A Quest To Find An Alternative To The Word Work

“I’m going to work.”

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, exciting about that sentence.

The word “work” has bothered me for a long time.

Such an unpleasant dull word to describe how most of us will spend the vast majority of their time.

This may be a unique battle I’ve picked, for not all of my friends have resonated with the great distaste I feel towards the words “work” or “job”, however I think it undeniable that a more exciting word would be a potential positive, the lack of excitement doesn’t help our perspective.

As I was describing this plight to a friend they pondered it and provided a fantastic alternative: second home.

“I’m going to my second home.”

A place where you’re hopefully surrounded by people who care about you and are courageous enough to try new things.

And with that I wish all of you a fantastic day tomorrow at your second home.
