I love 60% of what I do every day. The other 40% I tolerate.
I love strategy, developing new initiatives, expanding the scope of the Visual Story Network, meeting new people, working with teams, etc.
Every role has downsides. I have to manage a lot of detail. I manage my own schedule, book my own flights, reconcile the books at the end of each month and write and edit most of the communications.
I am the chief fundraiser.
Fortunately, there is nothing I hate about my job (e.g. like my strong dislike for filing taxes).
If you enjoy more than 50% of your job, hate less than 5% and can tolerate the rest, count yourself blessed.
If you like more than 60% of your job...when you wake up each morning, get on your knees, kiss the ground, and worship God with gladness!
If your enjoyment percentage is under 50% or your hate percentage is over 20% you should probably start to look for a new role.
