What Is Your Idea Of A "Good Job?"

In Gallup's "World Poll" of 2013, they found that what the whole world wants, is a "good job." They also discovered an astounding 63% of workers worldwide are "not engaged" in their work. That is, they "lack motivation and are less likely to invest discretionary effort in organizational goals or outcomes."

Could this be because they don't feel their job is a "good" one?

Pay is not the most important factor for most people in a "good" job. Research shows that a critical factor in job satisfaction is meaning. The kind of meaning that comes from knowing that you are accomplishing something very important. 

But we don’t get meaning from our work, we bring meaning to our work. 

The key to bringing meaning to our work lies in seeing a purpose for our work much greater than ourselves. This can happen by engaging in the First Commission (to govern over all of creation) and the Great Commandment (to love God and our neighbors as ourselves). 

Why not train young people how to do this while they are still in school?

God's Pleasure At Work, was created for use in Christian schools and homeschools as a text for students in grade 10 or 11

It can be used as part of a Bible class, an economics class, a personal finance class, or a career orientation class.  

But it's just as helpful for their parents and their teachers!
