Working on work that is important to you…
I do not respect this guy or this gal so I do not need to work to impress them. I can do the work I want to work on and what I want to do. If I am NOT doing the work I want to do, then I should be disappointed in myself. I am not disappointed right now because I am writing and that is the work what I want to do.
Even better If I had a guitar in my hands. I would play it and this would be like cream and peaches to my work I am doing – writing + guitar = important work to me.
I am writing on a Friday. So yeah… you could say life is good for me.
I am not comparing my salary to Bob.
I am not comparing my worth to Sally.
I am not comparing my hours of office time to Joseph.
I am not comparing my beliefs to Oswaldo.
I am not putting together a program that is pointless to me but what someone else wants.
I am not working to impress you or someone else.
Work on work that is important to you. Do not work on work that is not important to you. It is that simple. Explain to people why their work is not important to you. Tune them out like you would tune out an ease dropper at a coffee shop. Smile, be nice and go back to your cup of joe because their chatter is not important to you.
Work on the work that is important to you. It is that clear. Not easy but clear in what you have to do to work on work that is important to you.
