TDL107 To Serve Yourself Is To Serve The World
The Sunday Letters Podcast is the weekly audio newsletter from organisational psychologist Larry Maguire on the meaning & purpose of daily work and our paradoxical relationship with it. We explore how we may break free from tiresome means-to-an-end labour and take command of their own working lives. Topics include solo working, careers, entrepreneurship, small business economics, society and culture. Content follows the written newsletter, which goes out to subscribers every Sunday.
To Serve Yourself Is To Serve The World is a follow on from yesterday's episode titled "less is more" and suggests that to focus on that thing that lights your fire, that feeds you soul, is to not only serve oneself, but it is to serve others too. In that sense the artist must be selfish. To run around appeasing others all the time is to live outside ourselves. It is counter productive and eventually serves no one. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sunday-letters/message
