ALL WORK NO PLAY: SHOULD YOUR JOB BE FUN

Group of People Playing Uno Cards

“Should be more than just a job.”


9-5

In the event you find yourself at a job that feels more like work than fulfillment, then you have to plan your exit strategy. But is it quite that simple, or does it take more? And a lot of the times it does take more time and skill to reach a point where you can have a career you love. Notice I said the difference between having your job and having a career. One is something you love to do and the other is what you have to do. But this is more geared toward can you have fun at your job. And the answer is, depending on the job. Because most places don’t want you to enjoy just work. Which to me is a tough place to work because you want your employees to like what they do.

what is fun

What is your idea of fun on the job? Because on my job, I am able to listen to my music while I work. But there are other places where they don’t even want to see the cell phone in hand. And that is the reality of working for certain people, so you have to know who it is your are working for. But just because there are rules does not mean that you can’t have fun. Because I actually have more fun at the job where I can’t listen to music or have a cell phone in hand. This place is more restrictive, yet more fun. So we have to understand what is meant by fun when we say are you allowed to have fun on the job.

home do you land that fun job

When you are building your career resume, your hope is to always land that dream job. The job that feels like fun rather than work. But most people will never reach that point. Yet, you are not most people, your goal is your goal. So as long as you reach that point, money may not even be the issue, you could live for the Mondays and not dread the Monday work week.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
