Soul of Work
To better use the time we are given . . . to make the most of those shining moments. Challenge, inspiration, raison d’ętre.
Since the average individual spends most waking hours on the job, work presents unprecedented opportunities to better use the time we are given. Transcendent work negates the need to escape, eliminates the “I’d rather be sailing, skiing, golfing” mindset.
The soul of work lies in the enduring satisfaction which only personal growth through purposeful endeavor can provide. The transitory exhilaration of amusement cannot compare to the genuine fulfillment of meaningful, creative, and challenging work.
Transcendent work is the apogee of fun and the optimal use of those shining moments.
Why do some love and others loath their work? Theory and research suggest the following formula for transcendent work:
Attitude + work content = transcendent work
While the attitude factor may resist change, work content is relatively malleable; identifying components essential to high quality work content is the first step toward creating a transcendent tomorrow. In order to meet the rising expectations of today's highly educated "knowledge worker," organizations have both the responsibility and privilege of enriching work content to synthesize transcendent work.
Working together, individuals and organizations form a powerful team. Since everyone benefits--individual, organization, community, nation, and world--creating transcendent work is a classic "win-win" strategy.
