Work ethic

After experiencing the “Magic” tour concert of Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band in 2008, I felt inclined to draft a blog post on “Bruce Springsteen and Work Ethic”. However, I never finished it because I couldn’t quite find the right words.

Luckily, I stalled.

Today, I found an excellent blog post by Craig Peters which sums up the topic quite nicely:

Work ethic is just one of many reasons why the Springsteen canon has become the soundtrack of a generation and why he continues to create five-star albums while so many of his contemporaries have drifted off into the nooks and crannies of retirement and classic rock radio.
The energy, passion and dedication he brings to his work is unmatched in the entertainment world. We’d all love to bring the same kind of energy, passion and dedication to our own work, whatever it might be.

You can always argue about music, taste or if a certain artist / kind of music resonates with you – but you can’t argue about the work ethic, energy & dedication you should bring to your job.

Make sure to read Craig’s complete post.
