Interesting work is a thrill and a fear

While I was translating the diPlayer post, I noticed that I have used the word scared or fear a couple times.

This led me to the thought that work for me should be connected with fear.

To be really involved I need to be scared of the result, I need to be unconfident about it.

All the projects that I remember as thrilling required from me to cope with significant fear of failure. This fear came
either from my incomplete knowledge of the field I was working in, or tight deadlines, or both.

This is important, because I have always been looking into ways to make work less boring and repetitive. But probably I will have to just bear with boring work for now (as before).
