Work Like You Don’t Need the Money

I got to thinking about what that means, to “work like you don’t need the money”? To me, it means to be:

       Fearless. You’re not worried about losing your job, so you work with courage and conviction.

       Passionate. You’re working because you like it so you’re likely to have fire and enthusiasm.

       Confident. Your value is tied to knowledge and hard work.

       Positive. You find reasons to like and enjoy work and it’s obvious by the smile on your face. 

Those are high standards and I hope you are fortunate enough to meet them because I believe they are also the keys to success and happiness.

Now, if my wife will just let me “dance as if nobody’s watching”. . .


Shameless plug for our business:

Over the last couple of years we have been outfitting our sales reps and executives with Cutter & Buck shirts embroidered with our company logo. We are crazy about the shirts because they are well made, fit great, and have lots of little touches that improve wearability and longevity. Try Cutter & Buck and you won’t wear anything else.
