I once worked in
a HUGE telecommunications company.
One of my coworkers
was grumping about
how his job was meaningless.
I piped up and told him
he was changing the world.

“How am I changing the world?”
he muttered.
“I’m selling phones.”

“You’re not selling phones,”
I pointed out.
“You’re making it easier
for people to talk to each other,
to communicate.
Wars have been prevented
with more communication.”

The Sales Blog has an absolutely wonderful post
on why sales or any other position you take
can be meaningful work.

As The Sales Blog states…

“The only thing
that makes work meaningful
is that it makes some contribution
to helping other human beings.
That’s it.”
