Love Your Work

One of the timeless secrets to a long, happy life is to love your work. The golden thread running through the lives of history’s most satisfied people is that they all loved what they did for a living. When psychologist Vera John Steiner interviewed one hundred creative people, she found they all had one thing in common: an intense passion for their work. Spending your days doing work that you find rewarding, intellectually challenges and fun will do more than all the spa vacations in the world to keep your spirits high and your heart engaged. Thomas Edison, a man who recorded 1,093 patents in his lifetime, ranging from the phonographs, the incandescent light bulb and the microphone to the movies, had this to say about his brilliant career at the end of his life, “I never did a day’s work in my life: it was all fun.”
   When you love your job, you discover you will never have to work another day in your life. Your work will be play and the hours will slip away as quickly as they came. As novelist James Michener wrote:

The master in the art of living makes little distinction

between his work and his play, his labor and his
leisure, his mind and his body, his information and
his recreation, his life and his religion. He hardly
knows which is which. He simply pursues his
vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving
others to decide whether he is working or playing.
To him, he is always doing both.
