Unpleasant Becomes Pleasant

From time to time, we find ourselves dealing with work that’s totally unpleasant.


What can we do about it?


We can change our approach, and do it differently.


For instance, I find it really hard and stressful to face a camera as I speak my script.


So I wondered, how can I make it more pleasant?


I could simply ask questions to myself, and act like I’m actually answering to someone.


And that makes me enjoy this exercise a lot more, as much as it helps me structure my thoughts more effectively.


In other words, if you don’t like to do a specific task, change your approach.


That’s how gamification was born, just sayin’.
