How to Find Fulfilling Work

leave a comment »

I want to do my own thing.

I want to live (relatively) simply.

I want to deal with people, not masks.

People matter. Nature matters. Beauty matters. Wholeness matters.

I want to be able to care

So begins on Freedom from a delightful pocket book titled How to Findfulling Work by Roman Krznaric. Other attributes of fulfilling work are flow and meaning. In meaning, Krznaric talks about not seeking extrinsic rewards such as money, status and fame but rather look for work that is autotelic or intrinsically rewarding, which involve doing things we are passionate about, or that we have an inherent talent for or that we can make a difference.

We are not called upon a vocation, but if we continuously do work that gives meaning, flow and freedom, with some luck, we could perhaps grow into a vocation
