Oh, this was such a good read! Another reminder that our culture tends to persuade us that 'meaning' in life is supposed to come from our work--not our family, our country, or our spiritual beliefs. We think we need to figure out how our day job is saving the world, and usually it's not. This article argues instead that the key to enjoying your work, to finding meaning in your work, is better understanding the 'because'. Stick with me, you work 'because'...the organization is improving lives, it pays the bills and supports your family, it provides you with an opportunity to challenge your mind, etc. Work is often a struggle, as it should be, so the key is to figure out what makes the sacrifice worth it. Easy, right?
