Do you want a job that challenges you?


Do you want a job that challenges you?

I'm a programmer, my job is a challenge almost every day.

Working in a 4* hotel has hardened me, I've had to deal with a lot of shit so I'm not intimidated by much anymore. I've had to deal with large parties ( 700 people this weekend ) while we were short staffed, not go home until 2 or 3am and then go in early the next day. I did a trial shift for a coffee shop recently, a customer said to me "My god it's really busy isn't it? You must be stressed?" And I'm like NOPE.

Maybe before I had a kid. Now I’m being challenged enough at home thank you. That’s why I choose to teach the same ole classes instead of picking something I haven’t taught before. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

One that kind of pampers me might be nice!

I’ve already got one of those, and that’s why I love it.

The ideal is an easy job with good pay. However, tools like ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion are making it hard. The GPT-4 is insanely good. I'm afraid what I do or am good at might be replaceable by AI.

Definitely. I literally masturbate when something challenges me. I'm working through it in therapy, but it's a challenge. I have had a lot of therapists, needless to say. It's a vicious cycle.

I have plenty of challenges to keep me busy, gonna pass

yes but I wish it just challenged me with the work and not the customers and employees.

All jobs are too challenging for me, so no. Besides that, though, and counting that there are different forms of challenge, I'd still say not really, I guess, because I wouldn't want my livelihood/bread and butter to depend on meeting challenges that it's not garaanteed I could meet. Also I'd feel stupid and inferior if I couldn't meet some challenge (I'm thinking intellectual challenges now).

Maybe, challenges are nice but drains me. I'm not stable enough yet for daily challenges, if not hourly challenges. I want to but my headspace isn't quite there yet.
