Before you go back to work in September, take the rest of August reflect and reset you career path to align to what is most meaningful to you. You deserve to LOVE your work. Join me for Bright Livelihoods Summer Vocation Camp.
For over 20 years, I have studied people who have made the choice to clarify and pursue their passions and purpose. I believe anyone who is willing to do this deep work can find their Soul Work. Soul Work is the best use of your passions and purpose. In assessing whether or not you are on the path to Soul Work and career fulfillment, see how many on this list of ten things YOU can say yes to:
- When you are at work, you often lose track of time instead of watching the clock.
- You enjoy reading your trade publications or other information about your field.
- You can imagine a positive future in your career.
- You have colleagues at your job or in the same field who you respect and admire.
- Either you are doing your dream work currently or the work you are doing now is a necessary step in creating dream work.
- Your loved ones, including the young people in your life, know what you do and have a sense you love it.
- You don’t cringe when people ask you what you do. You enjoy talking about your work.
- You know what you love to do.
- You are willing to take risks to do what you love.
- You have a sense that no matter how long you are on this career track you have more to learn and master, and that prospect is exciting to you.
Most people will find that there are very few items on that list that describe their current outlook. If that is the case for you, you may be ready for a change in course. The good news is that the sooner you work on creating a new path, the more likely it is you will have more career satisfaction the future. Here are a few suggestions for next steps:
- Seek out people who love their work and learn from their experience in how they found their “thing.”
- Begin researching projects, jobs and educational opportunities that will expose you to new passions and new fields.
- Register for one of our free webcasts called Summer Vocation Camp this month so you can get on the road to Soul Work
