The attitude of the average 9-to-5’er goes like this: If I do this boring job long enough and well enough, I’ll be promoted to the job that’s fast-paced and exciting. That’s the job I really want.
The problem is, showing people you can only do boring work will only consist in more boring work.
When I was very young, I spent a lot of time on touch typing programs, and learned how to type over 100 words per minute. Proud of myself, I would tell my bosses this over the years. What would they inevitably do? Give me the most boring jobs ever, of course.
There has to be a path for those who want the fast-paced exciting job NOW. A different way to prove themselves. What do you think?
