I was recently invited to a company’s presentation on construction. One of the things they said was that most construction tasks are too important to have this disconnect between what we are doing and how we are feeling about it. While I’m certainly not claiming to understand the technical aspects of construction, I have a few theories which may explain this disconnect.
One is that the sense of urgency of doing construction tasks is tied to a feeling of urgency that we have about our own work life. We get that feeling when something is important to us, like when the light is on in our office, and we want to get to it in a hurry. This same feeling can be made more apparent if you are not too tired or have a bad day and you want to get to work early.
Another one is that we have an aversion to being rushed. When you’re working on a project of any kind, you want to be allowed to complete it as fast as possible. You have to allow your mind and body to rest and recover. This is the time when you are most likely to get distracted and to make mistakes.
Like many other things, we actually have an aversion to being rushed. It is the same with work. If you take a day off or a break or a vacation, you should be allowed to rest and recover. This is why a lot of people work at a job that is not their own, but that they have a manager that is allowing them to work on an “at will” basis.
Some people just don’t think or act quickly. I know this to be true because I’ve been there. Some people don’t like to take any breaks or take a day off. I’ve only seen it when I have been having a bad day and just want to go back to work. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has experienced this.
Electrical engineers tend to work long and hard, and this is why most of us have to take time off from the grind sometimes. When you’re on a break, you dont have to worry about the clock ticking or the end of the workday. You can take a day off and play some games or do something you dont normally do. It’s just a day off, and a good day at that.
When I was younger, I used to take a day off to relax. But I didnt really enjoy it. I would always end up stressed out and hating the work that I had to do, and I would hate the feeling of not being able to accomplish something important. Now I take days off to do things I really enjoy. Like go to the gym, play a game, and take a walk with my dog.
So why did you choose to take a day off to become an electrical engineer? To answer that question, I can only suggest that it was the day off that allowed you to take a break from the stresses that usually come with working a job. Many of us take a day off because we just feel too tired, or we are stressed out because we have to do a really important task or two and we don’t want to take a day off.
Well that and a lot of the reason is because it’s a lot of work. Electrical engineers are often found in a job that is similar or is directly related to something they are already doing. In my case, I am already an electrical engineer and I had to take the day off to start a new career. So to me it wasnt a day off but a break from the stress of that job.
Because electrical engineering is such a unique and demanding profession, it’s no wonder that so many electrical engineers are found in a similar position to what we’re in. I was recently told by a colleague that he had been offered a job with a startup with a similar title. However, he refused because he wanted to be an electrician first, and I think he was trying to do exactly what I said.
