The Ashton Kutcher Video: Opportunity Looks Like Hard Work
Yes, maybe it is a sign of the apocalypse that conservatives have turned to Ashton Kutcher for advice. But it's not just that the message and the messenger are so unusual: this captures a genuinely counter-cultural moment: a holiday celebratory previously unknown for profudunity delivering a passionate message about hard work and the dignity of a job... any job.
"I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work,” Kutcher began with his first point. “When I was 13, I had my first job with my dad carrying shingles up to the roof, and then I got a job washing dishes at a restaurant, and then I got a job in a grocery store deli, and then I got a job at a factory sweeping Cheerio dust off the ground.”
He went on: “And I’ve never had a job in my life that I was better than. I was always just lucky to have a job. And every job I had was a stepping stone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job. And so opportunities look a lot like work.”
