connection a (cell)phone number or video conference tool an email account and possibly a printer (if invoicing on paper is still your thing)     The (probably) best thing to come out of this is that there will be no more meetings, office politics and drama from the workplace. You get to focus on just getting the work done and be paid for just that. 4、在家工作      正是因為如此,自由職業具有吸引力;為能如此,很多人愿意在“工作”一欄填上“自由職業”。 對于新手,在家工作會在很多方面為你省錢:路費,汽油,來去時間,買午飯以及維持工作關系的花費。    最棒的事(或許)在于,不用在再會,不用再面對辦公室人際關系和種種鬧劇。你只需要關注完成工作,并因此拿到報酬。 5. To Pick Up Holidays At Will     Those who have worked in the office know how hard it is for them to get their days-off approved from the bosses. It’s different for freelancers. Provided that you have completed your project, simiply don’t accept any new assignment for a self-imposed break from work. Pack your bags and slip to your favourite destination with your family or friends.     If there comes a need to get back to work – a.k.a. an emergency – just whip out your laptop or smartphone and you can continue as if you have never left. It is up to you to make it your vacation fun, you get to decide where you want to tune in or tune out. 5、想休假就休假      在辦公室工作的人明白,想讓老板準許休假是多么困難。對于自由職業者就不同了。在完成工作的前提下,只要別在接受后續的任務,便可以開始一個只有支配的假期。打包出發,和你的家人朋友去最喜歡的地方。     如果需要你返回工作,或者事出緊急,拿出筆記本和手機繼續投入工作,就像你從未離開一樣。假期由你自己說了算,出入工作狀態,僅僅在于自己的決定。 Conclusion     Bear in mind that you need to have self-discipline to pull through, the kind of discipline that was imposed on you at the workplace. You can always be more more lenient with yourself, nonetheless and by having proper time management and knowing where to set your boundaries, there’s no stopping you.     So there you have it, five simple reasons why you should give freelancing a try. Are you all hyped up and going "this is so the life for me", hold your horses. You might want to check out tomorrow’s post. Remember to tune in tomorrow. 結論      請記住,自我的約束應當貫穿始終,在工作中,你應當處于這種約束之中。你可以寬容自己,但是要有合理的時間管理,并應當了解自己的底線,其他沒有什么能阻止你。     嘗試自由職業的五個理由,你是否茅塞頓開,大呼“這是我要的生活”?別急,下一篇文章會幫助你了解更多。 from:http://select.yeeyan.org/view/4363/318589
