Hard Work Pays Off

"The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated" - William James

I am a good archaeologist. I know my stuff. I work hard, fast, and efficiently.

Sometimes I don't feel appreciated. Sometimes I feel like my hard work is over looked.

I got a call today from my boss at "corporate" (which is always a nerve-racking thing). He made small talk and then told me the real reason why he called. It was to tell me that he appreciates me. He appreciates all the hard work I do and he hopes that I will stay with the company for a long time.

I've been feeling down lately so I really needed that.

That's awesome, Court!

Glad your hard work pays off. I don't think there's a greater compliment at work than someone wanting you to stay forever (okay, besides maybe a big bonus...). Hope he gives you one of those too, because you obviously deserve it!

Wow! That's pretty awesome! That doesn't happen too often these days. And, your right, it does feel good to feel appreciated. Great job!!!
