Daily Dose: Why Work?

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

Confucius

Can we find work meaningful once we have committed to a job we hate? Do our financial decisions dictate the ability for us to find meaningful work? Can we live a day without truly working? Today’s Daily Dose, parts 1 and 2 (below), explores what it means to have your dream job. Part one presented by the School of Life concentrates on the improvements we can make as a society to encourage pursuit of passions at a young age. Alain de Botton does a wonderful job documenting the idea of “meaningful work“. Part 2, shared by Brittany Taylor and Conor McMillen shows us how lifestyle choices can create an environment for fulfilling work.  Please support these awesome creators by visiting Brittany’s and Conor’s channel as well as the School of Life’s channel devoted to work.

Lastly, to celebrate this Labor day, please visit a page from an italian genletman who’s life is all work, disguised as play. Happy Labor Day Gianluca Vacchi, may we all discover your secret and dance to work in our pajamas.

Enjoy the day and Stay Wise.
