“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”
We all have had jobs that are simply no fun.
I was hired once to disassemble and clean a dozen urinals at a summer camp. I’ve dumped out hot tar on flat roofs in 100 degree weather. I’ve shoveled out chicken coops. I’ve had to sort, staple, fold and stuff thousands of letters. I’ve had to cold call sales. I’ve gone door to door.
For some, they will never have a job that they really enjoy. Thus, the frustration of the modern worker.
Is there a better way? Does every job have to fun? Or is there a way to “power through” the dirty work that we have to do?
