Your "why" matters

It doesn’t matter how big your paycheck is or what your title is to find meaning in your work.

What matters is 'why'. Figure out what you care about to give you direction and that sense of purpose.

  • “Why do you wake up in the morning?"
  • "How will you make an impact?"
  • "How can you put your talents and gifts to use?"

Why am I doing this?  Ask yourself why until you understand your actions and decide how to reach your goal.

For instance, ask yourself why you are doing this job. If your answer is to get paid, then ask yourself, Why do I want higher pay? If the answer is so you can have a better life, then force yourself to answer the third “why”: Why do I want a better life?

It’s almost hard to imagine now that people would commute 2 hours each way, from home to office and back, hopping buses and trains. Remote working, as discovered by millions recently, has plenty of freedom and the added advantage of no-commute.

Landing oneself in a remote working job isn’t a cakewalk, and aspirants need a plan that will showcase them as the best candidate, who is cut out for working productively without supervision.
