Don't bore me!

Does it mean that I have an attention deficit disorder if I easily lose interest in things? That I need to constantly have bright shiny spinning objects dancing up and down before my eyes? See, I am starting to think that's what the problem is. For some time now, I have had a negative mood about my work. Dreading coming, and not really feeling like I was as productive as I should be. And now, this week, thanks to a lab study that has generated a large amount of interest in our department, the attitude seems to have flipped around to the positive again. Maybe that's the problem. Some people are perfectly capable of doing what needs to be done, and motivating from within. I cannot do that. I need that motivation to come from the exterior. If people are excited about what I am doing, then I am motivated, and I want to maintain that excitement level for all. I think it is mostly that I am a performer, so I need an audience. But it is also mostly because I want to please people (there are only like 5 people in the universe that are going to get my humor reference to "also mostly", and if you post a comment on here with the correct attribution, I will buy you a drink of your choosing).

So that's the trick, then, is it? What it comes down to is: "Don't bore me!"

I guess I have a very low tolerance for it. But this week's lab study at work proves that my boredom is not irretrievable. So perhaps there is hope.

  2. While some of us consider Sarah Palin to be a "comedy show", she was actually a presidential candidate. So, I am sorry, you are incorrect. No reward for you.
