While I understand the principle, in practice it is somewhat problematic. I rarely feel “HELL YES!” about marking my students’ assessments, particularly when the work is coming at me in tidal-wave sized bundles. Nevertheless, it has to be marked appropriately and with some degree of engagement. Nor do I get excited about washing the dishes: but they do not get done by themselves. Productive and enjoyable are occasionally two different concepts.
