Working to feel “Good”

Hard work use to be a virtue. But in today’s society, the least amount of work appears to be the norm. We see our coworkers on their mobile device when their supervisors are not present. There is no motivation to excel. We see this in our school system, and in our government. Work appears just a way to earn money. Should work mean more?

In Japanese, work is hataraku. Hata means the people around; raku translates into comfortable. To work means to make others comfortable. When we work hard, our supervisors and co-workers are comfortable. We are bringing joy to others. As opposed to malingering and complaining at work. It makes everyone else feel uncomfortable.

Bringing joy to others by working hard may bring upon God’s blessings. One may become spirited, and full of positive energy. If you dread going into work every day, try to work harder, and help others. This may ironically make you enjoy your work, and become spirited and happy.
