Last night, before I went to bed, I caught up on my unread emails. (Hurray for zero unread messages!)
A phrase that caught my attention was “I make my work for you.”
The main reason why I write is to express my self, my thoughts, my ideas, and the things I value the most. I also write to share my faith and fulfill my mission of spreading God’s love and word to others.
But sometimes, it feels even more fulfilling when I think that someone else’s life is being changed by this blog (or at least his attitude towards work).
My work becomes much more meaningful knowing that I’m doing this for you.
Many of us work for ourselves and for our families and there’s nothing wrong with that. But, maybe we should also start working for the people whose lives are being changed by the companies we are working with, for our customers, and simply for someone else other than ourselves and our own families. There’s a difference between working to provide and working to make a contribution. Working meaningfully requires us to do both.
Besides, doesn’t it feel liberating to tell someone, “Here, I made this for you”?
P.S. I make my work for you.
