Your tasks and chores may appear meaningless, common or mundane, never ending – a runaway train on the rails. We can make them special, however, by envisioning them as fruitful, necessary and giving.
Give your best self to your career or sail away to a different shore. For, example, my first paying job was in Argentina. I packaged and stored fruitcakes in a hot bakery. With other temporary, part-time working women we stacked the holiday goodies in the warehouse’s floor to ceiling shelves. I toiled for mere pennies yet I took pride in showing I could keep up with the careful, skillful packagers and the fastest stockers.
It is in the striving and exertion, not the dividend, that we sense and grasp our worth. In other words, we profit from giving our best in all of our transactions.
