If your job doesn't improve the world, improve your job. Here’s the book that shows how to make work meaningful.

Most jobs lack a compelling purpose. This deficiency makes us sluggish, disengaged, careless, disloyal, unhappy and unhealthy. Fortunately, there’s a way to free ourselves from the modern trap of meaningless labor without switching careers or quitting jobs. The scientifically validated practice of job purposing, which involves tilting everyday work toward meaningful contributions to others or societal causes, elevates ordinary work into a fulfilling venture. Do Good at Work weaves rigorous evidence, captivating stories, pen and ink illustrations and more than 100 real-world examples into concrete ways anybody in any job can ignite workplace purpose and consequently become more successful, fulfilled and happy.
