Bob Ross: Winter Elegance

Bob Ross what a guy! What hair!!  I watched “Winter Elegance”, Episode 11, Season 19.  His philosophical thoughts circled around my mantra this year which has been to get back my happy.  He said “Enjoy it, enjoy it!  You do your best work if you do a job that makes you happy.  It’s too bad that everybody does not have a job that they’d rather do than anything else in the world.  And then you do your best at it.”  Funny thing though (or perhaps not so funny), is that overachievers are engaged to do their best work, and it’s not a matter of happy but rather a matter of reducing stress and anxiety.  Get ‘er done, well and on time, then the stress and anxiety go away.  Happy is just icing on the cake. 

Maybe Happy is reserved for relaxation and down time instead of for work and school (sigh).  Except for Bob Ross, of course!
