IMHO those are words suitable for framing --for engraving!
I'm trying to convince myself that I *won't* work harder when I'm self-employed, than I currently do as a corporate geek. Not having a lot of luck, there. The IT shop that I'm currently in is OK, for an IT shop. Hours are moderately reasonable...I'm home for dinner most nights.
But, I gotta tell ya, when things slide downhill and I'm pulling all-nighters, or two-nighters, or all-weekenders..... getting paid for that extra time would be nice. My Dad was a consultant, and he *loved* getting those "we need you immediately" calls....he and Mom went to Europe after one of his clients had him put back together all of their AR databases that had been inadvertently purged.
