Sense of purpose...... My entire life I worked in physical labor, a desk job was not for me. I accomplished many personal challenges in my line of work. As a heavy equipment operator in the mining industry and also side jobs the feeling of satisfaction and knowledge that I acquired over the years has calmed my sense of purpose. I never used an alarm clock ever in my life for 40 yrs. Waking up at 4:00am and coming home at 4:00pm I always seen people in other professions with suits and tie and wondered why am I in a job with so much dirt and grease. The reason was this was my comfort zone that I grew into. Now that I am retired I look back and feel proud that the purpose of work was to provide for my family, house ,cars, etc. . To really enjoy the purpose of life you must understand the purpose of work.
