By now, you have likely heard just about everything there is to about the M-word – money. How it makes the world go round, how it doesn’t grow on trees… all of those familiar money maxims.
But what about the other M-word? That’s right, there is another and, while not as popular as the former, some believe it to be more important in their lives.
So is meaning in life as important as money?
And are the two mutually exclusive?
Well, it basically comes down to a consideration of value, though not necessarily measured in dollars and cents. In other words, what is the value of identifying and embarking upon a career path that not only suits your personality and skill set, but also ignites your passion?
