Make your work easier

What is difficult and what is easy? Very often, it’s nothing more than a matter of your perception and your attitude.

When you decide that something is difficult, you’re sending a message to yourself that you expect to struggle with it. And whatever you expect, you are indeed likely to get.

What usually makes something difficult is your reluctance to do it. Even the most complex challenge can seem relatively easy when you’re sincerely enjoying yourself as you work your way through it.

The way to make your work easier is not by avoiding it or resenting it. The way to make your work easier is by embracing it with gratitude and enthusiasm.

Imagine how truly dangerous and grueling daily life would have been if you had lived a few thousand years ago. Look at your tasks for today from that perspective, and you’ll be thankful for the opportunity to be doing them.

Choose an attitude that will make your work not only easier, but also more effective, creative and purposeful. Feel great about what you’re doing, and what you’re doing will surely and reliably bring great things.

— Ralph Marston
