Some people work for the money, other people work for the fame. There is more to work for, though. You’ll get the real benefit when you work to give. Like the artist Teitur. In his popular TED Talk, this is what he says about work:
‘Singing is sharing. When you sing, you have to know what you’re talking about intimately, and you have to be willing to share this insight and give away a piece of yourself. I look for this intention to share in everything, and I ask: what are the intentions behind this architecture or this product or this restaurant or this meal? And if your intentions are to impress people or to get the big applause at the end, then you are taking, not giving.’
We couldn’t have said it better! When we work, we give it our all. Do you see how Teitur talks about music, architecture and food at the same time? He is right. No mattter what business you are in, you have the chance to put your heart into it. It’s exactly what we always aim for. Do you?
Watch the TED Talk to see a man gives it his all.
