Ten Commandments of The Virtues Of Work

“Choose a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Mark Twain

Many people in the workplace suddenly had spare time on their hands, commuting less, and access to technologies.  If people were quitting their jobs, at least some were creating their own businesses.

Ten Commandments: The Virtues of Work

1. Education As A Path To Work Having that degree no longer guarantees “you have it made.”  However, statistics still indicate that your first salary out of college would be above those without a college degree. Don’t rule out getting a vocational degree if college is not for you.

2. Skills Enrichment

Throughout your life, you should strive to strengthen your hard and soft skills through your job or on your own.  Hard or technical skills are teachable and quantifiable abilities gained through formal education or on-the-job training.

3. Gives Life Meaning And Fulfillment Acquiring knowledge through learning opens up many doors toward personal fulfillment. It makes your job that much more enjoyable.

4. Characteristics of Meaningful Work What makes work meaningful? It is often up to the individual’s personality and what kind of work they enjoy doing. Some people love working with their hands and seeing something tangible, others are rewarded by helping others, and many feel rewarded by making lots of money, affording a luxury lifestyle.

5. Hard Work And Determination Spending hours on a certain task working hard by itself is not enough. You need to be effective and efficient, have grit and personal sacrifice, and good fortune.

3. The IRS Will Begin the Collections Process This one is a baddy. The IRS will come after you for money they think you owe them. They’ve got a war chest of ways to extract what you owe: wage garnishment, levy money directly from your bank accounts, or even placing a federal lien against your property.

If you need more time to repay your unpaid tax balance, you can file a request for an extension and then apply for an extension. There are different costs tied to establishing an installment plan. A formula exists that considers your particular circumstances (such as debt, the time frame needed to repay, etc.) and determines the cost.
