Some would means a work as a choice. That you just lying on bed, and voila you got one job. Something that have no consequences. Something you can start anytime and stop on the other time. Do things what you want what you like. Be yourself and be happy as you ever be.
On the other side, for many people, job means life. That everything really depend on it. That once you lose it, you lose whole world. That kind of work, which put someone with no choice. Work or die. Yes. For many people working only means to extend your life a day, or maybe a half day? We are not talking about prestigious work with high pay and fancy workspace. We are talking about reality. Majority's reality.
Work with no passion. Work as though it never cover enough. A work that only can give you smile through you family's smile. You live for today and let tomorrow be tomorrow bussines.
