I like the quote in your signature pic. Is it yours or from somewhere?The majority of the time I love my job =)
I do bookkeeping/payroll/taxes in a year-round accounting office.
Things I love about it:
- Limited client interaction
- I'm given specific assignments w/very manageable deadlines
- I'm constantly learning new things
- I'm given a lot of freedom/space to do my work at my own pace
- Every day is a bit different (it's not really repetitive)
- It's a Mon - Fri day job (I'm free on the evenings & weekends)
- The work requires actual thinking rather than just being mindless work
- It also requires specialized knowledge
- If I choose to stay in this career, there are practically unlimited options for certificates/further education
- My boss is an Introvert (lol)
There are more things but those the things that first come to mind.
Thanks. I didn't write it, I just ran across it online a few weeks ago. It didn't have an author listed but I just did a quick search & found that it's from Frank Herbert's Dune book series (which I've heard of but never read). It's called the "Litany Against Fear" & the entire quote is:I like the quote in your signature pic. Is it yours or from somewhere?
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
Many thanks, it's years since I attempted to read dune.Thanks. I didn't write it, I just ran across it online a few weeks ago.

It's common to do a JD in lieu of an MBA. There is so much law involved in business now - any business - that people love having a lawyer around (or at least someone with a JD).The fact that my boss has his law degree and is still choosing to stick with this company says a lot about the company and what they are like to work for.
Dune is an excellent series. Worth reading.
I'll remember that the next time that I have free time to do some reading =)I'll second this....
You're welcome, anytime.Many thanks, it's years since I attempted to read dune.
I have someone who may benefit from this quote, thanks for the effort of finding its origin.
I considered journalism many years ago. The things that stopped me from going for it were the deadlines, the fact that, depending on who you work for, you normally don't get to choose your topics right off the bat, and it seemed to be more of an Extrovert's job. And I didn't want the criticism (but that's more of an individual preference).While we are on the topic, what would be the potential good things, and pitfalls for an INTJ who wanted to take up journalism. I am mostly referring to hard news, digging up stories, and the ability to write objectively on a topic.
