Have you ever questioned your job’s purpose?
You're not the only one. The concept of work has evolved considerably in the last several decades. Despite this, we continue to be sucked into a world of work with outdated tools and expectations. As a result, we are unprepared to pursue meaningful professions that give us fulfillment and benefit our communities. If this practice continues, we will be left with unsatisfactory outcomes and unmet goals. It could also hinder us from understanding how to carry out the work God has called us to do.
In this episode, Michaela O'Donnell joins us to discuss why working does not define our life's calling. She also shares the findings of her study on how empathy plays a role in achieving success. Finally, she imparts wisdom on doing meaningful work in this fast-paced world.
If you're searching for ways to make your work matter, this episode is for you!
