In a world focused on the bottom line, does common decency pay dividends?

Have you noticed that we live in a world that suggests to us that more is better, and equates wealth with possession? Have you wondered what that has to do with living a meaningful life? In the quest for “more,” when is enough, enough?

Brian Portnoy sums up what he calls “the four enduring sources of a joyful life.”

Connection – the need to belong.
Control – the need to direct one’s own destiny.
Competence – the need to be good at something worthwhile.
Context – the need for a purpose outside oneself.

He goes on to show that true wealth and purpose can be woven together to create “funded contentment.” If you want to put a new perspective on how and why you’re doing what you do, add this one to your reading list.
