MERAKI: a word derived from the Turkish word Merak and is a verb or adverb in modern Greek literature.
It refers to putting something of yourself into your work; soul, creativity and love.
Everything that we do contributes to our personal brand. Perceptions, assumptions and thoughts are conceived by how we present ourselves, be it through our appearance, manner in which we conduct ourselves (behaviour) or our work.
To merely do something for the sake of doing is like leading a life with no purpose or direction. What’s the point?
I say that It is for this reason, that we must do all things Meraki; with sincerity, passion, love, soul and creativity. Every piece of work we put out must have that personal touch. It must ooze authenticity. This is a message I echo to my team at work and it serves as a reminder to me.
So whether you’re in the arts, the Corporate world, medical field, or whether you’re a teacher, administrator, book keeper or even a call Centre agent… Do all things with Meraki.
Love and light always, from just an ordinary girl.
