In "Is the problem that dislikable work feels more productive?" I posed a simple question -
I’ve been thinking about this since I read it this morning. Could it be that work you dislike and are being mandated to do feels more productive? I did about six hours of great work today, but most of it was talking to people I enjoy talking to and learn a lot from and playing around in Google analytics. I felt like I got nothing done until I looked at my list at the end of the day – tons of good stuff checked off.
One of the greatest things about working for yourself is that you can focus on what you want to do, and often that’s work-that-feels-like-play-but-also-pays-you. Isn’t that magnificent? Work that doesn’t feel like working that’s highly productive? Just, it’s easy not to feel productive afterwards, since it felt like playing all day… what do you think?
A fantastic response from Joe in the comments just now. Since it's an older post, it's unlikely anyone would see it but me, which seemed like a shame. Here's what Joe wrote -
Ok, a newer post led me here to this older one, so this may be a responds to something out of date. I've felt this way before and I've given it some thought.
On Cameron Chardukian
I’ve had a lot going on lately, and have had a number of epiphanies over the last couple weeks so I thought I’d write a post about what I’m currently working on, what I’ve learned this summer, and what you can expect from cameronchardukian.com in the near future.
After a lifetime of being an introvert I decided to take part in The 90 Day Social Challenge. I planned to get out of the house and do at least one social thing per day. The goal of this challenge was to develop my social skills, do some crazy stuff while I’m still a teenager, and build a social circle.
The results of the challenge?
