Work is important. We're created to work... to produce and to create. It's a necessary part of our development as people and a community. Learn how to work and work hard.
It's also important to find work that is both fulfilling and worthwhile. Don't spend your days and your efforts on something that doesn't hold your passion. You will be miserable... and that's not good for anyone.
Do what you love and love what you do. Work hard and you will be rewarded, both with good character as well as with financial return. Keep learning and moving forward. Look for advancement and new opportunities... and most of all learn how to work for and with others.
