Do you work to pay your bills?

This very clever cartoon presents us with an interesting issue…if we have food, clothes, health care…what is the point of working?

Dan Pink and Malcolm Gladwell would say: to create meaning.

Finding meaning and purpose is one of the most powerful way of being happy at work.

Gladwell identified 3 caracteristics of a meaningful job:

1) clear relationship between reward and effort

2) complex work

3) autonomous

Is your job ticking all these boxes? Do you have a meaningful job?

Are you like this person asking “What do we need jobs for?”
