Theme: Is it necessary or important to find meaning at work?

Most of us want to feel like we’re making an impact or a difference in the world. But not everyone believes that work is a place we must find meaning. For some, it’s “just a job” and they find meaning outside of their 9-5. For others, work is everything and must be the embodiment of what is meaningful to them. Doing something purposeful is an important part of preventing burnout and cultivating motivation, but we don’t need to be solving world hunger to reap the benefits of meaningful work. It just needs to matter to you. We'll discuss:

  • In your current job, do you feel like you’re making a difference? If so, how? If not, does that matter to you?
  • Does work have to have meaning or should we be looking for meaning outside of our 9-5?
  • How do you balance needing to make money and finding meaning?
  • Does every industry have meaning?
  • What’s one thing you can do differently to find more meaning in your work?
  • How do you know what’s meaningful to you?

Optional pre-reading: How to find meaning when your job feels meaningless

We hope you can join us!
