Work, vocation, and joy
A little from the book Mystic Microsoft on when Kraig, still an atheist, found his mission at Microsoft.
Yes, that was it! I felt joy and I wanted to share it! And by sharing it, I wanted more than anything to awaken that joy in others. This, I realized, was my real mission at Microsoft, even, in a sense, my personal ministry. My position within Developer Relations, my responsibilities, the very technologies I worked with—everything!—these were vehicles not for The Gospel, but for sharing joy. After all, joy is what we are all really seeking in every activity. To lovingly share one's inner light and awaken joy in the hearts of others is perhaps our highest outward responsibility as human beings.
