Your Work Matters, Even When It Feels Like It Doesn’t

A welcome reminder from The High Calling for this Monday: your work matters (even when it feels like it doesn’t).

Blogger and Chief Creative Officer at iDoneThis Janet Choi quotes authors Teresa Amabile and Steven Kramer from their book The Progress Principle, “What matters is whether you perceive your work as contributing value to something or someone who matters (even your team, yourself, or your family).”

“Meaning isn’t necessarily lofty,” Choi goes on to say. “As in some unattainable, fairy tale magic bean thing, but it is something larger and greater than ourselves. The function of meaning is that it forms a bridge, extending yourself to a point somewhere beyond. And that might be as close as contributing value to the person next to you.”

As Christians, we don’t have to look far to find that place of meaning.
