when you think your work sucks


video: construction workers demolishing one part of the building in my office complex. it was around 35 degrees Celsius outside when i clicked this video. and this was before noon.

i belong to the advertising industry and we guys usually keep complaining about this or that. i know every job has its ups and downs, pluses and minuses, but sometimes we just do not realize how privileged we are to get our air-conditioned offices and corporate perks. i’m no saint like Gandhi, but i do acknowledge his wisdom in looking at those less privileged than us. no epiphany but simply a realization of how lucky i’m to be where i’m in life.

gratitude is an infinitely more useful tool for peace of mind than competing with those ahead of you in this rat race of life. what do you say?
