Staying Connected to Meaning in Your Work : zen habits
While a majority of people struggle to find meaningful work, those who are fortunate enough to have it, have another challenge: Staying connected with that meaning.
It is easy to lose sight of the meaning and why we care about it, as we get stuck in the endless list of tasks. Even if we stay focused on our work, the never-ending tasks can make us lose track of our main objective.
When the focus is on the essential, we start to work on what matters to us the most. It makes us avoid the urgent work shoved in our faces which may not be important at all.
Focusing on meaningful work helps us prioritize our day in the order that aligns with our purpose and mission. It makes us less stressed out and more joyful.
Productive work, which is challenging and even discomforting is welcomed as it is important and meaningful to our lives. The distractions then no longer disturb us as we are giving the work our entire focus.
