I’m always trying to learn new things so that I may improve my great storage of wisdom. In my quest, I recently came upon a suggestion that would determine whether or not I am doing what I want to do. It seemed a little strange, yet I decided to implement it.
The procedure is to set your smart phone to provide random interruptions throughout the day. The interruption should ask, “Do you like what you are doing right now?” You then decide if you like what you are doing. Over time, you will have a good indication of how happy you are with your daily activities. It is a great concept.
I found that I mostly like what I do on a daily basis. This is not surprising since I am lazy and work at doing little of what I don’t like to do. My anagnorisis came after about two weeks of the interruptions. (Yeah, that is a real word and it means a critical discovery. I put it in to impress you. I did, right?)
I found the interruptions irritating. I did not like having to address the interruptions and therefore, the answer to the question is an emphatic “No!” My conclusion: I mostly like what I do and don’t like being asked if I like what I do by a smart (ass) phone.
I recommend that if you suspect that you like what you do, don’t inject irritation on a random basis. If you suspect that you don’t like what you do, don’t aggravate yourself further by bringing attention to it with the above question.
