Calling scale sum: 8-10
Living calling scale sum: 7-24
You are someone who generally has a clear sense of what your calling is. Around 21% of working adults feel this way and around 14% of college students feel this way. You also have some opportunities to live it out. This is common for many people who have a calling, but who for any number of reasons are not able to live it out within their current job. If this description fits you well, ask yourself: What might I be able to do in my current job to make it a better fit with my calling? In chapter 7 of MYJAC, we offer several techniques to help you craft your job so that it aligns more closely with your purpose in life and gives you more opportunities to make a positive difference in the world around you. These include relational crafting (e.g., building more meaningful connections with coworkers), task crafting (e.g., working to add tasks that are a good fit with your calling or subtracting those that aren’t), and cognitive crafting (e.g., reframing, refocusing, or recalibrating your view of the social function and impact of your job). Reviewing these techniques and taking a more active approach to craft your work tasks and environment may allow for a more meaningful and satisfying experience.
