Alternative to Quiet Quitting
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
My worst job was dumpster diving, but in some ways, it was the best job I could’ve ever had. Yes! Back in my college days, I took a job digging through trash for items my boss could use to fund his mission work. It wasn’t fun, to say the least. In fact, it was downright disgusting at times, but it taught me the value of a good job and God used it to provide for my needs while teaching me some lessons in humility.
There’s a movement today called ‘Quiet Quitting’ where tired or unsatisfied employees set up boundaries to prevent going above and beyond in their work. They want compensation for extra work and space for their personal life. If you’ve thought about ‘quiet quitting’, ask God to give you the right heart towards your work, one of humility and gratitude. Then, learn how to use your unique skills and gifts to build a career that’s right for you. Bob Dickie is the author of Love Your Work. He says: “If you want to be happy and fulfilled with your career, it’s not about doing what everyone else is doing or what someone told you you had to do in order to be “successful”. It’s about understanding how you can use your unique skills and gifts to build a career that’s right for you.” It’s important to learn this yourself and instill the vision in your children before they leave home. Discover and understand how God made you. You’ll lose track of the hours you work when you’re doing what you love.
