Is it a lot of work?

There are many questions we could be asking when faced with a new project –

Do you think it will be a fulfilling experience?
Do you think I’ll learn a lot?
Do you think it’ll be meaningful?
Will I be able to work with, learn from and connect with wonderful people?

And, yet, more often than not, the default question is – “Is it a lot of work?”

My experience has shown that fulfilling/learning filled/meaningful experiences are always a tremendous amount of work. They also rarely have a clear, well-trodden path. I’ve also learnt that I rarely remember the effort with anything but fondness. It is in those moments of effort that I have felt most alive. And, the joy from having to make sense out of chaos? That’s how we get made.

Different questions -> Different results.
