What is the purpose of having a job? Why would anyone work long hours everyday and then invest it with special significance? A job doesn’t hand out free money, like your parents, or loved ones would; it only awards based on the amount of work you complete. We might say it borrows meaning from what it surrounds and sets off, personal growth with its challenging assignments and the feeling of appreciation you receive everyday from customers. When photographers discuss the way in which a photograph reduces the reality it represents, they mention not only the passage from three dimensions to two, but also the selection. My job keeps me motivated by its very nature and not solely a paycheck.
