WORK – My daughter asked me a few weeks ago would I stop working if I won Lotto? My response was “I don’t have a job, I have a passion”. As a 16 year old she thought this was hilarious, I thought it was sad she was unable to see the two could go together. I recalled reading this last year and it sums it up.
Work Is Reward Not Punishment
A daily motivation from Max Steingart
Your success in any occupation depends on your enjoyment.
Loving your work makes the difference.
If you enjoy what you do, you’ll be successful.
If you don’t enjoy what you do, you won’t be successful.
Your chances for success are directly proportional to the degree of pleasure you derive from what you do. If you have a job you hate, face the fact squarely and get out. You’ll never achieve real success unless you like what you are doing.
Success in its highest and noblest form calls for peace of mind, enjoyment, and happiness which comes only when you find the work that you like best.
You don’t pay the price for success. You enjoy the price for success.
Work is love made visible.
