 LOVE YOUR WORK

HL NERI

 If you don’t like your work,

You’ll need three times the energy

To force yourself to work

To resist the force

And finally to work.

 

If you love your work,

Your desire to do it

Will be like a wind

To propel your ship

With much less fuel.

 

If you like your work,

You work no more

For work when you like it

Is work no longer

But sheer enjoyment.

 

If you enjoy your work,

You’ll work and work

Without counting the hours

And you’ll reap and enjoy

More earnings as well. :)

The first poem I’ve ever learned to read at age 5 which my mama and papa taught me, and I’d memorized them before.
