Your Next Job – Give it Meaning & Purpose

20
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
Jonathan
