If you are not happy while working, there is either something wrong with you or the work you have chosen. Figure it out as soon as you can and make the appropriate change. Is it your work? Or your attitude towards it?  Work should not seem like work at all if things are working harmoniously. Life is too short to be miserable that much of the time.


  1. That's right Jim ... we all need to make our work, a work of art.

  2. "A work of art" ...I like that!


About Me

Jim Olson is a ranch-raised cowboy, author and entrepreneur. Growing up on the high plains of eastern New Mexico he learned to ride young colts, tend to cattle and drive heavy farm equipment at an early age. 

Jim spent a few years competing in the calf roping event at the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association level, qualifying for the circuit finals a few times. He lives on and operates a ranch near Stanfield, Arizona, once a part of John Wayne’s Red River Ranch, and also owns Western Trading Post, dealing in Cowboy and Indian collectibles. 

These great life experiences Jim now uses in his writing career. He writes stories about interesting and extraordinary people of the west including short stories of both fiction and nonfiction. He has a monthly column titled “Cowboy Heroes,” published by several Southwestern and national magazines. Jim has written three books and is working on other projects as well.
