How often have you thought about working? Enjoyment, too many hours, not enough pay, satisfaction, no rewards for the investment, fulfillment, etc. I gave this much thought, sat down, and wrote reflections on work.

Recently published in the Public School Montessorian, a national quarterly publication, here is an article where I shoveled those reflections. Click over to read the piece and see if you agree with what I have to say about work.

Your examples of when work is pleasurable/satisfying rather than a necessary task ring true for me. I also often think of our work in education as a "vocation," which I find to be another motivating perspective.
