Happen To Your Career

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.

Think quitters never get ahead?

Think again. Quitting just might be one of the most overlooked and useful tools in the process of discovering the work you were meant to do!
