Labor Day

In her blog post in honor of Labor Day, Teresa Amabile, Harvard Business School’s expert on creativity, started with the following quotation:

Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
Theodore Roosevelt, September 7, 1903

Most significantly she writes of the importance of finding the value to others in what you do. The most un-glamorous work can have this dimension if you look for it.

It is your responsibility to find this rather than only wishing yourself elsewhere.

What do you give that is special in your work?
