Could I have your thoughts on work and purpose?

Hello lovely Brooke,
I am just working on purpose and I wanted your thoughts on the following.
I love the ides of creating purpose – rather than finding it, and that we are complete as we are without having to be or do anything more.
However where does working fit in to the scenario? Do you think we look to “find” our purpose and link it with our “work” to justify the hours we spend at work or on a career?

(BTW this work has perfectly and completely cleared up a bit of a longstanding judgement Ive been running with my partner who is completely unencumbered by a sense of altruistic purpose. I can actually admire that in him now, see it curiously as our difference rather than me thinking its something I should be a bit suspicious of.)
