The Real WorkNov 23, 2020
The real work is defined by your values, volition, and character. It's expressed through the emotional labor of empathy, care, consideration, and compassion.
The real work is human work.
Work done with and for others that seeks to make things better, that's the real work.
We enhance our lives most through efforts that serve and elevate others.
The Real Work
It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
The real work happens when we embrace uncertainty, when we are lost, when we are confused, and when we navigate adversity. The real work fosters the real and necessary human skills of humility, acceptance, patience, and resilience.
Where and with whom are you doing the real work today?
