What the heck is work anyway?
Sometimes it takes a while for someone to write something in the blogosphere, others to read it and some to include a reference to it in their own blog and so on.
The thread on the definition of work took over a month to reach me (via HRzone.co.uk). It makes for an interesting read – particularly when you realise that one of the formal definitions of work includes the word work in its definition.
Compulsion, money, activity (as opposed to rest), results oriented (but so is my knitting and that’s not work as I understand it). So, if we can’t define work adequately maybe we can manage to say what its opposite is.
