When I first graduated law school in 2011, I didn't find work as a lawyer for a year and a half. My good friend, Eric, offered me a job at a warehouse liquor store that he managed; the job provided welcome and much needed income. One of the other workers was a retired union construction foreman and a former amateur boxer named Don. Don had a knack for throwing around unexpected pearls of wisdom and for always busting people's chops. One day, he casually said, "Nick, do all your work with pride. If you shovel $hit for a living, then be the best $hit-shoveler you can be." - Today I performed the Herculean task of cleaning out a barn for some additional rent money. I can say with complete confidence that I was the best dang $hit-shoveler I can be.
