work means the stuff you gotta do so that you can play later. The best work is work that allows you to play while you work. The worst work is when you gotta wake up early, get yelled at by a moron, and then go home late and exhausted. No amount of money is worth a sucky job.
I agree with Eugene, esp about the part - the best work is work that allows you to play while you work. That's really the magic secret to life, isn't it? We spend so much of our time at work, when work finally becomes play, a whole new world opens up to you.
Therein lies a new challenge. How do you strike a balance in your life when all you want to do is work?
I am anti management.. after spending years working for people and feeling like a crony I decided to bite the bullet and take my own business to the street, i make about the same, and my stress level is pretty LOW...I make my own schedule, and chill at home all day making money...
