Do the best you can, to achieve the most you can, with what you have.
What’s great about work is it develops us. By its very nature, we are challenged. We learn more and more about ourselves, things like determination, responsiveness, accountability, problem-solving, and self-control to name a few.
What we learn when we work can serve us in other areas of life too. For instance, problem-solving is a skill that can be utilized in relationships, hobbies, health, etc.
Another aspect to think about is that work has a greater purpose. No matter what we are doing, whether it’s delivering mail, bagging groceries, or managing others, work helps others.
While not every job is enjoyable or motivating, it’s important to note that the work we do, lives on in the people we serve. I’m not just talking about customers, but those in your own life – your family, friends, and yourself.
Maybe the work that you are doing doesn’t motivate you. Use your lifestyle as your motivation to work. Think about the lifestyle you want for yourself, your family, your friends and figure out what steps you need to take to implement the things that you want.
Like the quote says, make each day your masterpiece.
