Mary Poppins had it right.
I have a lot of things to do in life that are not fun. I have realized a while ago that unless it's 'fun', it's not going to happen. If knitting isn't fun, then I'm not going to knit. If writing isn't fun, I'm not going to write.
If working as a nurse doesn't have moments of fun, I'm NOT going to continue doing it. So, the challenge is, how do you make things fun? How do you make your chores fun? How do you derive satisfaction from doing things you don't necessarily like to do? Should you find reward in the doing and getting it done? Or should you reward yourself once it's finished? Which is easier?
What do you think?
