A couple of weeks ago, I spoke at an event about finding your life’s work and how finding it can change everything. But I had to give this disclaimer:
This process takes a long time. Though I’m going to give you a foundation for thinking about your life’s work and some tools to get you started, you have to be patient. It’s a journey to be taken, not a problem to be solved.
Finding more passion, more purpose, and more meaning in your work and life is a process of identity formation. It’s a process of discovering more of who you are and what you have to offer the world.
It’s not a problem to be solved simply, and it can’t be found in quick quizzes, a single blog post, or even a whole book. It’s something that you learn and discover over time.
The challenge with any large undertaking like this is that it can be overwhelming. And we can be impatient. Where do you start? What can you do now to actually make a difference?
There is a lot that you can do. You can even start on it today. You can start right now, in fact— if you have a few more minutes.
