Work Ethic

Are you feeling worn out? An editor of the Atlantic Monthly once told the story of a Harvard University freshman who was late handing in an assignment. He came to his professor’s office to explain. 

“I’m sorry, sir,” he said, “but I wasn’t feeling well.”

The Dean replied, “Young man, please bear in mind that by far the greater part of the world’s work is carried on by people who are not feeling very well.”

Isn’t that the truth? Children are raised because parents are willing to exert enormous amounts of energy. Companies are built because people are willing to work hard. And communities are forged through long hours and persistent dedication.
