Many are seeking a holistic approach to life and work to make work an art – an expression of our deepest selves instead of just a job where we earn our money. We ask ourselves what are we working for? Do we work to solve financial problems or to creatively express ourselves? The work we choose to do shapes our lives and determines our activities. It affects our psychology in the way we feel about our world and the things we do in it.
Your life’s work should be something you can give your all to. Something you can dedicate yourself to. It should be something that you are able to persist to excellence.
Your life’s work should be something you love to do, something your talents can find full expression through. We bring enthusiasm and creativity to the work we enjoy. Without this love we are prone to feel burnt out, resentful, and frustrated. Work without love or joy is unfulfilling.
Your life’s work should be your way of making the world a better place. We all want to give, and know that happiness comes from helping others, so it is best to find something that makes an important contribution to your life.
Your life’s work should be something you care deeply about. Something that is inline with your values and ideals, something that you take pride in.
In finding your life’s work you will find happiness.
