Work is a four-letter word, which typically has a negative connotation; not so if you love what you do for a living. I do love my work, most of the time. There are days when I feel overwhelmed and can't seem to focus as well. In general, though, I don't feel like I'm W-O-R-King per se; I tend to think I'm being a productive, creative, and helpful part of society, and it gives me a good deal of satisfaction.
The days I go home feeling defeated are those when I perceive I've spun my wheels and have gotten nothing done. I love to check items off my list. Yet I realize those hours and hours of toil and effort are not wasted. They are necessary for tomorrow's tasks to get done and for our goals to be met.
So, how do you feel about your W-O-R-K? Is it what drives you to pride and satisfaction or to dread and frustration? Is it part of your nature and one thing in your life that brings you joy, or it simply a means to an end...a paycheck?
Since the pandemic hit, many have been out of work. Some still are. There have been several who have decided to take their hobby and make it a business. We have had a major surge in new businesses opening up in Chattooga County. Their reason, for the most part, is that they found an opportunity to chase their dream and live out their passion. They don't want to "W-O-R-K" anymore. Taking that plunge is challenging, but the motive is a strong determination to see it through.
I applaud all of you who have landed that dream job, who have taken things into your own hands, AND who are W-O-R-King for a living. For those who are struggling to make ends meet, without work, and in need of guidance, please give me a call. I want to help. It's what I do, and I love it!
