Work is the conscious activity to which we devote more time, more than to our family, or to any other need: 8-10 hours a day that we only exceed while we sleep.
We give work the best time we have, working the best years of our lives. That is why it is essential that we try to fill our day to day with meaning and seek a purpose to our activity.
When we talk about making sense of work we mean the fact that percibir que mi trabajo me aporta algo valioso.
All works can be endowed with a certain purpose if we try to find the form. Therefore, whatever values of your work, try to keep it very much in mind to feel privileged. Otherwise, we tend to get used over time to the good, ceasing to appreciate it.
