Honorable Work and The Short Bus Episode #77

Aaron McHugh

 
 

In some seasons, the work we do everyday may not be fulfilling, fun or live giving. I want to share a story with you about learning to do honorable work despite the circumstances. Knowing a number of your career stories, this story will challenge you to reframe the way you approach tough career seasons.

I met a man on the street corner in Laguna Beach, CA who forever changed how I understand the value of doing the work I don’t enjoy in an honorable way. He taught me that tending to simple things well transforms the humdrum into honorable life-giving work.

Podcast bullet:

  • If you don’t like the work you’re doing everyday. We can still choose to do it well.
  • It is honorable just doing the hard work of staying alive.
  • There is a lot of pressure in our modern world for our lives to be epic and big. Big and epic aren’t helpful when you find yourself in a season of work you don’t love.
  • We see with our eyes what we believe we will see. Seeing is believing.
  • How we operate in difficult seasons, says a lot about our core beliefs.
