How Important is Meaning in Your Life?

How Important is Meaning in Your Life?

I recently read a LinkedIn article written by Adam Grant.  Mr Grant is a teacher, researcher and author working as a Professor of Management at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.  In his article, Mr. Grant stated that Americans ranked purpose as their top priority for jobs above any other criteria and that the feeling that a person’s work has meaning – that it actually makes a difference and has a lasting impact on other people is a critical requirement.

I started to think about this research and couldn’t help but extend this same thinking beyond just jobs and actually to our daily lives.shutterstock_115638607

Does this same thinking not apply to our everyday lives?

At the end of our life, do we not want to feel like we actually had an impact?  That our life actually made a positive difference in some way?  That our life really had some meaning?

What do you think?  Do you think that living a life with meaning is critical?  I would love to hear your thoughts…
