How true is this? Now and days I don’t get asked all that much to help out with an IT thing here or there. I’ve made it pretty clear that I spend every waking second dealing with IT, so when I get home, the last thing that I want to do it go back to work. Ironically, when I go home, I end up posting blogs tinkering with new website ideas, or start researching something computer related anyways. I guess the fine line is that loving IT is loving what you do with IT, where when you have to work or help someone out, it becomes mundane and tedious. I typically will help out if you ask. But I have a couple of conditions: 1) You have to sit with me while I do what it is you are asking, 2) I need a beer, and 3) Every time that I speak with you, it doesn’t happen to be a computer IT problem.
It’s easy to be passive about this. The subject of work comes up often, if you sense the need for help, you can just share the story about how you discovered to make money by solving peoples IT problems. Or the story about how you the last 60 hours working on getting an IT problem resolved. It’s a funny graphic, posted on my Facebook wall, which I decided to share with you. Enjoy!
