Proverbs 22:1 (NKJV) A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, Loving favor rather than silver and gold.
In our workplaces character is essential, Why? For starters, no job is perfect, and that means that your job isn’t perfect, either. So, from time to time, you’ll probably become upset with your job, and it is during these times, when you’re frustrated or upset, that you’ll be tempted to gripe, to waste time, and to do little else. Avoid these temptations they’re self-destructive.
Even if you’re planning on quitting your job tomorrow, give your boss a full day’s work today. Otherwise, you’ll be developing a very bad habit: the habit of giving less than 100%. It’s a character- sabotaging trait, an easy habit to acquire and a difficult habit to get free of.
If you’re looking for folks to waste time with, you can probably find them just about anywhere, including your workplace. But if you’re looking for a meaningful life (not to mention a career that you love), make up your mind to be the kind of person whose work speaks (in meaningful terms) for itself. When you do, you’ll discover that when you give your best, you enjoy work the most.
