7 inspirational quotes about work

What exactly is work?

Well the science of physics offers a definition of course. Essentially it says that it’s the effort required to move a force through a distance.

However that’s not really my point today. I’m talking about work in relation to people. And in that sense work is simply doing stuff for other people in exchange for money.

Ideally you should be doing stuff you enjoy doing because if you enjoy it you’ll do it well and if you do it well you’ll enhance your value over the long term. And if you really enjoy what you’re doing it won’t seem like work at all.

However if you’re doing stuff for just one person, regardless of how much you enjoy it, essentially you’re just trading your time for money.

Now I’m not suggesting that there’s anything wrong with trading your time. After all, that’s the way most people work. However to earn serious money you need to be doing stuff for many people simultaneously. One for many, rather than one for one.

For instance if you write a bestselling book, record a bestselling music album or produce a bestselling DVD these activities can lead to you making serious money. A period of work by you produces a product which potentially gives pleasure to millions.

Starting a business and selling products by the thousand is another way to make serious money.

My underlying message to you today is this; working ‘one-for-one’ can make you a living. Working ‘one-for-many’ can make you a fortune, particularly if you can continue to serve the many whilst you’re sleeping.

Whether it’s becoming a creative person, a performing artist, or starting a business. These are the roads to riches.

It’s never easy of course but it can be done and people do. You could too with a little self-belief.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about work to get you thinking about it.
