Work defines us in many ways. It shows our skills, abilities, and devotion to our jobs. It also reveals how we feel about our own character.
One of my favorite quotes is from Henry J. Kaiser. “When your work speak for itself, don’t interrupt.” This statement is excellent advice. After all, what else needs to be said when others can judge your work for itself?
If I am unable to describe what I do without attempting to justify it or by trying to build it up, it lacks something. The best indication of our work is what it does for others, or how it contributes to the overall good of the community. If there is any doubt of its worth, perhaps it is not what we think it is.
