Work is Contractual; Effort is Personal

Feb 20, 2005

While checking my emails, I ran across an interesting article on work vs. effort. (Thanks, Pete!)

Punchline was this: work is contractual; effort is personal.

Volunteerism is all personal effort. So, for me, it's a no brainer that personal effort work is infinitely better than contractual work. But personal effort comes with baggage -- personal laziness and personal ego. Lot of volunteers slack off and those that don't are generally stuck in their egos; and the only way to counter that is a strong base of spirituality.
