3 Questions About the Value of Your Work

By Steve Gahagen


Our view of work shapes our lives more than we think, simply because we spend more time working than doing anything else. Work is not all of life, but it is an important way we find meaning, purpose and dignity in our existence. Our work may not always be something we get paid for - it may be volunteering or being a full-time parent.

Questions to consider

I encourage you to discuss these questions around the office water cooler or home dinner table. You can breathe life into people in your sphere of influence as you ask them to share their thoughts.

  1. How does your work (paid or unpaid) benefit others and contribute to the good of your community?

  2. What talents do you use in your work?

  3. What brings you the greatest satisfaction in your work?
