Dirty Jobs

Laurie at Punk Rock HR posted this video of Mike Rowe. She said she hoped it would go viral, so I feel like I'm doing my part.

It's brilliant and I agree with him. We get so caught up in looking for that perfect job, that perfect career, the perfect boss or perfect career path, that we've forgotten the value of hard work.

It's twenty minutes long, but well worth your time. Watch it.

Phenomenal. I'm a CPA in the hedge-fund industry. But to this very day, my most satisfying job? Doing uber-physically demanding ranch work when I was in high school.

The value of hard work, like being a lifeguard for $3.25/hr and having to clean the bathrooms as part of your job, even when the ten-year-old boys who come to your pool think it's really funny to poop on the bathroom floor, is that it reminds you how important it is to finish college, as much as you are sick of school, so you can get a job where all you do is sit in an air-conditioned office 8 hours a day.

Great! Cool to see someone that knows that hard work is the key. :)
