Thought for the Day: Monday
Anita Sharpe on Passionate Work

annie dillard.jpg'Dedicate yourself to something larger than yourself -- to the largest thing you can: to God, to relieving suffering, to contributing to knowledge, to adding to literature, or something else. Happiness lies this way, and it beats pleasure hollow.' -- writer Annie Dillard (from In Fact, The Best of Creative Nonfiction)

Dear Webmaster,

Thanks for reading this email.

I am the Linking Manager of http://www.personalinjurylawyersfaq.com. I found that your website relates to the theme on which my website is based, so I thought that it would be beneficial for my site visitors to read more about the related topic on your website and hence I linked your website off my website
http://www.personalinjurylawyersfaq.com/directory/index.php?search=Worthwhile&submit=Search
I thought that the content on your website was very helpful and could serve as very good information for the visitors of my site. Content like “Personal injury attorneys and lawyers typically represent clients (plaintiffs) who have been injured either financially or physically due to the fault of another. � i found on your site is very relevent to our target audience.
I would also like to take this opportunity to ask you if you would be interested in putting up a link to my website from your website.
Thanks,
Warm Regards,
Linking Manager
DEE

More concisely stated: always look at the larger picture. What are you dedicated to? If it's keeping your job you're in for disappointment. If it's serving a customer base/group of people/a cause, you'll always be on-track.

Good post. Deserved a comment - and I'm surprised no one has.

Upping the ante slightly, an old Whitman quote springs readily to mind...

'This is what you shall do: love the earth and sun, and animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence towards the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown, or to any man or number of men; go freely with the powerful uneducated persons, and with the young, and mothers, of families: read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life: re-examine all you have been told at school or church, or in any books, and dismiss whatever insults your soul.'
