There I was, pumping gas and minding my own business. The lady at the next pump was talking to the gas station attendant and when they finished their conversation, she said, "Don't work too hard"
What a concept! Don't work too hard. How hard is too hard? Is this becoming a way of life for some? Not to work too hard? I have always prided myself on being a hard worker. Having tasks and goals that, upon completion, give me a sense of satisfaction. If we tell someone not to work too hard, does it become a self fulfilling prophecy?
What if someone said, Work as hard as you can until you drop? Both are extremes and a work ethic is something, I believe cannot be taught. You either have it or you don't. I love it when blog ideas come from everyday life. When i heard this today, I kept playing over and over in my head.
Does the worker who was told not to work too hard finish her day and say, mission accomplished?
Does the lady who said this to her feel that she has done her duty?
When reading this blog, don't think too hard!
