Dave easily answered, "People who actually do something with their lives. I feel sometimes as if I’m a pimp for the motion picture company... ask me if I care if anyone goes to see King Kong."
He went on to talk about how the real fun he has is using his show to try things outside his personality. For instance, when Jennifer Aniston was on the show she wasn't open to extended chatting about too many things. He spoke about how he asked her to come to his house to continue the conversation over cup of coffee, adding that he was absolutely serious because "This is a complex from high school where there was no way I could ask a girl like Jennifer Aniston to come visit me at my house."
While I'm not all that interested in having coffee with Jennifer Aniston, I was tracking with this idea that there is always a perk to a job... even one that you aren't crazy about. We all have stuff that we're required to do that we don't like (for instance, I'm not a big fan of my current 75 minute commute). However, there is usually a perk that that keep us doing it (like for me, I enjoy teaching for life transformation, building friendships, helping the church get healthier, and even the surface level side of receiving a simple paycheck to help pay the bills).
What works for you with your job?
What can't you stand?
And what kind of percentage of your job do you think you need to actually like in order to do it well (i.e. 50%, 20%, 70% etc)?
