A lot of people quit looking for work as soon as they find a job. – Zig Ziglar
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.- Sam Ewing
One of my favorite scenes from Bruce Almighty is when God and Bruce mop the floor together.
Bruce has finally gotten to the end of his rope and goes seeking help, and God gives him a mop and then they mop the floor together. The sheer simplicity of doing some hard, good work together produces clarity of thought and purpose for Bruce.
There is something almost cathartic about doing some plain old fashioned hard work.
Hard work is also one of the keys to creating and transferring value to others (which in turn determines our rewards). Applying hard work to solving the problems of others can be our unique way of delivering value.
Is there something in your life that just needs some good old fashioned hard work?
When can you start?
Make it a great day.
