Make Work Fun and Fulfilling By Shifting Priorities

Valeri’s Story

Ah, the Holiday Season and the end of the year. During this time of year, people are leaving jobs and businesses earlier to go on vacation and to visit family and friends.

Holidays are a time when most of us put work on the backburner along with our projects. We see this time as the family first. We tend to focus more than ever on helping others and giving back. We laugh and enjoy life as we are more relaxed. We tend to work 80% of the time and enjoy our lives 20%, but during the year-end holiday time, our time spent is reversed. And, when we look at our lives, we have so much for which to be thankful.

Give Thought
  • What if we kept this lifestyle where we enjoyed our lives, our families, and helped others more?
  • Where we worked 20% of the time and enjoyed our lives and gave back to the community 80% of the time?

Although many people enjoy their jobs and careers, it’s not true for everyone. If you are in a job or career where you feel trapped or constrained, and anything but happy, it may be time for a change. And if you are only working for money without the feeling of fulfillment, that’s not a healthy choice.

It is possible to feel as if you have it all. At PWIC, our work is about helping other people, and we make our work fun. We also put family first.
