We are all temporary workers. All of us.
If you have an executive position in a corner office with great benefits and a pension plan, your job is temporary. If you have a full-time position with 20 years service at a rock solid, well-known company, your job is temporary.
Your rock solid, well-known company is temporary too.

If you are a temporary employee from an employment agency working at a client company, your job is definitely temporary.
If you are an employee who depends on someone else to produce your payroll check, your job is temporary.
If you are a successful business owner who produces products or services, even your job is temporary.
All jobs are temporary.
When those paychecks arrive every two weeks and the funds are direct deposited into your account, it is so easy to think this money train is going to run forever. But that’s not how it works in our economy.
The purpose of this article is not to scare you. We just need to be reminded of the realities of life; everything is temporary.
Enjoy it while you can. Do good every day. Treat people with respect. Be kind to children and the elderly. Adopt an abandoned dog. Pay for someone’s lunch. Take a break and go walk in a park and enjoy the sun. Spend time with your friends and family. Be hospitable.
Not only are our jobs temporary, our lives are temporary too. Make the most of every day.
