When the task is draining you

If you resent the work, you won’t do it very well, and besides, your resentment gains you nothing. What’s the point of that?

If you avoid the work, you make it more difficult when you eventually have to do it. That’s not such a great plan.

When you do the work halfheartedly, you’re using up your time but wasting an opportunity. Instead, put full attention and enthusiasm into it, and seize the opportunity to excel at it.

When you feel like the task is draining you, it’s not the task that’s doing the draining. It’s your attitude.

Improve your attitude, and you immediately improve the way you feel about what you’re doing. Improve your attitude, and the work flows much more smoothly.

No matter what you’re doing, you might as well do it in a positive frame of mind. It’s your time, it’s your work, it’s your life experience, so make the choice to make it your best.

— Ralph Marston
