I mentioned Richard Feynman in my last post. For those who don’t know the name, Richard Feynman was one of the world’s greatest scientists. He was a physicist – not very glamorous you might say, but here is a video of him explaining the nature of light. It doesn’t matter if you can’t understand it all exactly – what matters is his infectious enthusiasm. If you can have the same enthusiasm about your job that Feynman obviously has here, then you are very fortunate indeed.
Actually I don’t. Well, at least I don’t think it’s boring – and that’s all that matters.
But I have to admit – to the rest of the world, jobs done by tax lawyers, accountants and actuaries are considered to be boring jobs done by boring people. I mean, which would you rather admit to – being an airline pilot or a tax lawyer?
