THE MAN WHO LOVED TO WORK


John Ortberg states:


"Once there was a man who loved to work. He loved creating value. He loved the way his work made him grow. He didn’t always like the problem he ran into, but he felt joy when he came up with a solution that...well, worked. He loved being a part of a team. He managed people and felt it was what he was born to do. He liked getting to know his co-workers: he asked about their lives and families and interests. He loved when a team got inspired about an idea. He loved watching people gain new skills and confidence. He valued the chance to spot each person’s abilities and help them move toward becoming the best version of themselves. He even enjoyed getting ready for work. Sometimes in the shower he would yell, 'Focus!' to himself just to get psyched up. He liked looking ahead at what each day would hold. He enjoyed feeling at the end of the day when he could look back on how he had been productive. He didn’t tell people at his church this, but secretly he felt the presence of God more at work than he did at church services." (The Me I Want to Be, page 217).
