Those who are situated in the mode of goodness, who neither hate inauspicious work nor are attached to auspicious work,have no doubts about work.
It is said in

For one who is not renounced, thethreefold fruits of action—desirable,undesirable and mixed—accrue afterdeath. But those who are in therenounced order of life have no suchresults to suffer or enjoy.
 A person in Krsna consciousness or in themode of goodness does not hate anyoneor anything which troubles his body. Hedoes work in the proper place and at theproper time without fearing thetroublesome effects of his duty. Such aperson situated in transcendence should be understood to be most intelligent and beyond all doubts in his activities.
