Hello, hi and hey! 😊
I thought it would be interesting to have a "facts about me" type of post but I'm pretty much the same person since the last time I did one, so no new facts about me are needed. Instead I thought it would be fun to describe my work/studying habits. I hope other writes will use this as a base too and if you could be so kind : don't copy my posts without giving the idea credit first. I support people who openly share ideas with eachother and inspire eachother but I don't support copycat behaviour (imitation). I'm sorry if I sound rude and thank you for respecting other content creators ❤️ (as you may know it's never easy to come up with a new idea especially during writer's block)
How often do you work?
I work a little bit everyday but my tasks are different every single day. One day I study and the other I'm at my job or working on a creative project at home. I also tend to work in spurts which is both a good and a bad thing. If I feel like it, I can work for hours but if I don't feel like it, it's very difficult to force me to do anything at all. Important causes motivate me to tackle new projects.
What kind of environment do you prefer to work in?
I prefer to change my working environment as much as possible. I appreciate an environment that inspires me. Fortunately inspiration can be found anywhere with the correct attitude. Problematic situations are my biggest source of motivation.
Work alone or working together with others?
Both. Working with others is an amazing opportunity to meet new people and connect with them through work. Working alone however, gives you the opportunity to have control over your own schedule which is something I strive for.
Working early in the morning or late at night?
Early in the morning. When I was a teenager I was quite the nightowl! Always staying up to at least 2 am no matter how early I needed to wake up the next day. Somehow everything shifted when I turned 20. Suddenly it was easier for me to wake up at 5 am than it was to stay up until 5 am. My concentration is a its peek 30 minutes - 2 hours after waking up so waking up early equals to getting the job done.
Do you prefer practical jobs or jobs that focus on theory/academic subject?
I prefer to study the theory behind a subject but turning it into something practical and useful. For example in my opinion philosophy becomes most useful to people when it's written down.
Work for money or work for happiness?
If you need the money then work to earn it but don't, I repeat don't stay at a job you hate for the rest of your life just because it's easy. A job is much more than a way to earn an income. Think about it for a second; if you are going to do something everyday then it might as well be something you feel is worth spending all your time doing, am I right?
First ever job?
My first ever job was at the age of 14 as a teaching assitant on a local art camp for kids.
The crazy dream job?
I've always felt drawn to a circus kind of lifestyle and all of it's ups and downs. I guess it would be fun to experience traveling around with a circus and documenting the life of the preformers. I also dreamt of becoming a doctor but that would be crazy due to the fact that I'm the biggest hypochondriac out there.
The more realistic dream job?
Special education teacher & Entrepeneur.
Learning something new through work or doing the same thing over and over again until you learn to do it perfectly?
I would lie if I were to say that I don't fear failure. I like to ensure that I do things the right way but I'd rather be working and learning something new along the way rather than letting my anxiety over perfection take over too much.
Working from home or never having to bring your work home?
Both. I've tried both and I like both. But both have their positive and negative sides. Working from home can be more comfortable but it can also be difficult to work at an environment designed for relaxation. Never having to bring your work home can help you achieve a better balance between work and freetime but sometimes you still bring your work home in your thoughts if you didn't get everything done during your workday.
Would you rather have a job that pays well but bad relationships with the people you work with or excellent friendships at work but a terrible salary?
I'd rather get along with the people I work with. What do I do with that much money anyway when I'm not the type of person who desires the luxury lifestyle? Me and my workmates can be rich in spirit instead!
Have a great week at work! 😊
