Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. I like fun.

Make things better

Don’t postpone your fulfillment or happiness until everything is perfect. Work to create fulfillment and happiness within the world as it is from day to day.

A perfect world is impossible because life is so gloriously diverse. What’s perfect for one person would not be perfect for lots of other people.

Plus, whatever you personally imagine to be a perfect life is little more than a guess. Reality has a way of turning out much differently than your idealized vision of how it might be.

While it’s pretty much impossible to make everything perfect, there is something you’re highly skilled at doing. You can make things better.

You can notice a real problem that exists right now, where you are, and you can work to solve it. You can act on specific opportunities to add new goodness and value to life.

Though no one will ever make life perfect, you can make things better in all sorts of practical and meaningful ways. You can make things better right now, today, tomorrow, every day, and find great fulfillment in doing so.
