I came across this link many times over the past week.
As a software developer, I’ve worked my share of 16-hour days. I’ll admit that I can’t argue everything on that list (I struggle with time management, for example), but I believe that long workdays often say a different set of things about someone. For me and many people I know, the list looks more like this:
- You love what you do.
- You’re not just in it for the money.
- Your life is full of supportive people.
- You’re learning a lot.
- You follow through.
- You’ll never be unemployed.
- You’re doing work that matters.
