Introduction

Most people want health, happiness and meaning in life, among many, many other wants. George Bernard Shaw (“Preface to Androcles and the Lion”) observed, “Whether Socrates got as much out of life as John Wesley (founder of Methodism] is an unanswerable question, but a nation of Socrateses would be much safer and happier than a nation of Wesleys.” I think a nation of Ingersolls would be much safer, happier and wiser than a nation of Donald Trumps.

I offer it here in its entirety.

MEANING AND PURPOSE AT WORK: COSMIC VERSUS TERRESTRIAL MEANING

Featured in:

Wellness programs at the worksite focus on cost containment and risk reduction. Here's another approach.

Introduction

Besides the obvious motivations for work, such as income, connectedness and opportunities to practice your skills, there are other positive returns from what you do for a living.

We have passed through the most remarkable campaign of our history -- a campaign remarkable in every respect.
