Coming back after 2 weeks feels like Christmas morning

I don't think I've ever been able to say that about a job, but now that I'm working for myself and building something that matters to me, I'm so excited to be at my desk.

I know that not every day will be like this, but man it feels good to have gotten here finally.

What gets you excited about your work?

    Really cool that is how it should be, right?
    I am really excited about using technology (especially serverless architectures) and build products for solving problems 🙂

      Thank you for sharing Sunny, this sounds super exciting!

    I feel you.

    To make a change. Sounds cheesy, but it can be different from time to time. Sometimes I help people building products that help and enable other people do to great things. Sometimes it's working on my own app - which again helps people to create something of value.

    I sometimes purposely stop while being in a flow to just keep the excitement, as I did on Friday. I was really excited to continue working on the problem/solution today.

      That's such a cool tip! Stopping short of the point where you're getting bored / losing excitement so you can pick it back up and still want to carry on. Thanks for sharing! :)

    I was really dreading Mondays because of my day job, so made a change. While self-employment has not yielded any success yet, I feel so much happier overall. It's really powerful when you're actually excited to work.

      Well done on taking that step! It's scary but I'm in a similar place, just got to a stage where I was getting sick from staying somewhere so toxic. Keep going!
