No matter what you hope to do in the future, there’s nothing stopping you from transforming your current job into a more meaningful and purposeful experience right now. Robert Holden, the author of Be Happy, encourages people to sit down and draw up their own unique business cards, instead of writing your job title on this card, write down the higher purpose or mission of your work. The idea is to identify the part of your current work that makes you feel fulfilled rather than just busy.
A hair stylist’s job could become:
Self-esteem Consultant: The purpose of my work is to help people feel good about themselves.
A taxi driver’s job could become:
Roving Ambassador- The purpose of my work is to provide a warm welcome and leave a great impression on people traveling our city.
What’s your job title and purpose, or mission of your work?
