Everyone would like their work to be meaningful, but not all jobs make that possible, right? Turns out, it’s all in how you think about it. By connecting your work to how it benefits others, you can find meaning in just about anything.

A prime example is Chhapte Sherpa Pinasha, a former Everest guide who now works in a New York deli. According to Pinasha, “the two jobs are not really different,” since “both involve helping people.” Instead of seeing his job as merely slicing lox, he’s found the deeper meaning in what he does, motivating him to do his best work. 

No matter what you do, there’s someone benefitting from it. Figure out who and use them as inspiration.
