The best achievers in life are NOT workaholics, they are “workafrolics.” They enjoy what they do, they are invigorated by it, and enthralled by the daily challenge. Sure, not every day is a piece of cake and not every task is equally rewarding; in every life a little rain must fall and in every job there is a bit of drudge. Yet the most successful find a way to make a game out of what must be done or find a bit of silver lining in every cloud.
This is not Pollyanna thinking, this is a serious key to life. If you do not like what you do, then find something you do like or learn to love what you do. Life is too wonderful to give anything but your best and you will never be happy sacrificing your gifts.
– Work with people you like and respect, and you will look forward to every day.
– Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.

“I love to work. Work for me is pleasure, happiness. So I work 90% of the time and sleep the rest. I don’t go on vacation. That is not what gives me pleasure. Work gives me pleasure.” — Eve Ensler, award-winning playwright of the “The Vagina Monologues”
