work.

“The world of my work is changing, and my professional identity, direction and security are unsettled.

It seems discouraging to think of all the time and effort I have invested. It seems like a sacrifice. Perhaps I can begin to understand the original meaning of the word: “to make sacred”.

Perhaps this is a sacred passage in which my insecurity is sacrificed for trust in whatever is to come.

As one form dissolves, another takes its place. My work now is to seek and to recognize a new form that will provide the opportunity for growth and reward.” – Noela N. Evans

“One source of frustration in the workplace is the frequent mismatch between what people must do and what
people can do. When what they must do exceeds their capabilities, the result is anxiety. When what they must do falls short of their capabilities,
the result is boredom. But when the
match is just right, the results can be glorious. This is the essence of flow.” – Daniel H. Pink

“Whatever you make, base it upon that which is most important to you. Only then will it have depth and meaning, and only then will it resonate with others.” – Christopher Paolini

“I often think about dogs when I think about work and retirement. There are many breeds of dog that just need to be working, and useful, or have a job of some kind, in order to be happy. Otherwise they are neurotically barking, scratching, or tearing up the sofa. A working dog needs to work. And I am a working dog.” – Martha Sherrill

“Imagine that you are stuck on a long train ride and must choose one of two books to read in order to pass the time: the first is a novel whose main character is an office worker who is essentially working to pay his monthly cable bill; the second is about someone who decides to travel in South America (and of course encounters various setbacks in the process), but who pushes beyond the boundaries of conventional American life. Which… book would you pick up to read? Indeed, which of the two characters would you rather be?” – Mark Thompson
