The Game Of Work

In “The Game of Work,” Charles Coonradt addressed the question of why people prefer hobbies to work. He identified five key factors that make hobbies more appealing than work:

  • Clearly defined goals: Hobbies often have clear goals that provide a sense of direction and purpose.
  • Better scorekeeping and scorecards: Hobbies often have systems in place for tracking progress and performance.
  • More frequent feedback: Hobbies often provide regular feedback on progress, which can be motivating.
  • A higher degree of personal choice of methods: Hobbies often allow people to choose their own methods for achieving goals, which can be more satisfying than being told how to do something.
  • Consistent coaching: Hobbies often involve coaching or mentorship, which can help people develop new skills and improve their performance.
