8 Quotable Quotes ~ Passion & Hard Work


With Valentine's Day around the corner, this inaugural post focuses on the heart: what is it that drives you at work? What's at the heart of your daily "grind"? Maybe you do a lot of behind the scenes work that keep operations running smooth or you're constantly improving process and procedures. Whatever it may be, think about what motivates you and keep focus on these things that you love not just now but at the forefront of each day. This focus will ultimately help guide you through challenges and keep perspective on what is important to you. This collection of related quotes has always been helpful for me.
