Working hard, or hardly working?

When I saw this photo, I was reminded of a great philosophy about work. I think the quote goes back to Confucius who said something to the following effect: “Enjoy the work that you do and you will never work a day in your life”. I agree with this type of thinking. I know that not everyone has the privilege of being able to do work that they enjoy, but many people have the possibility within their grasp but choose not to grab it for any number of reasons. Insecurity. Fear. Conformity. Who knows? Well, you do.

I want to occupy my time doing work that I would do even if I wasn’t been paid for it. Pay is a bonus 🙂 I know it’s not always stable or predictable but I flat out refuse to work for 50 weeks in the year so I can spend 2 weeks actually living my life.

Keep it real peeps…
