What Does Work Mean?

What Does Work Mean?

“Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

If we analyze this quote, it kind of makes work a bad thing. Something to be avoided or changed by doing what you really love but still separate from the idea of work itself because they appear to be incompatible.

Or, on the other hand, it idealizes the thing you love with the idea that there is no work behind it, which is also not true. 

Because actually, work is work, even if it is the thing you love. 

But what does the act of work mean?
