Tips for finding meaningful work
A new concept: Finding work that not only pays the bills but that we also find meaning and purpose in is a relatively new concept.
Work before: For example, work during the Industrial Revolution was a means to an end, a way of making ends meet.
Choice paralysis: However different things are today, it is important to keep in mind that being confused about career choice is perfectly normal.
It is achievable, but not common: Although confusion is natural, and fear also plays a huge factor in finding meaningful work.
Adopting a pragmatic approach: For a lot of people, your innate strengths won’t be obvious.
Everyone has strengths: Everyone has something that they are relatively good at.
Meaning might not be obvious: Most people find work meaningful when they are helping people, in one form or another.
We are unprepared: We should have empathy for ourselves if we have not yet located work that is entirely fulfilling.
We are not shown how: In general, throughout the world, schooling systems fail to prepare us for finding work that is fulfilling for us.
Bills and life get in the way: Many companies in the world are looking to make a quick buck, and it’s very easy to end up working.
