Would you rather be naturally great at a job you don't enjoy, or naturally average at a job you do enjoy?

although, i'm not average at anything; i'm only great or awful.

this reminds me of GRE and LSAT questions....aak...flashback....

Andrew said...

Average at a job I enjoy as well. There is something to be said about quality of life.

KP said...

I strive to be average.

Karen said...

great at a i job i don't enjoy. i don't like being average at things.

Dan said...

The latter. I'm with Karen on hating to be average, but the key word here is "naturally." I'd start at average and work my way up to kick-ass.

What Karen said.

too many unknowns here. what's the pay at these jobs? how great of a difference is enjoyment? if I only mildly not enjoy the job I'm good at, but i have a good salary and flexibility to have fun hobbies, I'd probably take it. However, if the jobs are equivalent in salary, i'm going with the one I like.

i only ever wanted to be average at everything so i could stay under the radar.

i'm naturally awesome at what i do but i don't enjoy it everday. and i'm too competitive to be average at a job.

John said...

Great at a jb I hate, b.c. I assume I'll get more money and can have somewhat normal work hours

Average at a job I enjoy. No question. I second the quality of life comments.
