My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who work and those who take the credit.  He told me to try to be in the first group; there was less competition there.

Indira Gandhi


I wasn’t feeling particularly good about work this morning, but I talked to a friend and he said to try the thing that worked for a person that he had had the pleasure of working with in his prior life as a social worker.  Stop what you are doing, get away from the line; pump your fists in the air and chant:

Work is good!
Work is fun!
Run!  Run!  Run!

Thanks Paul for the helpful words of encouragement!


Work is of two kinds: first, altering the position of matter at or near the Earth’s surface relative to other matter; second, telling other people to do so.

Bertrand Russell

And in the 21st Century altering the position of electrons became popular as a work activity.
