Pleasure in Work

“When we find pleasure in our work, we see how jobs and tasks, even ones that are challenging or difficult, can be done with purpose and engagement. Work, a necessary component of life, has the potential for both ecological responsibility and a sense of dignity. Finding pleasure in our work guides us in two ways: it helps us recognize personal work that is inspiring, gratifying, and productive; and it helps us humanize any workplace we find ourselves in.”
– Alice Waters
