“Once the work is done, it’s not yours anymore. You draw the comic, write the book, make the app, and then it makes its way out into the world. And it starts to talk back to you. It’s the weirdest thing—if the thing you make goes anywhere, it’s because other people carried it.”

Frank Chimero (via austinkleon)

I have learned this about Managing with Aloha as well, and it’s a very cool thing. Sometimes it’s unsettling, because so much within the sharing economy is quoted partially or out of context, but it’s mostly good, and something I appreciate. Quite humbling too.

And by the way, I am doing exactly what I just noted to be unsettling - quoting this in partial context. Do put aside some time to read the essay this quotation comes from: The Inferno of Independence. It will cause you to think about your own connections.

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.”

“The fanciness of your process only reveals your resistance to the dirtiness of the work. Only the work is The Work. Everything else is an excuse.”

He’s right.

Staying Alive
“I do not particularly like the word ‘work.’ Human beings are the only animals who have to work, and I think that is the most ridiculous thing in the world. Other animals make their livings by living, but people work like crazy, thinking that they have to in order to stay alive. The bigger the job, the greater the challenge, the more wonderful they think it is. It would be good to give up that way of thinking and live an easy, comfortable life with plenty of free time. I think that the way animals live in the tropics, stepping outside in the morning and evening to see if there is something to eat, and taking a long nap in the afternoon, must be a wonderful life. For human beings, a life of such simplicity would be possible if one worked to produce directly his daily necessities. In such a life, work is not work as people generally think of it, but simply doing what needs to be done.”

Hmmm… this makes me think. I’ve always liked the word ‘work.’
Or, to be more accurate, I’ve been drawn to exploring it:

We work on work here, fully understanding how important that is: The work we devote our time and attention to will spill over into every other aspect of our lives. It’s personal, and it’s pervasive, so we work on making it good.
