Human Spirit...at Work?

A couple months ago, I wrote about forgiveness at work.

This morning on my train ride to New York, I started reading John Scherer's book Work and the Human Spirit, where he has a great line:

"...the quality of work we do cannot be separated from the quality of 'self' we manage to create in our lives."

What is this "quality of self?" And how do we find it?

That's what John's work has been about for over thirty years. His book (which I strongly recommend) is a wonderfully uplifting and moving description of how he has worked with many people on these questions.

It's a process of growing self-awareness, of shifting some things around at a deep level within the self, and an acceptance of who we are meant to be and what we are meant to do.
