Enjoy whatever you do
If I ask you, “Do you enjoy yourself when you are doing something,
for example, do you enjoy your office work? Do you enjoy your day to day
life? Do you enjoy your weekend?” you may have several answers. Some may
say “Yes of course we enjoy”. Some may say “Well, depending on the
situation that we are in we enjoy.”
Ask any person what he/she would be like doing. He or she would
generally answer that, instead of doing routine chores, like ironing,
cooking food, or paying bills, or filing papers or de-cluttering house,
or cleaning or dusting house, he or she would prefer to relax, or watch
a movie, or read something interesting.
Anyway, as far as I know, if you don’t enjoy whatever you do, you
won’t be successful with the particular work. And hence we must choose
the things that we enjoy or we must see the better part of the things
that we do and try to enjoy!
Most of us enjoy being with our families. But I am not sure that most
of you enjoy yourself at your working places. If you are to be
successful in your profession then you must make your working
environment just like your home. We have to see the better half of
everything. Just concentrate on the good things that you do and enjoy!
You may make friends, you may make jokes, you may think out of the box
to make your working environment, a home like place.
It is a very natural and legitimate desire. However, whatever we may
wish, the fact remains, that routine tasks need to be done, it is the
routine and regularity, which gives content and meaning to our life. The
skill lies in making the same interesting and enjoying doing. Whatever
we have to do, or are doing.
Leading an organized life will enable you take pleasure in the
activities of your family, friends and enjoy your favourite activity or
activities. One of the ways you can make your essential and work-related
tasks enjoyable is to mix them with some activity, which takes away
We notice that any task, if it is regularly done, it will become
routine. Routine work will be boring. While doing routine tasks, you can
talk to your children or other family members. You can listen to music,
watch funny videos and so on. There are endless ways in which you can
take the tedium out of dreadful tasks.
Some people become slaves of their moods and their life swings,
between one extreme and another. However, downbeat and depressing
emotions can lead to obsessive patterns of negative behavior and serious
wastefulness and ineptitude. For this purpose, it is essential to have
adequate rest and sleep, may be a minimum of seven to eight hours sleep
a night. This enables us to work better.
From my own experience I can say, that I am at my best, when I have
some intervals between works. It aids concentration. And also I enjoy my
spare time, doing what I like; for example, compering, writing, playing
and watching cricket and so on. Growth tasks should not be pushed to the
bottom of the barrel.
There should be a necessary balance, between the two, as both have an
important role in our life, one for short-term and the other for
long-term. Your effort should be, to have growth approach, so that you
can move ahead, to still higher levels in life.So, we must enjoy
whatever we do and do whatever you enjoy; otherwise we may have sorrow
at the end of the day. Think twice..! This statement looks like
controversial; but it has a meaning!
