What is Work?
It is a characteristic of modern life to not value work, to minimise it and, much like responsibility, to find it draining and therefore we need to escape, withdraw or let off steam. And so we are conditioned to ‘work’ primarily to maximise return while minimising effort and little else. But what about the quality of the work we do, our interactions and relationships, and how productive are we when our main motivation at the start of every workday is to get out the door, and every Monday is a rush to get to Friday? In the absence of a greater purpose, how can we guarantee our integrity, the quality of our work and relationships, and will we not instead guarantee only that we taint these by our displeasure and unrest?
In this section, our authors of the What is Work articles write from their own experiences and lived way, to reflect a totally different way to approach work — returning work itself to be perhaps the most purposeful and therefore truly evolutionary part of life. It highlights the importance of purposeful work, according to the simplicity of the Ageless Wisdom in its modern day expression, The Way of The Livingness, in what may otherwise be the purposeless state of modern life.
There are plenty of business coaches and management consultants out there, but none of them offer the powerful insight that The Livingness does to making work – work!
