Does Your Job Speak to You?

PR PersonDana is one of the only people I know who has stayed with the same company for almost a decade and doesn’t regret it. She does not feel stiffled or underutilized. In fact, she loves her job!  She is a PR Specialist who claims to be constantly challenged and fulfilled by each project she undertakes. 

“You want to spend eight hours a day, five days a week, doing something that speaks to you.”  So, how do you know if your work “speaks to you”?

Dana has a litmus test for all of us.  “If you go home and you are still thinking about your job, about how to make it better, then it is probably right for you.  However, if you are at work, thinking about what you wish you could be doing, then this job might be wrong.”

Does your job speak to you?  How can you be sure?


  1. I have been blessed to have a job for the past 10 years myself that I have/had loved. It was with one school for 8 years and now 2 years at a new school. I always wanted to be at worked and was always thinking about it at home. Not at the detriment of my personal life but I just loved what I did so much I was always looking towards what I could do better. However, my job was very similar between both schools until recently. Now that I’ve been asked to take on a new job I’m very anxious and feeling dread. I don’t look forward to work so much. I know it’s a job I can do and do well it’s just not a job that is fulfilling to me. I am looking forward to how God will grow me through this experience.
