To enjoy your work is to love it. If you don’t love what you do, you can’t be happy doing it. Friend, whatever it is that you do for a living, take it seriously. It matters. What you do matters. Take pride in what you do. It does not matter what you do. What matters is you feel about it. What matters is how you are doing your job. What matters is what the job is giving you.
In the words of Marcus Tullius Cicero, “Whatever you do, do it with all your might.” Whether you are a CEO or a cleaner, your job matters. Respect what you do, and you will find happiness in it.
People are not happy with their jobs because they don’t believe in what they are doing. They don’t believe in their jobs. The CEO’s job is not better than yours. If you think so, think again.
If you want to make your own job meaningful, change how you think, see, and do your job. Everything is all about perception. If you think your job is bad, it is bad. If you think your job is the best, it is the best. Make your job the best, and you will enjoy it.
