Today I am feeling a little reflective. In this reflective spirit, I have been thinking about purpose and productivity. Have you ever noticed that the less you do, the less you want to do? The same goes for productivity, the more active you are, the more likely you are to take on different challenges.
Identifying your passion and making sure that your career aligns with that passion is extremely important. While most people know what Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is, I think it is worth mentioning. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs states that one must first meet their physiological needs, safety, long and belonging, esteem, and then self-actualization to be a completely fulfilled person. I believe that identifying one’s passions, and living them out satiates the needs identified in the “esteem” and “self-actualization” categories of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
