The most important work we can ever do is our life’s work or mission. I believe we have a purpose in life and it’s up to us to find out what that is.
In recent times, there have been many surveys done to find out what people’s engagement level and enjoyment at work is. It’s no surprise that the majority of people in the workforce are not engaged or enthusiastic about the work they do.
It’s safe to conclude that those who are not excited about their current work lack clarity as to what their most important work is in life.
Apart from low engagement levels and enthusiasm at work, if the work we are doing is not what we are meant to do, it will:
- Affect all areas of our lives, often in a detrimental way.
- Lower our self-confidence.
- Affect our outlook or attitude about life, and what is possible for us.
- Cause us to miss opportunities because we may not be open to new ideas.
This is why I believe finding our life’s work has to be the most important thing we can ever do in life, no matter what it is.
