Work Ethic - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Work requires professionalism,
at all times in all set of conditions.
let an earned knowledge and skills,
an asset to be utilized as maximal.
no regrets even if reward is scare,
go ahead do it for the love of work.

People around need not to be told,
everyone knows who perform well.
real professional does not brag,
seldom claims for recognition.
open-minded to a paradigm shift,
never pessimistic but often optimistic
at anything of value and substance.
let others rationalize to find reasons,
act on the issues with sound mind
no jesting around just do things right.

    This is a very interesting piece of reflection on some principles associated with work and professionalism.We also recognise you as being a professional! Throughout those lines you also remind us of 'doing things right' and considering 'value and substance'.Great thoughts!
    Thank you for your words, Marvin! !
    Kind regards,
    Maria C. Costa

    Honest hard labor without personal ambition for rewards will always give sooo much satisfaction - so many don't understand this feeling. Great great work (Report) Reply
