There is some kind of hidden work. A kind of work you can’t define yet you do.
The non work.
It’s a strange work and it happens when you don’t do what you think you were supposed to do, like in my case developing software, and instead you do something else, like managing people, helping other.
It does feel like you’re skipping work and to some extend that is true, but it’s not the whole story.
I believe the thing here is that what we truly miss is the ability to do what we thought was our work.
Accepting is a hard part of this topic because it all starts with not accepting the new kind of work we’re entitled to.
