I have seen a few emails that seem to be written from a place that is totally out of touch with reality. It seems the person who wrote the email was so angry, that they would rather kill someone than consider the thought to be reasonable.
While I have yet to find an email that is written with such complete disregard for the idea, I still think that’s kind of the opposite of what makes this business work.
I think that the reason that this business works is the fact that the people who do it are so passionate about what they are doing. Most of these guys are self-proclaimed experts, so when they get an idea they take it very seriously.
I don’t think its the passion that makes them love their job, but the fact that they are passionate and dedicated to it. I was involved in another job that had this exact same type of culture, but the people in that job were so passionate about what they were doing that they would do anything to make it successful.
I’m not saying that they are the only people who love their work. However, I do think that there is a lot of passion, enthusiasm, and dedication that goes into any endeavor that is important enough to them to continue to work on. I think it is important to be able to recognize this in yourself and then learn from it.
I’m not a lawyer but I do know that if someone is passionate about something they will work very hard to make that passion their goal. I think this is particularly true for developers, designers, writers and artists. We all want our work to be appreciated and to be able to work hard to find ways to make it more so. If we can’t get this feeling, it’s difficult to be creative or continue to pursue our passion.
This is an example of the kind of unsolicited thinking that happens when we start thinking of ourselves as self-involved. It’s the kind of thing that can get a person so fired up they don’t know where they are. We all do it and many of us don’t take it seriously, but this is an example of trying to use our creativity as a shield that protects our self-centeredness. It’s not a great idea.
I find this very difficult to believe. How would you feel if you were asked a rude question? How would you respond to the person who asked you the question? I dont want to tell you how to feel, I just want to say that it is very possible. This is another example of the “unwanted thought” that happens when we stop thinking about ourselves as self-involved.
I’m not really sure the real problem here. I think the person who asked the rude question is just being a jerk. A more likely case is that they are not sure what to say because they are unable to come up with a response. In that case, they’ll most likely end up being rude to you.
This is a problem I’ve had personally. I am not sure how to handle this. I like to think by now I’ve mastered the art of not being rude, but I’m not there yet.
