    Outside of work/family responsibilities that is.

    Not give sarcastic/obnoxious replies to threads on here. I tend to fail a lot.

    Not to post pics of bunnies.

    OP, why not give us an example of something difficult for you, since you took work and family out of it.

    Ok examples, I was thinking of challenging activities
    such as teaching disabled kids to swim, or carving marble, or fell running etc.

    There is nothing harder for me than the whole taking-the-high-road, being-the-bigger-man, turning-the-other-cheek deal. There are too many instances where divine retribution comes too slowly. There's nothing more satisfying than throttling THAT annoying SoB until he turns blue in the face. (You know the guy, everyone has someone like that. You're probably thinking about him right now. "Oh I hate that guy.";))

    Going to rehab, ergo not using "illegal" drugs.

    I try hard to be this way.
    But I just hope it's not like that "serenity now" thing on Seinfeld where you repress anger and then blow up one day. :eek:

    If it's difficult, I choose not to do it.

    I guess i tend to find that many of the things I find/have found difficult are in the end the most rewarding,
    so perhaps I should have tried framing the question differently.

    What outside of work and family do you find most rewarding (in a non-monetary sense)?

    Thanks for the responses, sarcasm rarely bothers me.
    Yeah dmr727 that's what I'm trying to eradicate more of in me.

    Ok, I'll bite.

    One of the most rewarding experiences I partake in is helping out at a horse ranch that takes in abused and neglected horses and rehabilitates them.

    The hardest thing I ever did was getting my butt back to the gym after college. I had lost over 20 pounds and was a skinny weakling- 6'3" and 143#. It took several years to get back to my former self, then even more to get to 195#, where I've stayed ever since.

    The second most difficult thing was moving from a small college town in Ohio to Chicago with $800, no job and whatever I could fit in my car.

    Interesting. I was stuck at 135 forever until I committed to the gym and a high-protien diet. I'm at 175 now and not bad for an old dude (62).

    I moved from Ohio to Boston with $200 in my pocket. No job, friend, place to stay and so on. My dad told I'd be swindled by the first guy I met on the street. That made me really want to succeed, and I did.
