Ripples #850: Happy Laboring!
Sep 7, 2015


In order that people may be happy in their work, these three things are needed: they must be fit for it; they must not do too much of it; and they must have a sense of success in it.
-John Ruskin, shared by Shannon in Santa Margarita, CA


If you don’t give your all, the best you have to give, you may be cheating someone else. But there’s no doubt you’ll be cheating yourself of the reward that goes along with knowing you’ve done your best.
-Wallace, shared by Ryan in Lewiston, ID


Many of us in the US & Canada are wrapping up the last holiday weekend of the summer. Labor/Labour Day was initially created to “honor contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country” (see wikipedia for more info:, but it has become the last hurrah of summer before students and their instructors dive into school and the rest of us focus on work, work, work until the winter holidays arrive in November and December.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and be ready to hop up tomorrow and unleash your best work. The world urgently needs your unique talent and it helps if you remember that always. Happy Laboring!
