For those who seek to engage problems and opportunities with a new sense of purpose.
Work today can feel like a pressure cooker, with painful levels of stress, interpersonal conflict, and the risk of burnout. We can lose track of our goals and feel our work is pointless and going nowhere. We might even feel tempted to engage in Quiet Quitting.
Developing a deeper sense of purpose can help us overcome these problems and perhaps even flourish in our work lives.
Many of us have a deep, intuitive desire to connect with something deeper than ourselves. And we have a closely related desire to contribute to the greater good and the well-being of other people through our work. These powerful desires can profoundly affect our work lives if we let them guide us to our deeper purpose. The Sacred Meaning of Everyday Work will help readers find this new sense of purpose and deal with challenges and opportunities with wisdom, strength, and courage.
Tribken offers practical insights from multiple sources, including the Bible, contemporary research, and experience in business. These extend into various important work-related topics, including: human flourishing; overcoming obstacles to flourishing such as sin, failure, stress, burnout, and interpersonal conflict; cultivating character strengths such as courage, integrity, compassion, hope, humility, prudence, and resilience; spiritual practices that can help us as we work; developing a calling; and the spiritual dimension of leadership.
The Sacred Meaning of Everyday Work is written for people who take their work seriously and have at least some interest in religion or spirituality. The book asks readers to consider the various insights from the perspective of their own faith or spirituality.
