Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Do What You Are Fitted For

My Writer’s Quote Wednesday pick for this week comes from Abraham Maslow in what I like to call: “Do What You Are Fitted For“:


I wasn’t going to post a Writer’s Quote this week  as I have a meeting to attend in exactly two minutes from now (I better write fast!). I was, however,  struck by Maslow’s words and I definitely had to share it. This is an interesting quote. I think we all have a unique skill that is given to us for the purpose of contributing to the world and until we learn what that ability is and how to live for that purpose; we will always feel incomplete in some way. A lot of people have succeeded a lot in their lives per the definition of man’s success and yet they are not content with the lives that they are living. I think it possible that each person has to eventually give up what they think is happiness and just do what he or she was fitted for. Some call this destiny, striving to master the ability to use the skillfulness in which we were  specifically created for as our contribution to the world. Something to think about.



“Abraham Harold Maslow was an American psychologist who was best known for creating Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory of psychological health predicated on fulfilling innate human needs in priority, culminating in self-actualization”
– Wikipedia
And that’s it for my contribution to Writer’s Quote Wednesday, hosted by Colleen of Silver Threading.

  1. I missed you last week and I am honored that you are contributing from work! 😉 I loved this quote and studied some of Maslow’s theories in college. I do agree with that need to do your calling. There is certainly something there! Love it! Self-actualisation, realizing your true calling! ❤
