Sometimes a gig just isn't worth keeping. You work hard getting fresh tunes and try to work hard on the promo, but it just isn't working out. Maybe the clientele, staff, or owner of an establishment are tough to deal with. Maybe you're making peanuts and you think you could do better. If you find yourself regularly wishing you didn't have to do a gig or that you were somewhere else while you were playing, then it might be time to stop punishing yourself and look elsewhere. If your heart is in the right place, you started DJing because it was fun. You can't play well if you're not enjoying yourself. A short term break and a new opportunity could be exactly what you need to get your hunger back.
