The opposite is also the norm.
One evening last week I collapsed onto the sofa and asked myself a question: Why am I so tired? I had been to two or three meetings which involved walking a total of a few hundred metres.
He gets up early and is on his feet all day — either sorting mail or delivering it door to door, come rain or shine. I have another friend who is a radio engineer. He climbs radio masts to install equipment — again, in all weather.
Compared to these guys, my day had been an absolute doddle. So why on Earth was I so exhausted? I come home from work tired quite a lot of the time. Sometimes I have good days — maybe everything went particularly well — and I come home energised. But mostly I come home tired.
My kids want to play. My wife wants to tell me about her day, maybe discuss some important issues. Business analysis is hard. I used to be a programmer. I loved programming, and still do. I had a think about what makes a good BA.
That requires thinking both logically and creatively and also decision making. Creative thinking I find harder — making ideas appear out of nowhere has no obvious starting point. One of my favourite authors, Douglas Adams, apparently used to take a lot of baths because that was where he had all his best ideas!

As a BA, I need to know the art of the possible. I get the impression that some BAs rely on a technical resource for this. I also need to be a power user of various IT applications — word processors, presentation tools, drawing tools, and even in some cases specialist modelling tools but actually I try to steer clear of these.
I come from a technical background. I got my first smartphone just last week. I have to communicate both at a non-technical level, with the business community, and at a technical level, with architects, developers and testers. On the business side, I have to talk to everyday users, middle managers, senior managers and occasionally CEOs.Parables of Jesus.
