“if you’re not enthusiastic about what you’re doing, why do it?”
Because they’re paying me. (Patricia)
Well, this is saying the most with the least.
The point is not doing it, it is doing it well.
And certainly you are enthusiastic of doing something if they pay you well, or if they pay you little, but you need that little.
It really doesn't matter what, but if.
The reason, whatever it can be, is ALWAYS a good reason.
I can be quite enthusiastic if the reward is a good one, because I try to do my best and trying to do your best is a way of being enthusiastic about it. Isn't it?
