Martin Luther King said – “Whatever your life’s work, do it well.”
He went on further to explain that – “A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.”
I believe the point he was trying to stress is that your work should be aligned with your life’s purpose.
Doing your work “well” is easy if you believe in the value of your occupation and you continue to seek work that you find meaningful.
Unfortunately some of us settle into jobs that we dread waking up each morning to; thus leaving us unhappy and unfulfilled.
Yes, I understand that in these economically challenging times, most of us are fortunate to be working, but I want to challenge you to take that labor of work and turn it into a labor of passion.
Seeking out passion in your current position can provide you with a fresh perspective and clear out the cob webs of confusion. Your new found passion can create sparks for future creativity, which can ultimately lead you closer to your life’s work.
