Being a fan, I was thrilled when Alain de Botton asked Tremendousness to create a video for his wonderful The School of Life project—an organization “devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture.”
The topic? How to find meaningful work—something very near and dear to my heart. So near, in fact, that myself and some friends started our own company to help us achieve that goal.
Contrary to some expectations, it isn’t only money we want from work. We also need our work to feel ‘meaningful’. But what exactly is meaningful work, and where can we find more of it?
The video is purposefully calm and Zen-like—a peaceful, flowing meditative journey as opposed to Tremendousness’s usual faster-paced explanatory videos.
I hope you enjoy it—and I hope you’ve found meaningful work too (and if you haven’t yet, you’ve now got some great tips to start you on your way :-)
