Love your Work


Love your work
With all your heart
Don't you shirk
And work in part
Don't expect a perk
Else you'll go berserk.

Love your work
With all your heart
Make it your favourite
It should your intelligence merit
It is a timeless secret
Like a diamond of high carat.

Love your work
With all your heart
You'll find it rewarding
When intellectually challenging
It'll keep your spirits high
And to have a long happy life thereby.

    If you work without love, you are working like a slave. When you work with love, your work like a emperor. You work is your Joy - Osho (Report) Reply

    If you don't have a job that's intellectually challenging then a job that's physically challenging is next best thing as at least it will keep you fit. A thoughtful, interesting poem. (Report) Reply

    A great philosophy, but most people dislike their jobs if they are mundane. To do a worthwhile and satisfying job is what we all desire. (Report) Reply

    If you don't love your work, quit! Find an occupation that excites you everyday and only reluctantly you leave at the end of the day. After all work is the only thing that will bring you a sense of satisfaction for a lifetime. (Report) Reply
