Laura spent nearly a decade in a career that didn’t fit her.

She figured being good at math and in a family of engineers meant she’d enjoy the field, too. But as the years went on, the work never felt right.

“I had to hide the part of myself that wasn’t engaged and super passionate anymore. I would put on this extroverted fake smile at work and come home and be unhappy,” she notes.

Tune in to today’s episode to learn how Laura regained her confidence and landed her dream job while staying true to herself.

Dan Pink — NY Times Bestselling author of books like Drive and When — went from being a speechwriter for Al Gore to one of the world’s leading voices on the science of career happiness. 

 

I sat down with Dan to figure out how to be okay with un-passion, why WHEN we work matters, and what really leads to career happiness. 

That’s because he literally wrote the book (Drive) about the science of what motivates us as people. And he found some interesting stuff:

 

 

  • Like how we’re more driven by making a contribution to something than we are to live in our passions
  • How passion really is an unsustainable feeling - it’s an intense emotion that can only be held for so long
  • What science shows about when you do your best work

 

 

So, if you’ve been pursuing your passion but have come up short, tune in to this episode to discover a new path.

Michael had been an executive at Sony entertainment for many years. It was a great career for him.

Until it wasn’t.

The absolutely crazy thing is that in all his years working for Sony, even though he enjoyed lots of pieces of it, he’d never realized that work could be something that was fun.

He was able to get unstuck and find a new career path that did fit him.

As I talked with Michael, it was evident how much life had changed for him in the last two years.

What’s better? Being a specialist or a generalist? Are you better off having a deep body of knowledge or a wide set of experiences? This comes up in conversations I have all the time. 

My question is why not both?

Alyson faced a big challenge as she navigated a career change. 

She did all the work to identify what she really wanted in her life and a career, but as Alyson started to search for open positions, she realized that what she was looking for didn’t always match up with what companies said they were looking for.

Most people don’t make a career change because they’re worried about what they might lose by making a change. Listen to this conversation to hear how Alyson avoided that problem entirely!
