Are you happy with what you are doing?
It’s a simple question- and the answer is NOT simple.
What are doing now? Are you working 9-5 on a job that you hate, are you working on something useless, are you cleaning up someone else’s mess, are you doing something that gets you money every month but ultimately doesn’t have any value.
The answer to this questions can be simple, if you want it to be-
Take a step back and try to visualize-
- Does the work you do everyday has any positive impact on anyone?
- Does it add up to something big?
- Are you contributing anything to the society or the country or even to this world?
- After 5 years or 10 years, will it have any value?
If the answer to any one of these questions is “YES,” then you are working fine. You are right and you are doing something that matters.
If you are just
earning money and working on something that doesn’t matter, then you are just earning money and nothing more.
Money is important and you work for money. Money is important but isn’t your life important? Are you not important enough to do something important and impact other people’s lives in a positive way? Are you not important enough to do important things and big things?
Are you happy?
