How do you define hard work? How hard do you work?
As media reps and managers, we don’t typically describe what we do as “labor” in every sense of the word. Nonetheless, what we do is laborious.
One definition of labor is, “productive activity, especially for the sake of economic gain”. If you’re in sales, we hope that you are doing it because of the great potential for economic gain.
Another definition is, “physical or mental work, especially of a hard or fatiguing kind; toil”. While you’re probably not getting blisters, and the work we do is not physically toiling on your body, the task we perform oftentimes leaves you mentally shot at the end of a day. These last five and a half months has certainly taken its toll on everyone in one form or another.
This weekend, celebrate yourself for what you do and what you do for your customers and the economy. But, also celebrate those that make it possible for us to do what we do; the first responders (our police, firemen and women), those that work in the factories and fields, in the offices, retail stores, truck drivers, linemen, service and medical professionals, the stay-at-home moms, and dads.
More importantly, this weekend and always, celebrate and appreciate everyone, regardless of their political party and views, regardless of the color of their skin or the religion they choose to believe in.
This Labor Day, let’s celebrate us… all of us!
