work

A Quote by Abraham Hicks on well-being, action, vibration, and work

Hard work is not the path to Well- Being. Feeling good is the path to Well-Being. You don't create through action; you create through vibration. And then, your vibration calls action from you. 

Abraham Hicks

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on work, workplace, pleasant, caring, and engaged

Fact is, the work place to a great extent is "where we live." We need star accountants. Boffo saleswomen. Over-the-top creatives in marketing and new product development. And so on. But, since we're effectively talking about "where we live," good sense and good business and "good" engagement throughout the "supply chain," from vendor's vendor to customer's customer, we would benefit mightily—including on the P & L—if we insisted (!) on: "Pleasant." "Caring." "Engaged."

Tom Peters (1942 -)

A Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb on work, luck, and serendipity

Hard work will get you a professorship or a BMW. You need both work and luck for a Booker, a Nobel or a private jet.

A Quote by Shrimati Indira Gandhi on work and credit

My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.

A Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi on hope, work, endeavour, faith, and negotiation

I think by now I have made it fairly clear that I am not very happy with the word "hope." I don't believe in people just hoping. We work for what we want. I always say that one has no right to hope without  endeavor, so we work to try and bring about the situation that is necessary for the country, and we are confident that we will get to the negotiation table at one time or another. This is the way all such situations pan out-- even with the most truculent dictator.

A Quote by Fred Kofman on business, conscious business, conscious capitalism, and work

What would a conscious business environment look like?

The most significant observation would be the total absence of abuse,shame,and threat. People would take responsibility for their behavior and deal with each other honestly and respectfully. They would hold themselves and each other accountable for adhering to some set of agreed-upon values and for working toward an agreed-upon vision. Deviations and errors would be an opportunity for learning and growth,rather than an excuse for blame and punishment.

There would still be problems,people that don’t get along,and losses. A conscious business environment is not a Garden of Eden where everything is always blissful. The marketplace is a turbulent place with no guarantees of success. The main difference displayed by a conscious business environment is that in addition to the drive to achieve their goals,people would experience also the commitment to operate according to their values. This commitment is the source of unconditional dignity that would give the organization and its members a core of luminosity from which to extend into the world.

A conscious business environment would be a challenge,an invitation to develop people’s physical,emotional,mental,and spiritual spheres. The conscious organization is a crucible where people refine themselves through service and partnership. As Khalil Gibran would say,a conscious business is a place where it becomes obvious that work is “love made visible.”

A Quote by Tim Ferriss on work and relationship

Do not expect work to fill a void that non-work relationships and activities should
Work is not all of life. Your co-workers shouldn’t be your only friends. Schedule life and defend it just as you would an important business meeting. Never tell yourself “I’ll just get it done this weekend.”

Tim Ferriss

A Quote by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee on llewellyn vaughan-lee, oneness, spirituality, people, wisdom, truth, sufism, work, consciousness, feminine, and divine feminine

As this era of masculine dominance comes to an end and a feminine understanding of life’s wholeness is included, we are beginning to experience a different world in which physical, mental, and spiritual well-being are interdependent. We see the signs of this in the new age movement. But the new age movement is often limited by its focus on individual well-being. Our real concern is the well-being of the planet and the whole of humanity. Central to this is the understanding that the physical world cannot be healed from a solely physical perspective, but requires a shift to an attitude that contains a multi-dimensional approach.
