Your Next Job – Give it Meaning & Purpose

May 2012

Are you living your life on purpose?
If not its time to think again.
How robust and sustainable is your job?

Daniel Pink uses 3 criteria to check this:
1. Can someone else do your job cheaper and faster (in an another country eg India / China)?
2. Can a computer do your job cheaper and faster?
3. Is what I am doing (or considering doing) of value in our age of abundance?

This is why skills such as empathy are so invaluable and worth developing.
How empathetic are you?

Warm Regards
