In the upcoming book, due out on Labor Day, on enjoying life without getting stressed about time, Making Sense Of Time, I talk about creating a life of meaning. This is a life of living on purpose of making a positive difference in our world. When people get this notion, some rethink their choice of work or career.
They're working to make or sell things people don't need, things that harm people and/or their environment, things that perpetuate social injustices, income disparities, the dependencies of poverty and food deserts. Or they do work that simply doesn't feed their soul.
These people will only experience of life of significance when they shift their work or careers accordingly. It happen suddenly or in stages but happen it must if they want to enjoy their life to its fullest.
