How To Be Happy At Your Work

"Some months ago, while visiting a steel mill in Ohio, I stepped into a nearby diner for a cup of coffee. I took a seat near a window overlooking the busy, sprawling plant. At a table next to mine two steelworkers were talking and I couldn't help hearing their conversations. A lean, nervous, worried-looking man in his late thirties was saying, "I tell you, Charlie, I hate working. I wish I didn't have to show up at the mill every day in the week. I could spend the rest of my life doing nothing at all, just nothing."
