Business is busy-ness that’s what it’s about
It occupies engages distracts from primal shout
It provides long task lists filled with many to do’s
An arena for creativity with its own taboos
A place where we can act out our competitive fire
Sometimes it’s a context for service that is higher
It is becoming our dominant social institution
As family disintegrates it’s a substitution
Within its confines we express our personal art
It provides context for each a fresh start
We get to exercise all the parts of our brain
As we explore brand new business terrain
For personal drama it’s a great stage
For charm and seduction competence and rage
It’s a form of theatre in which you can learn
And realize your dreams at the same time you earn
When thinking of work realize it’s much of your life
It’s relationships become family sibling husband wife
Think of colleagues as your “work family”
Embracing their concerns satisfies your needs endlessly
How do you think about the world of business?
Do you see work and business as opportunities to learn and collaborate or just a place to make money?
What about the idea of work as service – how do you view that?
What about your colleagues – are they mission or profit driven, or some combination of both?
How does work serve you?
How does it detract?
