Today was “damn it feels good to be a gangsta” day at work. On DIFGTBAG day, you ignore email and boring crap that you don’t want to do, and work on things that are fun and interesting. I have discovered that when I follow this simple formula, my job rocks pretty hard.
It wasn’t all sunshine and rap music; I did have to go to a meeting in the afternoon. In the meeting, had an epiphany regarding the nature of humanity: when confronted with an unescapable task that is difficult or unpleasant, people generally reveal themselves to be one of two types. There’s the “okay, that sucks — now how are we going to do it?” type, and there’s the “oh, that’s impossible — we can’t do that!” type. That latter group is just a pain in the ass, really.
