Words to Live and Work By

Sometimes you need a pep talk.

No matter how great your life is, no matter how beautiful your office is, no matter how important your job is, sometimes each one of us needs a pep talk to remind us everything will work out the way it’s supposed to.

And Lately we’ve been needing one. We’ve been aching for someone to remind us that patience is valuable and often rewarded, that the only measure of success is how far we ourselves have come, and that the job that you have matters less than the work that you do to add value to your own life and the lives of others.

So, as we’ve been doing quite a bit lately, we turned to Pinterest to wallow in all the communal wisdom we could find. Here is a sampling of our favorite wise work-related words.
