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

Making things better

What response will improve the situation? That’s the one to choose.

It’s not enough to claim you care. Merely appearing to make things better is insufficient at best, and perhaps even counterproductive.

Figure out what will bring positive, enduring results. Focus on that course of action.

Hold yourself and your actions to a high standard. Refuse to settle for anything less than effectiveness that provides a clear benefit.

Every circumstance comes with opportunity for improvement. Go through the details until you can find and seize upon a realistic, workable opportunity.

Then put your skills, knowledge, and persistence to work. Make it through the day, the task, the challenge by making things better.

— Ralph Marston
