Was listening to a podcast about how it’s okay not to be passionate about your job while I was working on server maintenance for work today. On a Saturday. After roughly 3.5 hours of sleep. After pulling more or less an all-nighter working on it.
I’m not really passionate about my work. I like my job, and I’m a hard worker – but for the sake of my health and sanity, I’ve tamped down my workaholic tendencies somewhat in the past year or two. Still, this is stuff that needs to be done, and I was scheduled to work today for a few hours on this server work. It’s just more time-consuming than I had anticipated.
And now I’m listening to another podcast on how to deal with burnout.
