It's always a good idea to think of both work and heat from the perspective of the system. We know that endothermic reactions are categorized with a +delta H since they are taking in heat. With that same concept, we can think of positive work or heat as being applied to the system. If heat is added to the system q is positive. If work is being done to the system, w is positive.
