STOP AND THINK – Happiness is the real sense of fulfillment that comes from hard work. (Joseph Barbaras, Italian-American animator, director, and producer)

When you have done your work only half-heartedly, you never have a real sense of accomplishment. You know you could have done better. But when you really work hard at a task—especially a difficult one, you gain a sense of completion and satisfaction. That may be as close to happiness as you can come in your work life.

All hard work brings a profit (Proverbs 14:23). You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you (1 Thessalonians 4:11).
