Why invest in taking pride in your work?

Why invest in taking pride in your work? It’s all in the mind…is the work that we are doing too small or too menial…or is there another way to add value and look at it differently…a touching story of a child’s perspective on his work.


A small boy was auditioning with his classmates for a school play.

His mother knew that he’d set his heart on being in the play – just like all the other children hoped too – and she feared how he would react if he was not chosen.

On the day the parts were awarded, the little boy’s mother went to the school gates to collect her son.

The little lad rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement. “Guess what Mum,” he shouted, and then said the words that provide a lesson to us all, “I’ve been chosen to clap and cheer.”
