happy is by doing meaningful work. When we do work, that in some way, makes the

occupation or career path one selects often becomes a significant part of how
they define themselves.
The unique skills, expertise, and experiences gained through work shape a person’s identity and contribute to a sense of self-worth. Moreover, the sense of identity derived from work extends beyond personal growth; it enables individuals to communicate their values and aspirations to others. As people invest time and effort into a particular line of work, they cultivate a distinct perspective and set of values, which ultimately contribute to the mosaic of human diversity and culture.
