The Secret to Loving Your Work

Cara Gaskins - Friday, January 08, 2016

When I turned 16 years old, I had my first real paycheck job—selling shoes in a family shoe store in a nearby mall. By the way, you can learn a lot about people when you’re dealing with their feet, but I’ll spare you the more colorful details.

The manager and the two other workers in the store were “older,” and very quickly I learned that the three of them had something in common. All three loved their lives outside the store, but hated their jobs during the week. It was like their jobs were a penalty box between weekends.

A stunning statistic I heard on a major news network was that 85% of workers dislike their jobs. How tragic that so many people spend up to 100,000 hours of their lives doing something they find miserable.

Please watch the video below where I describe a person who found what we all seek—meaning  and purpose in our work.

Yes that was an excellent clip about meaning and purpose of work which was great. It reminds me of my father in law who has given sight to around 200 people who were blind, many where African, who had never seen but when they did they danced with joy. He was one of the leading eye surgeons in his time. Thanks so much it encouraging to listen to encouragers and leaders like yourself, its also good that we walk with humility and realise every we have been given to bless mankind is a precious gift and we are to never abuse it but to give thank to Him who gave it to us .
