Jobs Should be Interesting, Not Death-Inspiring

One thing that always bothers me, is that people read this quote to say that you should go have an “exotic” or “expensive” job. I often have people say that sometimes you just have to do the boring or depressing job because you need money. My answer is this–if the job isn’t something cool, then make it more fun. Be a happy person, play jokes, ask interesting questions, change the environment to be more fun. Just because the work itself is dull, doesn’t mean the job has to be. **DB
