What Doesn't Seem Like Work?

Paul Graham:

“If something that seems like work to other people doesn’t seem like work to you, that’s something you’re well suited for. […]

The stranger your tastes seem to other people, the stronger evidence they probably are of what you should do.”

I totally agree, though I didn't realize this for myself until relatively recently. I hated writing and editing as a kid, only to discover how enjoyable they were after dropping out of college. Now I'm lucky enough to have a paid writing gig, and I'm tossing around the idea of starting a small editing business on the side.1
