“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart.” -Colossians 3:23
Sonya: “Well. Uncle! Now. What shall we do?”
Sonya: “Yes!” -Excerpt from the play Uncle Vanya, by Anton Chekov
The Vietnamese Thien Buddhist monk and pease activist, Thich Nhat Hanh, once wrote, “There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.”
The same can be said about meaningful work. Before searching for the perfect job or project that will give us meaning and purpose, let us first bring meaning to whatever work we’re doing right now. If we can keep doing that, keep showing up, keep going above and beyond, keep being what Seth Godin calls a “linchpin”…meaningful work will find us.
Happy Labor Day everyone!
