| The book, Bring Your Work To Life, by William John Mills, points out that the secret to meaning in life, |
and in work, depends on how you relate to yourself, how you relate to others and your relationship with higher
values or purpose in life.
Relationships are an important part of work. Despite (不管) what the work is, how you relate to people
influences not only how well you work, but also how you feel about yourself. And how you feel about and
treat yourself in tum influences both how you work and how you get along with others.
Mills suggests that people take a look at how they use time, which is what life is all about. Taking a look
at how you use time, and how you would like to use it, can give you a better picture of yourself, and help you
make better choices in life.
Mills also points out how varying amounts (变化量) of time and energy influence how people feel. Having
little energy and too much time on your hands can turn you into a couch (沙发) potato. But when you have
both time and energy, you will enjoyyour work the best, whatever job you do.
Mills focuses on the need to love what you do, suggesting the following focuses:
1. Be purposeful. Remind yourself of your purpose and put it into practice.
2. Be responsible. Only attend to those things that are within your control.
3. Be there. Stay focused on what you're doing at the time you're doing it.
4. Be accepting. Accept yourself and accept others.
Mills also shares a quotation, " Your work is to discover your work,and then withall your heart to give
yourself to it. "
That can make the difference between just living and feeling fully alive. You have to work at living, not
just at working. Mills' book just has excellent guides for such a joumey.
