The best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing. – Teddy Roosevelt
We can acquire wealth and possessions.
We can earn titles and gain power.
We can travel the world and lay on the beach.
Life can’t simply be about buying things and going places. Life must be about our purpose . . . about leaving worthy evidence of our time, effort, and dedication.
I couldn’t imagine coming to work each day simply as a means to retirement when I get to do nothing. I don’t have a passion for excellence so I can stop doing what I love when I get old.
Why do you do what you do? Is the work you are doing, worth doing? If not, how can you bring worth to your work. How can you live your life claiming the prize day after day?
