Anthropologists study and theorize. Difficult to believe that 1) we evolved from an amoeba and now because of 2) survival of the fittest we want to work. Both theories leave much to be desired. Theory 1 is utterly illogical. Theory 2 is leaves much to be desired. I would think the fittest would want to rest after all these years. 🙂
The Torah tells it like it is.
The Torah says that G-d created the world. He implanted in each human a soul. This soul wants to do the will of G-d. But He also created a force inside a person that offers advice to follow temptation rather than reason. How do you know the difference? Study your respective commandments.
There is a commandment for all people in the world. To build the world (Lishuvu Shel Olam / הדינין לישובו של עולם) It is Part of the 30 commandments for all humanity of the 7 Major categories of laws for Gentiles – called the 7 Noahide Laws of the Torah.
Going to work builds the world. Thus a person who works gets a mitzvah.
When a person does a Mitzvah / commandment from the Torah – they feel satisfied inside. They satisfy their soul.
That’s why you feel good when you work.
What’s the proof?
He said at work there are Motivators and Hygiene factors.
The Motivators – Motivate people to work. With them present people are satisfied and motivated.
The Hygiene factors – if not present – a person may be dissatisfied. But if they are present it will not increase the satisfaction of the work.
Motivators or Job Factors include
Hygiene Factors include
Company policy and administration
Relationship with supervisor
Relationship with peers
Relationship with subordinates
With accomplishment at work one builds the world. With the work itself one builds the world. Thus a person is satisfied because he is doing a mitzvah.
A gentile observes 7 Noahide laws from the Torah. A Jew observes the 613 commandments from the Torah.
Each observing their respective commandments, gain satisfaction.
