Sometimes I wonder. People say work sucks. Of course work sucks. That’s why it’s called work. You have other words for the fun things you do. Or love.
But it also depends on the way you look at things, no? Your work I mean. Whatever it is. You look at other people’s work and say, “Wow, that’s a work of art.”
How come other people’s work can be a work of art?
What have you been doing wrong? Let me suggest this.
It’s what you expect work to deliver. It’s you not accepting that the discovery of your passions and motivation is a beautiful process, not a painful one. It’s you expecting a single leap to career heaven. Not knowing it’s the rites of passage that will elevate you there.
How can you master the art of work?
