how do you know you are doing your life’s work?
By how you feel when you are doing it. This post was inspired by one of my favorite websites, DailyOM. The post was published a few days ago (or even maybe last week) but the title and theme of it really resonated with me.
A simple, yet true idea, you know you are doing your life’s work by how you feel about it. Questions may arise in your mind such as, well how do i know if I am doing my life’s work? I just go to work and thats it. But it’s more then that. Do you have fire passion joy and love and work? Do you feel like you are truly connecting yourself and putting your heart and soul into the everyday tasks that face you? Do you sometimes feel like you need to reevaluate why you took a certain position or why you don’t feel connected to your work?
Those who are doing their life’s work are easy to point out, it appears that they are genuinely connected, gracefully going through the motions with ease. Observing these types of people can be a learning experience for us all. Maybe it can facilitate our desire to find a job that provides us with enough joy and bliss like these people.
Does your current job make you feel whole? What to other things can you do to bring yourself bliss?
