A Job Well Done

There are plenty of ways to measure our work. Volume, quality, quantity, we’re never short on metrics. I think the best way to evaluate how you’re doing on the job is by the sense of accomplishment you carry away.

External factors always dominate, but your personal pride is a wonderful barometer. Do you feel like you’ve done a job well done? Have you contributed your best work, your best ideas, and your best efforts to your team’s common goal?

Work is an important component of human dignity. It’s the ability to use your knowledge, skills, and abilities in a diversified economy to improve the lives of others. No matter what your role is in the division of labor, if you’ve done your best work and helped others, then that’s a job well done.
