Do you find meaning in your work? Understanding and really feeling the impact you make on on the world shapes your perspective and makes you feel more fulfilled.

Josh Vaisman of Flourish Veterinary Consulting saying meaning is not prescriptive; it can't be given to you.

You have to find and hold onto your own personal sense of meaning.

Often it's easy to get bogged down in your day-to-day, repetitive tasks and lose sight of how they fit into the big picture. When you don't have a sense why you're doing the work, you're more likely to focus on just getting stuff done. This undermines your motivation to do your work carefully, thoughtfully, and intentionally.

Josh is a fan on using a "contribution practice" to keep meaning in the forefront of his mind. Each day he asks himself, "How did I make a difference for someone else today?"

Taking time to notice the effects your work has on others can be a powerful way to feel the impact of your work and to find your sense of meaning.

So, tell me, how did you make a difference for someone else today? I'm dying to hear!
