I love this article, Monique. You do such a great job of making theory accessible and offering an illustrative and realistic example. As I’ve immersed myself in the job crafting (and JD-R) literature, I’ve felt a need for more examples of what it actually looks like in practice.
I have a couple of other observations, but rather than be long-winded, I’d like to ask you something that I think is fundamental to understanding the role of meaning: What is “meaning”? Is it the same as, or distinguishable from, “purpose”?
