Are you working because you want to, or are you working because you have to?
I’m fortunate enough to be in the former category. And if you’re not, you can be. If your work is linked to your highest values, you’ll enjoy getting up in the morning. If you know what’s important to you, and you can find a way to serve people in that way, you’ll find meaning and fulfillment in every day of your life.
For me, everything that Measurable Genius does is linked to my values. That’s what enables me to work hard, work smart, and work at what I can find meaning in.
But I wasn’t born knowing this. My drive to connect meaning with work came from looking around as a kid and seeing people (notably, my own father) suffering through their work. And I wondered if it had to be that way.
On this episode, I sit down with David MacElwain of Bail and Beyond fame and talk purpose, story, and meaning.
