I'm envious of the people who work day-in, day-out without complaining or even seeming to be unhappy.
I've noticed throughout my life, that I have always had trouble accepting the idea of working everyday for my whole life. Even when I'm working on my own business projects, I seem to just lack that drive and zest to really push through and keep going strong day after day. Most of the jobs working for others that I've had, I just counted the hours until I could go home for the day. I detested many of those jobs.
Recently, I took a career/personality test, and it suggested that teaching would be my strong suit, which somewhat surprised me, since I've always enjoyed working solo in the outdoors. One time I tutored Spanish in college to other students, and I found that I really enjoyed that job. That was probably my favorite job.
But.....it's the idea of having to be locked into something for a long time that scares me. I probably wouldn't last if I had to teach elementary school here in the US, for example. I just can't imagine going all day everyday. I've never had a full time job.
I have a terrible work ethic as well.... Fortunately not when working on my own projects. I just canÂ´t be an employee even if the salary is good. I feel like I am wasting my time.
What works best for me is limiting the things I buy...Not being overly stingy but thinking twice before buying some overpriced crap that I might not even need.
Yeah, I guess I really can push through when working on my own business projects. But it's the business side of that work that kills me. Obviously I'd have a better work ethic if I could only work on the things I like to work on, and just farm out everything else. But you really have to get big before you can afford to farm stuff out.
The bottom line for me though, is that I really have a hard time with consistency. Some days...just some days...I could put in 10 hours into a project...other days though, just a couple.
