Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
What if your work could be your ultimate platform? … your ultimate channel for your growth and greatness?
We spend a lot of time at work.
For some people, work is their ultimate form of self-expression.
For others, work is a curse.
Nobody stops you from using work as a chance to challenge yourself, to grow your skills, and become all that you’re capable of.
But that’s a very different mindset than work is a place you have to go to, or stuff you have to do.
When you change your mind, you change your approach. And when you change your approach, you change your results. But rather than just try to change your mind, the ideal scenario is to expand your mind, and become more resourceful.
You can do so with quotes.
In fact, you can actually build your “work intelligence.”
Here are a few ways to think about “intelligence”:
In Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, says, “intelligence is the ability to make finer distinctions.” And, Tony Robbins, says “intelligence is the measure of the number and the quality of the distinctions you have in a given situation.”
If you want to grow your “work intelligence”, one of the best ways is to familiarize yourself with the best inspirational quotes about work.
By drawing from wisdom of the ages and modern sages, you can operate at a higher level and turn work from a chore, into a platform of lifelong learning, and a dojo for personal growth, and a chance to master your craft.
You can use inspirational quotes about work to fill your head with ideas, distinctions, and key concepts that help you unleash what you’re capable of.
To give you a giant head start and to help you build a personal library of profound knowledge, here are two work quotes collections you can draw from:

As you can see, there are lots of ways to think about work and what it means. At the end of the day, what matters is how you think about it, and what you make of it. It’s either an investment, or it’s an incredible waste of time. You can make it mundane, or you can make it matter.
Here’s another surprise about work. You can use work to live the good life. According to Martin Seligman, a master in the art and science of positive psychology, there are three paths to happiness:
In The Pleasant Life, you simply try to have as much pleasure as possible. In The Good Life, you spend more time in your values. In The Meaningful Life, you use your strengths in the service of something that is bigger than you are.
There are so many ways you can live your values at work and connect your work with what makes you come alive.
There are so many ways to turn what you do into service for others and become a part of something that’s bigger than you.
If you haven’t figured out how yet, then dig deeper, find a mentor, and figure it out.
You spend way too much time at work to let your influence and impact fade to black.
