I also realized that getting high on work and life depends on how much you want to do what you do. You don’t do what you want. You know how to want what you are already doing, what you have planned and what, by your own choice, you need to do.
I want to do some things because they are shit-hot, it’s easy. And some are boring or difficult, but they lead to a high goal — I guess it’s worth it. But the problem is that they may not lead to the goal, and you’ve just wasted your time with no pleasure.
I think we need to do what we do with big obscure and therefore unattractive tasks – just split them. It is easy to make a small task an attractive one.
