QUOTE - "Work Is Not Play......"
There's the old line that goes like this - find a job you like and you'll never work a day in your life. OK, sounds good and some of that is true. We all should be so lucky to have a job that we are passionate about, as that is a great gift to give to yourself. We should all love our careers, and I find myself fortunate to do something I love everyday. I sincerely hope you make a living practicing your passion.
But with that said, work is still - work. I was taught too, work before play. It still requires effort, and dedication. And the field you have chosen still is due the respect it deserves. Can we have fun while working? Of course we can and should. But in the end, we want to be the best we can for those around us, who are in it with us, that we work for, and for whom the product is intended. But you may have noticed as you walk through the world that is not always the case.
I heard once from a wise woman I worked with years ago, knuckle down and work hard young, and put yourself on the best path for later. Good words. And after all these years of morning radio, I am proud of virtually every day of it. There are days better than others, but I am proud of the effort and where my heart is every day. I didn't know all those years ago that would be as important to me as it is.
True, work is not play, but the play that follows a job well done, is the best play of all.
