Finding Joy in Your Work – Your Bucket List

December 21, 2012

In the movie, The Bucket List, two men (Jack Nicholson as Edward and Morgan Freeman as Carter) with quite contrasting and differing lives find themselves sharing a hospital room.  Both men have a terminal illness and only a short while to live.  This unlikely pair develops a friendship and in the process creates a list of things they want to do before they die. As they proceed on this journey, they each experience life changing revelations.

One of the things on their list was to see the pyramids of Egypt. As they’re looking at the pyramids with a backdrop of blue sky and sunshine, Carter tells Edward that the ancient Egyptians believed that when you die, you have to answer two questions before you get into heaven.

•    Have you found joy in your life?

•    Have you brought joy to others’ lives?

Our work  is one avenue where we can both experience and provide joy to others.

In ways do you find joy in your work?

In what ways do you provide joy to others through you work?
