How the Other Half Works.

I was recently in California visiting my daughter and son-in-law, Bastien. He’s the Vineyard Manager at a winery in the Sierra Foothills about an hour east of Sacramento. The vineyard hires Mexican day laborers on a regular basis and he has gotten to know some of them pretty well, especially the crew chief. Bastien told me that this guy works six days a week in the in the vines at the vineyard, and then last weekend, spent Sunday, all day, working on his brother’s vines. Such a work ethic and commitment to his craft, not to mention his family, impressed Bastien considerably. As it should all of us. In fact, it got me to thinking: how many of us could do the same? Ready to do some marketing or blogging on the side next weekend? Would you even want to? For those who do blog regularly, i.e. daily, you have to hand it to them: it really is a labor of love. Is this your idea of work? Are you ready to make that commitment? Or do you have another concept of work? Not sure I have any great answers or wisdom on the subject… just asking the question.
