Sample text

Callings start where careers leave off. To experience a calling, a seeker has to delve under the surface of a career of busyness or sameness and find significance and a sense of lasting contribution. Such work demands developing a higher form of will. It takes a mindset and a heartset that is beyond the norm. Nearly two decades into a corporate career, most of it as a consultant, this well-known consultant and author had a conversation that took him past the doldrums. Peter Block described it to me this way: The work came closer to a calling about twenty-five years later [out of college].

Living with high intention in the roles we choose leads to the everyday greatness that can come with a portfolio of calls over the decades that mark our lives. History calls a few to greatness, but life calls all of us to make a difference in the situations we choose and into which we are sometimes thrown. Our talents and preferences may take us to thinking or feeling, or internal or external work, but opportunities to respond to life’s duties more completely and humanly, if sometimes in hiding, are always near.

The sales manager wanting to deliver a superior service and develop her people to the fullest. The engineer designing the best, safest, most efficient building. The parents patiently doing homework with their child. The social worker addressing one more difficult case. Unlike the mega-calls for the supertalented or saintly, a portfolio of everyday callings is at work for us at any particular time in our lives. One or two calls may take up most of our time—such as being a good parent and adding as much value as possible through our daily work—but other smaller calls—like staying true to a friend facing cancer and needing support—may also work their way into our lives.
