If money weren't an issue, I'd reduce my paid-for project load and take on more creative projects....like getting my book published. I'd also dig into some other new business ideas that I've been tossing around with two friends.

If money weren't an issue, I'd let go of some guilt. Specifically, the guilt for taking on too much or too little and tying that to a dollar value. Because it wouldn't matter anymore.
