Something I've come to realize about myself is that I don't like work. I dislike having to get up..having to be somewhere..having to do something. It's not that I'm lazy (I can be extremely hardworking sometimes..) it's just I hate having to do something. Even if I have to do this thing just once, I'll still hate every moment leading up to me doing this thing. Ironically, I'm quite capable of doing a lot of things...I just hate being scheduled to do it.
This is why I've had a hard time picking and sticking to a career. I don't want to be boxed in like that. I have no idea if future me is going to like doing the same type of things past me likes, all I know is preseent me would rather let future me figure it out without dictating terms to him..if that makes sense.
It's a shame because I know I'm capable of producing value..but the value I produce is only realized as value after it has been produced. While it was being being produced, it was being produced for the sake of itself...regardless of potential value. I like if what I'm doing turns out to have value, but absolutely hate it when I'm expected to produce value.
Which is kind of the definition of work. Thus, I hate work.
But the world doesn't work that way (but then again the world doesn't really 'work' either, not well anyway..)
So what would you recomend as career to someone who hates work?
( I figured I'd ask, you never know, right?)
