The Meaning of “Work”

The Meaning of “Work”

When I lived in New Jersey, I would take a Pan Am helicopter from Newark to LaGuardia or Kennedy, fly to Montreal or Toronto, conduct business and sales calls, then return to New York, take the chopper back to Jersey, and drive home in time for a late dinner with my wife.

Today, I hear people whining that a buyer is a 3-hour drive away.

To quote my Hall of Fame colleague Larry Winget, they call it “work” for a reason. And I preferred that life to the airline ticket people slaving away at their shifts every day, or the taxi drivers waiting hours for fares, and even the people in the offices I visited in their 9-to-5 prison routines.

What are you going to do at home, grow roots?
