Today’s Hump Day Quote Day theme is Work Ethic. You can check out last week’s theme, Teamwork, here. Next week’s quote theme will be Imagination.
Definition of Work Ethic: A set of values based on the moral virtues of hard work and diligence.
I’ve always loved this old war propaganda poster of Rosie the Riveter, which tried to get women out into the workforce while their men were out on the battlefields.
“The Devil finds work for idle hands.”
“If a task has once begun.
Never leave it till it’s done.
Be the labor great or small.
Do it well or not at all.”
“We have too many people who live without working, and we have altogether too many who work without living.”
“Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
“Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.”
“The object of living is work, experience, happiness. There is joy in work. All that money can do is buy us someone else’s work in exchange for our own. There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.”
“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”

What do you think? Does good work ethic come naturally to you or is it something you’ve had to struggle with? Do you enjoy your job?
