How You Accomplish Your WorkWisdom to consider when you think about your work. Be encouraged by this poem to do work that you love. Consider the words of the poets to encourage and motivate you to be the best you can be at whatever profession you choose. A thought about working is that we spend many hours doing this, if you don't enjoy what you are doing you are wasting your life. It is better to love what you do and make less money than to work for the money and hate it. Life is too short!

How you accomplish your work,
Says a lot about who you are.
As many other things can,
Life can be very bizarre.
Do you attack your work,
With confidence that goes for miles?
Or do you approach with fear,
Having trouble tackling the piles?
To have confidence in your work,
Means you are self assured.
You love everything about your job,
And feel very secure.
If you approach with fear,
You're usually not so sure.
The work you do makes you uncomfortable,
And you definitely don't feel secure.
It often makes me wonder,
How people work in jobs they hate.
Sometimes they have no choice,
And other times they sit and wait.
For those who have a choice,
To do the work they love.
Count yourselves very lucky,
And remember to thank above.

Asking "what if this" and "what if that",
No good has ever come.
The questions that these words ask,
Are not as good as some.
"What if" really means the same,
As doubting what you?ve done.
You can't go back and change the past,
What's done is what is done!
"What if" also can be the words,
Spoke of thee unsure.
It's just like those who speak the words,
I'll try, instead of sure.
Saying words of so little power,
Is a wasted pun.
Not to mention the uncertainty,
You share with everyone.
Next time you find the words "what if"
Crossing your mind.
Replace them with more certain words,
Like "we should do" or "we should find".
The worst thing any of us can do is,
Doubt ourselves from the start.
So think about the words you use,
And choose words that make you sound smart.
