Doing well your natural duty

By doing well the duty which is nearest to us, the duty which is in our hands now, we make ourselves stronger and improving our strength in this manner step by step, we may even reach a state in which it shall be our privilege to do the most coveted and honoured duties in life and in society.
Swami Vivekananda

One’s natural work, though devoid of merit, is better than superior unnatural work. Death in carrying out one’s natural work is useful; unnatural work is fraught with fear.
~ Bhagavad Gita 3.35

One’s inferior natural work is better than superior unnatural work even though well performed. One who does the work ordained by one’s inherent nature, without any selfish motive, incurs no sin.
~ Bhagavad Gita 18.47
