The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.’ –H. D. Thoreau
‘Work’ and, more importantly, ‘Meaningful Work.’ That’s our topic, for this onetime, online forum.
In a prompt-led, guided conversation to take place on our website in a protected-page post, and comment threads, there, we’ll explore this idea more roundly.
- What is work?
- What does ‘meaningful‘ even mean?
- What is useful for each of us, when what we call ‘work’ is working?
Register to confirm, and we’ll send the syllabus, from there.
WHAT IT IS. A one-time, very limited seat online forum. Max 6.
HOW IT WORKS. This forum will take plae in a real time, synchronized chat + forum online. You’ll get an outline of questions and the agenda, so you can think about them ahead of time. We’ll also provide a recap with follow up links, so you can discuss further with the other attendees in the forum, after the event, too.
WHO IT IS FOR. This is designed for no more than 6 people, who are asking questions about the nature of work and changing models that can be applied immediately, in order to better engage with ohers in doing things that count.
