Hats, helmets and hardhats off to the workforce!
Whether we work 9 to 5, part time, graveyard, freelance, or own our own Fortune 500 company, we really do clock in and out. Every moment we’re driving to work, driving a nail, answering email, courting a client, or just daydreaming about an invention, we are “clocked in.”
And every moment we are “clocked in” we are adding to the value of somebody’s existence, whether through a product, a profession, or serving a blue plate special (like my mom did, and always with a smile).
If you are “clocked out” this weekend, enjoy the Labor Day festivities. And if you are working, know that your contribution to what makes this country tick is truly appreciated.
Work, work, work
Every single thing I’m touching, looking at or listening to right now was made by someone, or most likely hundreds of people, who traded their time, talent, expertise, and hard labor for a paycheck.
I love what I do for “work.” Designing logos, books, ads and packaging; brainstorming with clients; and the thrill of seeing the first piece off the press is more exciting than an exotic vacation (sometimes just as expensive when there’s a typo).
I hope you enjoy what you do, whatever it is. If you don’t, do something else. We do have that choice. If you need some inspiration please contact me. I am grateful that I get to enjoy the earning part of earning a living, and I’m happy to share how it’s possible for anyone else.
I love work so much, in fact, I’m going to work on my tan at the pool this Labor Day weekend.
Happy Labor Day!
