How do you keep interested in your job, year after year?
For me, one of the most important motivators that gets me out of bed is knowing that I will learn something new, every day.
Being a freelance technology writer is an excellent way of making sure you never really get a chance to get stuck in your comfort zone, let alone bored.
But itâ€™s not just the technology, and in fact the continuous quest for faster, newer iterations of the same kind of gadgets can become monotonous in its own way. To me, itâ€™s the fact that every project is slightly different, and each one will inevitably throw up issues or questions that Iâ€™ve never handled before.
My point? I guess to remind you that if youâ€™re constantly having to solve new problems, make sure you remember itâ€™s a blessing, not a curse â€“ even if it doesnâ€™t feel like it at the time.
