♠ Lenses of WORK

Build a body of work.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
– Thomas A. Edison

People are built to work; even the wealthy must work if they know what is good for their soul.

But what do you really want to do? Do you need to be rewarded to do that work, or would you do it for its own sake?

Who do you work for? Are there people above and below you in a hierarchy of needs and power?  What do you produce and for whom?

Are you honoring the investment that so many other people have made in you? Are you paying back that investment? Do you want to be a leader, and if so, are you prepared to bear the responsibilities of leadership?

Can you delay gratification? Do you have the power to get what you want? Do you know your limits?

Do you love what you do, or do you only love the results? Can you identify how your work benefits others and convince them to see the benefits too? Can you earn a living doing what you do?

And is there anything you would lay down your life for? Is there a war you would fight, or a person you’d sacrifice to save?

Do you do what you say you will do, and is it clear to others what rules you live by? This exploration ends by asking you to commit to integrity.
