Inspirational thought about work and play

Today I offer you an inspirational thought about work and play, with my fondest wish that the New Year 2010 will bring you the joy of doing what you love, and love what you do in your every day activities.

“The person who is a master
in the art of living
makes little distinction between
their work and their play,
their labour and their leisure,
their mind and their body,
their education and their recreation,
their love and their religion.
They hardly know which is which.
They simply pursue their vision of
excellence and grace in whatever they do,
leaving others to decide whether
they are working or playing.
To them, they are always doing both.”

Attributed to a Zen Buddhist text


What is your attitude towards work and play, or do you think, like some people I hear every day, that you work so many hours, you have no time for living?

Here is an example of someone who loves what he does, and does what he loves:

James A. Kitchener Writer says: “I love writing, I love the swift and swing of words as they tangle with human emotion”

Do you love what you do? Do you know someone who inspires you because they do what they love?

With some reflection and some planning, we can all achieve a closer fit between the jobs we do and what we find satisfaction and fulfilment in doing.

Consulting a professional life and business coach may really help you clarify your values and beliefs and point you towards finding more satisfaction and meaning in your life.
