Your career can be defined simply as, your life’s work. I have always believed that each individual has a purpose and value to add to the world- whatever that may be. Perhaps, your purpose or value is accounted for via your career. This is certainly a possibility since we spend more than half of our day working. How can this not have an impact on our health and wellbeing?!
When a job is fulfilling, it recharges you mentally, physically, and emotionally. This doesn’t mean you should quit your current job and start all over again. You could do some soul searching or, more realistically, you could fine tune your current career to make it more fulfilling for you. Everyone finds fulfillment in different ways- some find it by being able to support themselves and their families financially, others find it by truly enjoying the work they are doing.
Sadly, some folks spend a lifetime in a career that doesn’t align with who they are as a person, their values, and beliefs. Where do you stand? The questions below may give you more clarity around career:
1. What does your current career mean to you?
2. Is your career just a means for a paycheck or do you see meaning in your work?
3. Do you wake up each morning excited to begin your work?
4. Does your career align with your goals/purpose?
5. On a scale of 1-10, what is your level of satisfaction (10 being the most satisfied)?
"Nothing is more creative...or destructive...than a brilliant mind with a purpose." - Dan Brown
