Hard Work No. 1

Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. (Theodore Roosevelt, 26th U.S. President)

Do you sometimes wonder if this is understood by the younger generation? It seems increasingly difficult to find employees who regard work in this way. Even many who have good jobs are more focused on retirement than giving their best efforts right now. Effective workers are not only gainfully employed but they find satisfaction in a job well done.

I even found great pleasure in hard work, a reward for all my labors. (Ecclesiastes 2:10)

Hard work brings rewards. (Proverbs 12:14)
