About finding meaning and purpose in your work
We spend the majority of our waking hours at work, and many more hours outside work still thinking about it. Less than a generation ago, a job was considered to be a source of income to support a family, nothing more. But today, many of us want our jobs to give us a sense of purpose and meaning in a world that can seem difficult to navigate. We are also much more aware of what is a toxic work environment and the terrible consequences a poor work-life balance can have on our mental and physical health.
We want our work to make us feel good, to enable us to contribute to making the world a better place while at the same time paying us what we need to meet our needs (and desires). Finding all of this in a job can feel difficult (impossible!) so we often believe that starting our own business is the only way we will be able to get our work to meet all these expectations.
Within this context, it is little surprise that more and more people start their own venture in so-called social impact industries. Every day there are more yoga teachers, life coaches (!) or eco-conscious consultants. But did you know that burnout is a common - but little talked about - phenomenon among these professions? Selling “wellbeing” can require a tremendous amount of work for little money - the recipe for burnout.
When it comes to finding a purpose in our work, we are all unique individuals with unique skills and aspirations. There is no one-recipe fits all. This is why it’s time to rethink what we mean - and what we want - when we look to find meaning in our work, regardless of whether we are self-employed and regardless of the field we work in.
