I recently decided to undertake a unique challenge in leadership, a challege which most people will deem silly and pointless, to lead my own raiding guild in the game World of Warcraft. Before I get into the meat of this post, I recognize that WoW is just a game, and as such most people dismiss the fact that it has any real world value whatsoever. This I will agree with as it is, just a game. However, I do feel that real world value can be taken from it.
Much in line with my last post, I have been feeling quite dissatisfied lately. I wonder what life is supposed to be, and why I am so unhappy simply being content, living The American Dream. Is there nothing more? We’re we born to simply work our days away, constantly counting down until that next weekend finally arrives?
A gloomy outlook, I know. I have never been known to be much of an optimist, but think about it. What is life about, and what do you actually spend your life doing? Do you spend it doing the things you want to do? I would be willing to bet that for the average person, the answer to that question is no. Even if you love your job, given an option of going to work, or spending the day doing something else you enjoy, who would choose work?
Since I helped my Father resolve this issue this weekend, and it seems like a pretty common occurrence, I thought I would share the solution. It was very easy to fix in the end, but in my google searches while many people were asking about how to fix the issue, finding a solution was quite hard.
What does it mean to be a professional? Does it mean that you have some sort of more valuable opinion on a subject than I? Does it mean you are better at it than I am? Why do people love…
