The Strange World of Business

HBS Working Knowledge: Organizations: Spirit at Work: The Search for Deeper Meaning in the Workplace

I don't know what I find stranger - that the business world is
reaching out into all these different branches of human knowledge and
experience not traditionally associated with business, or that business
has historically been so divorced from all other aspects of life that
didn't focus around profits and aquisitions.

This article is ver interesting in that gives a very clear example
of what seems to be happening more and more: business in search of
meaning. Earning a living so consumes our lives, and though many see
this as not necessarily possitive, it's not going away anytime soon. As
a result, people are becoming very (deperately?) interested in
revitalizing or redefining bread-winning.

I continue to observe and look forward to each new unfolding in this process...
