W: This is unbelievable unlike, any video game I've ever played before. It's so boring yet. So relaxing at the same time. 1]How did you hear about this driving simulator?
M: My brother introduced it to me last year. 2]I was surprised to find how educational and realistic it was. It's called euro truck simulator. But they have other versions as well for America and so on. I was really drawn to the scenery. The roots go through parts of the country. You don't only see as a tourist. W:I can see that it seems so simple, just transporting cargo from point a to point b driving from one city to another. 3]But I really appreciate all the details that go into the game. It's even given me a new appreciation for the logistics industry and traffic on the road.
M: I completely agree my brother also introduced me to some videos of someone that streams their game online. It was fascinating to watch really, this guy drove very carefully obeyed all the road signs and traffic rules, such a contrast to most violent games.
W: Honestly, playing has inspired me to look into the industry more. I've read articles about how self-driving trucks may soon be available and could greatly impact cargo logistics. Considering all that goes into driving these larger vehicles. It's amazing that we could soon have that kind of technology. M: I've got one step further. I registered to take a safe driving course to improve my real life driving skills. In a way, I feel like I have a head start compared to other students in the class. Playing this video game has given me some maneuvering practice already.
W: I'm not sure how accurate the video game is compared to real life situations. 4]But if it results in more drivers looking both ways before entering an intersection, I'd say that's a positive outcome.

W: how do you like being self-employed?
M: There are obvious benefits, though I don't seem to have the freedom I anticipated. As I just don't seem able to decline, work offers and working alone. There have been times when I found that money alone provides insufficient motivation. Have you experienced the same since you began working for yourself ?
W: Sometimes unlike the rest of the workforce who have managers to prompt motivation, whenever they're feeling lazy or bored, we self-employed workers perform our jobs without a manager to lift our spirits. There's no one around to offer praise or initiate collaboration, no one to make greater use of our interests and talents.
M: That's a fact. Not every manager behaves with such awareness and care, of course. 6]And certainly not all managers have a clue how to motivate people still having a manager nearby at least indicates there's an opportunity. They'll be decent enough to look out for you when your energy and focus begin to deplete.
W: 7] The motivator I value, most is autonomy. I've learned not to sacrifice my prized autonomy by working all hours of the day and by saying to every client request.
M: Yes. I need to remind myself that I selected this lifestyle for the independence. I don't miss aspects of permanent full time employment I disliked, such as the office politics, job insecurity, inflexible hours and so on. I wouldn't mind a bit more in the form of praise though, praise, which is on the record.
W: That'll come with time relentless is inevitably cultivated to be a, human interaction, engaging with clients, getting written testimony and recommendations staying in contact with clients afterwards. These are things you'll find will come in due course and provide you with motivation.
M: You're right. That's an area 8] I do need to put some more effort into building closer relationships with those who engage my services and skills.
