Are you part of something elegant and meaningful?

I've written recently about finding the purpose behind what you do. Here is a more specific example of how it can be put into action.

Think about how you want to spend your time. What criteria do you use? Your time is valuable. As you get older, the value becomes more pronounced. You may find that you apply a more rigorous examination to determine if an effort is worth your time.

So what kind of criteria should you apply? Here is a question that could help you gauge if you want to get involved in an effort:

Is this effort an opportunity to do something elegant and meaningful?

Elegant is defined as something that simplifies or streamlines a user experience so your audience is nothing short of delighted by the interaction with you.

Meaningful is defined as being part of an effort that has the potential to make a difference in the lives of your audience.

I can’t think of a better way to spend time than being part of something elegant and meaningful.
