Craftsmanship - the desire to do something well, for its own sake.

The morning begins very early for us at the bakery. But when wholesome and beautiful products start rolling out of the oven, one's view of work and the world becomes totally fresh and satisfying.

'The man who works recognizes his own product in the World that has actually been transformed by his work: he recognizes himself in it, he sees in it his own human reality, in it he discovers and reveals to others the objective reality of his humanity, of the originally abstract and purely subjective idea he has of himself.'

from Introduction to the Reading of Hegel: Lectures on the Phenomenology of Spirit by Alexandre Kojeve
