March 2: Fulfillment @ Work

Day 15


We all spend too much time working not to be able to experience a deep satisfaction from our work.


Work hard and well, paying attention to the details of your work—even if your work is menial or less meaningful than you would like it to be. Consciously acknowledge that each hour of work, each task, is an opportunity to grow in virtue and character and become a-better-version-of-yourself.

If you’re reading Perfectly Yourself, read pages 79–87 (paperback version) or pages 83–91 (hardcover version).


God, lead me to the work you created me to do, the work that will grow me in the ways you want me to grow.

Do you find meaning in your work?
