I read a statement to that effect in a self-help book and thought that it applied especially to me. I know, for example, that in a few months, money will be tight because my pay will be extremely low for two months in a row, December and January.
However, instead of worrying about money being so tight during those months, I'm writing articles for publication and am drawing up a nonfiction book outline. In that respect, I'm "happening" to things. I'm also squeezing more work now than waiting for the other shoe to drop.
