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

It is your responsibility to find this rather than only wishing yourself elsewhere.
What do you give that is special in your work?
