Maria Montessori on Being Useful

Welcome to Make Daily! This email contains an idea, reflection, and a simple action you can take on your work today.


Idea 💡

"The consciousness of knowing how to make oneself useful, how to help mankind in many ways, fills the soul with noble confidence, almost religious dignity."

— Maria Montessori

Reflection 🤔

Finding fulfillment in your work comes from one place: Contributing something uniquely useful.

Most of the time we are more concerned if the work will make us happy or how difficult it will be. These are bad starting points...

Satisfying work comes from contributing something positive that no one else could have in a moment of need.

Action ✅

Where is the pursuit of passion or happiness falling short? Try being useful instead.

About the creator 👤

Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name, and her writing on scientific pedagogy.
