Some of us are lucky to enjoy our work (at least most of the time…) for others, work is just a means to and end. And then we have labours of love.
The charioteer in Sintra shows the amazing views of the town, needing a bit of a rest, but he is also an entertainer. The Beefeaters in the Tower of London are incredible communicators, with extensive knowledge of the tower’s history. They keep their audience interested and engaged. The stall people at Osaka Castle need to turn the local street food delicacy (Osaka balls) very quickly to avoid burning, often in very difficult conditions.
And art. The process of creating something new.
In all of them, there was a sense of doing their work well, with pride but also with immense pleasure.
