unicyclistFeeling moldy at work? Or bored out of your gourd, because you haven’t learned anything new in years?

If so, you might prefer entrepreneurial work where the need to learn new skills is constant.

Entrepreneurs are more likely than other workers to say they learned or did something interesting the day before (71% vs. 66%), Gallup reports.

They also are more likely to report that they enjoyed something the day before than other workers (89% vs. 86%).

These findings are based on a survey of 273,000 adults, ages 18+, conducted between Jan. 2, 2011 and Sept. 30, 2012. They included 6,900 entrepreneurs.

The downside is that entrepreneurs are a bit more likely than other workers to be stressed out or worried.

But that’s not surprising, given that they are more likely than other workers to be uninsured. Plus, they may not know where their next assignment will come from or when that next check will materialize. And, of course, when you’re learning new stuff and don’t know whether you’ll be able to achieve what you aim for, that can be a stressor too.

But it seems like a small price to pay for work that captures your interest, makes time fly by, and helps you grow.
