Early To Bed
I Know one man who says he likes
work it fascinates him.
He says he Can sit and watch it for hours.
He was probably the same guy who
went to his supervisor to ask for a
"I am alrady planning on giving you a raise, She said
Oh great" he said — When will it be effective?
As soon as you are’ shouted the boss
(Do you know that man ?)
Someone said "Find a job that you love and you’ll never work a day
in your life.
Some people are fortunate enough to be able to find a job they love
But not everyone can follow their bliss into the maeketplace
I’ve had jobs where my motto was
closer to "Early to bed and early to
Rise , till you make enough money to do otherwise.
I had to decide to at least try to like
what I do since i did not find myself
doing What I liked.
There are benefits to learning to enjoy at least parts of what we do
If we can’t do what we love
It stands to reason that the more
Pleasure we find in our work , the more effective and successful we
And usually we will make money
But mainly who wants to spend a life dreading to climb out the bed every
Ony to spend the rest of the day watching the clock tick off
Endless minutes and hours ?
Can you concentrate more on the
aspects of your work that you enjoy ?
Can you find ways to develop nurturing relationship in your,
Can you remember why you are working to educate your Children or to Save for retirement ?
Can you see yourself less as
Chipping stones and more as building a Temple in other words can you see the big picture of what tou do all day ?
Are there ways you can serve others in your work environment ?
All of these techniques
And others can help you learn to find more enjoyment at work.
It was the mystic Kahil Gibran who put it this way.
Work is love Made visble.
And if you canot work with love
but only with Distaste it is better that you should leave your work and sit at The gate of the temple and ask for alms of those who work with joy.
If you can’t do what you love All of the time.
Can you learn to Enjoy what you do
More of the time?
