How To Cope With Our Dead-End job?!
Most of us hate our job , so let’s look at what we can do with this obvious issue
You as a human being have to work
At dawn , when you have trouble getting out of bed , tell yourself: I have to go to work- as a human being. What do I have to complain of. If I’m going to do what I was born for- the things I was brought into the world to do ? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm ?
President, James Garfield, was the janitor of his school, the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute, in 1851. He paid his tuition by persuading his school to let him be the janitor in exchange for tuition. He did the job every day smiling and without a hint of shame . Each morning, he would ring the university’s bell tower to start the classes- and then stomp to class with cheer and eagerness. By his twenty-sixth birthday he was the dean . This is what happens when you do your job- whatever it is- and do it well .
Doing things better than anyone else. Even if it’s sweeping. As Andrew Carnegie famously put it. There’s nothing shameful about sweeping. It’s just another opportunity to excel- and to learn.
Iranian female wushu champions Soheila, Elaheh and Shahrbanou Mansourian are shining in national and international competitions. But behind their smile while standing on international podiums , there’s immense pain and sadness. In fact they have had a difficult life , their father left them while they were still little kids. Shahrbanou, the eldest sister, had to shoulder the burden of earning the family’s livelihood and raising her younger sisters. They came to know wushu by chance . The martial art was not taught in the proximity of Semirom city in the central Iranian province of Isfahan . And because they didn’t have enough money , each day one of them could attend the class and share the lessons with other sisters. On talk show, Shahrbanou told the audience about the days when she had to work at other people’s houses and gardens .
Did Shahrbanou love working at other people’s houses?!
No , for sure.
But she did it in the best possible way.
Meanwhile they were working on their dreams.
She couldn’t wait for a hero to come and solve their problems. It was her responsibility to take action and treat the setbacks in a way as though they are opportunity for growing .
You have to assemble your life yourself , action by action.
Taught by his father- who finished even the back of his cabinets though they would be hidden against the wall - Steve Jobs cared even about the inside of his products, making sure they were beautifully designed even though the users would never see them.
We should do our jobs same way Jobs did : with pride and dedication
Do your job .
Do it well.
