Because I talk a lot about career and the importance of finding your purpose, sometimes I get this question:
Do your career and purpose have to coincide?
The answer is NO! Your purpose can have nothing to do with what you do for a living. Finding purpose, meaning, and fulfillment in other areas of your life is critical.
But my take is you spend so much time at work. You spend some much energy thinking about work. Why not try to integrate the two as much as possible?
It won’t always be a perfect fit, but I bet you can get closer than where you are right now.
Here’s some free coaching for the weekend: Think of 3 jobs you could do that would start to fulfill your purpose.
And if you don’t know your purpose, feel free to reach out to me so I can help you figure it out.
