Are you a shirker, a jerker or a worker?

As the country celebrates Labor Day today, I would like to share something I heard in a sermon recently by a good friend.

Are you a Shirker, a Jerker, or a Worker?

A shirker - a person who actively evades duties, responsibilities or work.

A jerker - a person who starts off like a rocket but ends up falling like a rock.

A worker - a person who acts or operates effectively.

Which one are you?

We've all probably been in each category at least once. But what are you on a daily basis? Nobody wakes up and decides they are going to be a shirker, do they?

If you are going to work tomorrow, which one will you be?


  1. Very interesting take on giving 100%.
    I snorted milk out my nose. :)

  2. Thanks for the visual. Is that one of items on your bucket list? :)
