What’s it about?:Purpose and Pizzas
And without it, you can feel lost.
A job with no meaning is a guaranteed way to live life like a zombie.
And for some people, having purpose means changing the world.
Making a difference to humanity and the planet.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Purpose can be found in many ways.
Which reminds me of the happy pizza chef.
When I was filming the first version of my LPS online training course several years ago, I was filming in a small city in Lithuania.
And after 8 hours of filming in front of camera each day , I was pretty tired! So I kept going back to the same Italian restaurant next to my hotel.
And there was an open pizza kitchen, where the pizza chef was working away each night.
What really struck me…
Was how happy he seemed.
A spring in his step.
So after my 3rd or 4th pizza (not in the same night!) I started chatting with him.
And I mentioned that he seemed so happy with his work.
And he agreed.
So I asked him what was so good for him about his job.
And his reply was something like this:
“Well you see. You may think I am just making pizzas. But I am not. I am making memories. People come here with their friends and families. And they share and enjoy my pizzas together. They connect. And it’s the best feeling in the world to know I have played my part in those experiences.”
Now – if that’s not a clear sense of purpose, I don’t know what is!
Makes you think, doesn’t it?
Do you connect with the purpose behind what you do each day?
Does it resonate with you emotionally, not just intellectually?
Or is it just a job that pays the bills?
I’m off to remind myself of my sense of purpose and make sure I live it every day.
How about you?
To your fulfilment.
