Work is fun

Vanity of vanities says the Eclesiastist, whatever that is. Although the very wise have said that living seems to be without point as life will continue as it has continued after your gone who knows whether or not your lifes savings will be inherited by a fool even if you were wise in building them. Perhaps then the best conclusion is that there is no point in doing anything.

However the Eclesiastist also mentioned that there is nothing better than that a person enjoys all their toil. I am currently contemplating the meaning of this and though I might make conjectures I must admit that I do not have all the answers as to what it means or why it means what it means. I would like to say that I do enjoy my work, or rather I work at what I enjoy.

For example I enjoy blogging, I also enjoy self help and improvement. I don't really know if I'm any good at either of these things, but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that I  enjoy them. One time someone asked me why I am such a successful blogger. I'm not quite sure what he meant by that but I do know that since I've started this blog I've been successful at it because I enjoy it. And I consider enjoyment to be success.

One of my great mentors once told me that the key to success in work is to find what you love to do
and to trick someone into paying you to do it. Follow this advice and your well on your way to success and contentment, That is, as long as your measuring stick is one of enjoyment and fun.

Thanks for reading,
