• No but I think after a few years I would try to pursue new ways of doing it like working in a different place, or working in a different way... +2 :)
  • No but as everything else you have to keep it interesting.
  • If you really enjoy what you are doing no, but there are different aspects that you have to consider. Maybe now you have to do the business part of it as well ,like selling yourself or bookwork. Some people might not enjoy that as much and it could change how you feel
  • That's an interesting point, but no, I don't think it would, at least it'd be better in working in a boring office from 9-5 looking at numbers.
  • No, I don't think so. Anything beats a job you hate;it's continual, boring torture, to watch the clock from 9-5.
  • Everything becomes a job at some point. I have had the opportunity to do just that. As much as I love what I do, sometimes I just don't want to do it. People think I have a glamourous job. It is a lot of work to. I get to travel all over the world and get lots of time off too. It is fun sometimes, but other times it is just work.
  • Nope, I'm with Mark Twain “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
  • That depends on the nature of the thing, and on how much you love doing that thing. Some things are very "open", allowing the do-er to express themselves in VERY many different ways. For example: writing. Others are much more restrictive. For example: designing o-rings for jar lids. I'd get bored silly doing that second thing. I might never get bored doing that first thing, as there are so many different types of writing available to the writer.
  • Not at all. Making a living at something you love never tires.
  • Yes. I used to do a single-panel cartoon (never published, although there was one hanging in the Smithsonian). I loved doing it and still do - but having to depend on it for a living takes a lot of the desire out of it. The concept of "doing what you like doing" has merit - to an extent But it can turn into drudgery and burnout.
