What work does

One of the most common questions asked in the West today, ‘what do you do?’

Let’s investigate this further. Maybe we should consider, what does work do to us?

When we engage in projects, we’re dedicating a huge sum of our resources. We’re giving away the opportunity to engage in something else during that time, which, after all, is our most valuable resource.


In return what do we get? Obviously, we get money, that’s a given. But we also get experiences, and are both pressed onto us, and can be created by us. We get the opportunity to learn new skills, develop existing ones, and dedicate our organisations resources to investigating a problem that we otherwise wouldn’t likely pursue by ourselves.


Work matters. It’s probably the most life altering activity we peruse. It influences who we marry, where we live, who our friends are, even what we do for fun.
