Learning quotes can be a useful way to remind ourselves that our profession is not about training, it is about enabling learning. It's not about us, it's about the people we are working with and the people we are working for, whether or not they are colleagues or customers.
These quotes and others like them can also give us the opportunity to reflect on our own attitude and approach to work.

Work is also specifically what you are paid to do and what it "pays you to do. It helps to ask yourself every day, "What am I paid for?" Always provided you can answer the question, set your priorities by it and stick to them.
