How to Work

Work for Work’s sake, do not care for name or fame. Though you work for work’s sake, let your work product provides the definition for perfect and reflects your signature. Have passion for your work but don’t have it more. The less passion there is, the better we work. The calmer we are, the better for us, and more the amount of work we can do.

It is the worker who is attached to results that grumbles about the nature of the duty which has fallen to his lot; to the unattached worker all duties are equally good. Even the greatest fool can accomplish a task if it be after his heart. But the intelligent man is he who can convert every work into one that suits his taste. No work is petty. Everything in this world is like a banyan seed which though appearing as tiny has yet the gigantic banyan tree latent within it. He indeed is intelligent who notices this and succeeds in making all work truly great.

You should work like a master and not as a slave. The man who works through freedom and love cares nothing for results. But the slave wants his whipping; the servant wants his pay. A master will never works for pride. Work like a master; then money will work for you.

“Master never works for pride”
