I'm confused. When does IM (any aspect of it) start becoming enjoyable? I hear many members talking about how much they love programming/marketing/SEO, or whatever. I find all of it so dull. I especially don't enjoy spamming. I don't get all this talk about people being motivated and doing the best they can when I'm at the point where I think to myself, "was that 9-to-5 really worse than this??" So far, I'm not able to find an answer that is satisfactory. I want to achieve success, but I also want to actually love and/or enjoy what I'm doing. It feels like a chore to me. What can be done about this and what is the alternative? There's gotta be something that I can do. I've swallowed the "alternative energy" pill of the business world. All those promises of a better life, the temptation of not being some corporate slave, and being fooled into believing that IM will free me from mediocrity. It hasn't. Not yet... But when?? So far, I can't figure out what I'm doing here other than chasing a dream that is always just out of reach but never quite there. No matter which method I choose - I end up forcing myself to go deeper only to feel completely unsatisfied. Much of this online work seems empty to me. Sure you bring in the money, but it's like so... unreal... unnatural?? One of those words. Maybe intangible would be more accurate. Most of the time I seriously don't understand what I'm doing. This noggin of mine can't see shit when it comes to creativity and innovation. Whenever some of you guys write about how you achieved success I can't help but wonder how to think the way you do. You are all a mystery to me.
