I’ve never been one to celebrate Labor Day. It’s a US holiday built to say, “Hey good job, workers. You did work!” Seems a bit patronizing to me. I prefer to celebrate work every day. But you can make a holiday what you want, and so I made mine my own.
Over the last handful of days, Jacq launched a new food blog, I launched a nerd blog, and I published a book. I released a new podcast episode, and I’ve created this blog post.
I also created more material for the various courses and webinars that I deliver at Owner Media Group and I worked on my upcoming event in Portland, Maine.
My point is this: labor is part of ownership. Work is part of ownership. To own our choices, lives, and future, we have to work for it. There’s no holiday needed. Make every day Labor Day. Celebrate hard work every day, provided the hard work is in service of your larger goals and the community you work for.
Did I celebrate? Not today, on the official holiday. But in between all that work, Jacq and I climbed three or four different trails on a mountain. We hung out in little coastal Maine towns. We ate all kinds of food. We had lobsters from Young’s Lobster Pound in Belfast, Maine, and we celebrated our future goals and plans as well.
Labor every day. Be grateful for the work. Feel blessed by the work you deliver. It’s a much better way to tackle the world at large.
