“Ultimately, the purpose we find must come from within. Don’t take the easy way out by expecting a job to do all the heavy lifting. In the next sixty seconds, reflect on this question: How can I find inspiration in what I do? Now take a few more minutes to consider these questions as well: What helpful attitude can I bring to the people I meet through my work? Is there a challenging aspect to my work that can keep me engaged? How does my work serve others? How does it serve my life? What can I learn from this work that can broaden my perspective? How can I bring more vitality and joy to what I do?
Again, this inquiry does not mean resigning yourself to work you don’t like or giving up on your dreams. By all means continue to pursue that special job or career that resonates with you. But while you do, choose not to drain yourself by resisting what is already in your life. Not having a special job in the short term doesn’t mean you can’t make a short-term job special. You bring to it what no one else offers.”
