Your “Calling”

I’m really enjoying the writing of my friend and colleague Jeff Thompson on the idea of “work as calling.” The following quote in his recent post How Can I Find My Calling When I’m Stuck in this Lousy Job? really struck a chord with me:

A calling is a particular type of work that one feels destined to do because of one’s personal gifts and unique opportunities. And the point of a calling is to bless other people.

Jeff reminds me again how blessed I am (and you are) to be working in the open education space. The full post is worth a read, particularly if you’re not very happy in your current job.

  1. Thanks for introducing me to my “work calling” 6 years ago. I get up in the morning smiling, thinking about how to make a college education more affordable, shareable, and meaningful for half a million students. Thanks, Brother Wiley!

  2. So glad you liked my blog, David. Thanks for the shout-out. I love your passion for your own work. It is evident throughout your blog, and in the way you light up when you talk about your work. Keep preachin’ it!
