Thought for the Day: Tuesday
Anita Sharpe on Passionate Work

'Meaningful jobs are better paid than those essentially routine in nature. This was the case in the days of Mark Twain, and it is true today.

'Work will become hard fun -- fun in the sense that it will be edifying, playful, engaging. In other words, we are moving away from work as the noble sacrifice.' -- Rolf Jensen (The Dream Society)

Meaningful jobs may pay MORE, but they don't always pay consistently (just ask the writers out there who are trying to get that very meaningful book published). In college we learn how to get a job, not necessarily a meaningful one. I'm fascinated with the notion of teaching people how to find personally meaningful work, and how to navigate the choppy waters of making it pay.

Meaningful to the individual, maybe, but not to society as a whole.
In general, genuinely useful jobs tend to pay less, e.g. Garbage collector, nurse, teacher, etc.
Just look at the number of 'vapour companies' that do nothing but move money around, advise, consult, etc. that make and pay an absolute fortune. Do we really need the number of insurance companies, banks and phone companies we have? All producing virtually identical offerings, probably sourced from the same supplier?
Communist manifesto over :-)
