Passion for excellence towards your work is important because your work is going to fill a major portion of your life. Unfortunately not all of us end up doing what we really love doing, hence we don’t do a great Job at work and succeed in life. The only way to do great job is to believe that you are doing a great job. If you are not doing what you love doing then don’t settle go out and find what you truly love doing. Your passion will connect you to the purpose of life and it will one day become your profession. People with great passion can make the impossible happen. Passion is oxygen of the soul. Its a burning desire that will not let you settle for anything less. Lets look at the short story about Passion at Work.
It was a hot sunny afternoon and a woman was walking down a deserted street with shopping bags in her hand and she noticed a group of laborers breaking stones and cutting them…..Curious to know what they are doing she walked up to one of them and asked – what are you doing? He replied – can‘t you see, I am breaking stones???
The woman was not satisfied, she walked ahead and asked another laborer – what are you doing. The laborer replied – can‘t you see, I am cutting stones to build a building.
Still not satisfied, finally the woman walked a little farther and saw another man and asked him – what are you doing? He replied – I am cutting stones, so that these can be used to build the world‘s tallest church…. He was passionate about his work. He know the purpose of cutting the stones and this purpose is connected to his passion, hence he enjoys his work when compared to earlier two cases.
The woman was very happy that she finally found her answer.
