Work is what life is all about. Work is synonymous to life. Where there is life, there is activity and work to do. We all have a number of different activities to do.

These are the sentiments we express to God when we worship the Divine. When we express these sentiments in the work we do, we live by the principle that work is worship.
We work when we are students
We do many different kinds of work each day. As a student our work is to study. Our studies include reading the many different subjects that are part of our academics. We also have to write whether it is as class work or home work. Similarly, we have to take our examinations whether they are weekly tests, or tests at the end of a semester or an academic year. We also have many projects and assignments to complete during a year whether they are during the vacations or when the academic session is on. As part of the extra-curricular activities too we have projects and assignments to do.
We work for our livelihood
Similarly, whatever may be our occupation or profession; we have work that is related to our livelihood that we need to perform. We may be in the profession of healthcare, farming, journalism, acting or teaching. We may work as an entrepreneur and run a business. We may work in the hospitality, aviation or transport sectors. Whatever may be our job, we need to work. As a homemaker too we have work related to our home that we need to perform.
Work is therefore indispensable. We may work for the benefit of others or we may work for our own selves. Either way, what we have to do qualifies to be called work.
Making work successful requires the right attitude
Our work is successful when we are able to realise our goals in the best possible way. Our work is well accomplished when we have the right attitude to the work we do. The best way is to transform our work into worship. If we do our work with a sense of joy and love, as also respect and care, we make our work similar to worship.
If we work with honesty, we will not engage in any act of corruption or cheating. We must also work sincerity, dedication and devotion. If our work is imbued with simplicity and purity of heart and mind, we convert our work into worship, and experience peace and contentment.
