When you wake up on a weekday morning, are you excited about your work week ahead? Or, like so many working people, do you dread going to the job? You may be asking yourself: Is this what I’m really meant to do? Is this why I worked so hard in college? Is this all there is? A recent Gallup survey shows only 31 percent of American workers are “engaged” at their job. Now consider this: the average American worker will spend 92,120 hours of their life working. That is far too much of your life to not love your job.
What can Carlos the Burrito Man teach us about finding our “passion,” our “purpose,” our “calling?” What can he teach us about finding the work we love? Get off the computer and go. Go do that now. Go make a difference. And if you can’t do it where you’re at, then go find a place where you can. But for gosh sake, go do something. Go be something. The world needs you, and it needs you more than anything. Whatever you do, don’t let your gift die within you.
