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
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?”
