WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO FIND MEANING IN LIFE AND WORK
It amazes me how many people I talk to, even those well into advanced, seemingly rewarding careers, are actually not happy. Just within the past four weeks I’ve had a number of my closest friends communicate this to me. These are people who are years into outstanding careers, who have advanced degrees, people who I respect and admire for their accomplishments in life and the success they’ve had in their careers.
But they’re just not happy.
Most often this is derived from a decoupling of your pursuits from your personality. This is happening with painful frequency, and is extremely expensive.
It’s expensive to the world in terms of lost productivity. It also comes at great cost to you personally, in terms of diminished happiness, lost opportunities, and the fact that you just won’t reach peak performance until you’re doing something you love to do.
Is this you? Have you found yourself thinking recently about how much you’d rather be doing something else? Do you know someone who is currently going through this?
I’m dedicating the week to this topic—longer if necessary.
We’ll be deconstructing the problem as we would an engineering problem. We’ll analyze the constraints. We’ll discuss the principles and methods you can use to chart a new trajectory. A trajectory that moves you towards something vastly more fulfilling, towards a future where your pursuits are perfectly aligned with your personality.
We’ll discuss the various obstacles you will certainly face and how to overcome them. We’ll put together a step-by-step guide to finding meaning and reward.
I hope you’ll join us. If you know of anyone who is in a similar stage of life, please invite them to join in the journey and participate in the discussions.
