SQLAndy

I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.

Would You Do Your Hobby For a Living?

Another recent editorial I wrote for SQLServerCentral talks about whether you would be happy doing your hobby for living. For years I considered computers and software a hobby, but for the past ten years or so it’s been a job and as such, less fun than when it was just for fun.

I like working, but the difference between work and a hobby – for me – is that I have to work and battle through stress, frustration, and all the rest. When I’m building something in my workshop and get tired or frustrated, I just put it away, sometimes for a day, sometimes for a month, and return to it when I find the fun it again.
