Read the Year Without Pants by Scott Berkun

MeaningCompass2.1Scott Berkun wrote a wonderful book chronicling  a year working at WORDPRESS.COM. As a long time WORDPRESS user I was intrigued by his outline of the organization. I encourage you to read it. I like the red cover with just a pair of briefs. Here is a short snippet about meaning at work from Chapter 24 on The Future of Work

The most dangerous tradition we hold about work is that it must be serious and meaningless. We believe that we’re paid money to compensate us for work not worthwhile on its own. People who are paid the most are often the most confused, for they know in their hearts how little meaning there is in what they do, for others and for themselves.

David Zinger is an employee engagement speaker and expert focused on the small, simple, strong, significant actions each of us can take to improve work and working.
