Enjoying Your Job

  Do you like your work? The ancient philosopher Aristotle said “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” When we enjoy our work we do it better than the one who does not. And, great satisfaction is found when our gifts and talents are put into action. If our purpose on earth is […]
