My first article ever was about the meaning of work. A prophecy?

I have worked hard ever since to help people find passion and meaning in what they do. To this day, one of my first questions are:

  1. Can you speak your purpose in one clear sentence?
  2. Do you wake up most Monday’s feeling energized to go to work?
  3. Are you clear about how you measure your success as a person?
  4. Do you use your gifts to add real value to people’s lives?
  5. Are you experiencing true joy in your work?

And then I take it from there. My mantra has always “Work hard, be nice, follow your dream, and live with passion.”
