Did you know that your time is one of your most valuable assets? During our lifetime we will spend a large percentage of our time working on our jobs. In fact, it is estimated that the average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime.
So considering this, it would make sense that we choose a job or career that we find enjoyable and impactful. However, many people work in jobs or even careers that they don’t even enjoy for months or even years!
It’s so easy to get stuck in a cycle of doing work that we don’t enjoy if we think of a job as a way to make money to pay bills, but I believe strongly that God did not put us on the earth to pay bills and die! He has given each of us a bigger purpose and He desires us to use our talents, abilities, gifts, and skills (I like to call our T.A.G.S.) to do purpose-driven work which is our life’s work.
So how do we identify the difference between “busy work” and our “life’s work”? I attempt to break it down in this post.
