Is what you're working on working for you?

How do think about the work you do?

Are you working at something?

Is it something worthy of your valuable (and finite) time, attention, and effort?

Are you doing that work in collaboration or community?

If not, why not?

Or maybe you're working for something?

If so, is it a paycheck or a cause?

Perhaps you're working on something?

Is it a project, a problem, or a passion?

And most work is done with something.

Are you working with your hands, your mind, your heart, and your soul?

If you're like me, you probably don't think much about all the ways you work.

But here's the thing, work matters. It matters a lot.

What we work at, in, on, with, and for says a lot about who we are.

All living things work. But humans are unique in that, if we do it with integrity and intention, our work informs our identity and infuses our life with meaning.

So, what are you working on? How are you working in and at it? Who are you working with and for? 

How's it all working out?
