I got an email with a very deep, but very interesting, question which I will pass on to you:
Which of these two are more important: happiness or meaningful work?
Perhaps I’m asking myself these questions because I’m working in the advertising industry and many people have a rather negative approach to advertising in general.
I would like to believe that there may be some positive approach to advertising and that we can make the difference but sometimes I have doubts when I think its all about money and about making people to buy more.
I am just opening new company with my friend and I believe it would be good to have a clear positive approach and image of the company.
That is a great question. What do you think? Is happiness or meaning more important at work? Are there industries (eg. advertising) where work tends to lack meaning? What can you do to be happy at work in those industries?
