Meaning: Josh Vaisman

Podcasts

Jan 31

​​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!

Thanks for Listening!
