Stay in The Tension

Every meaningful pursuit has one thing in common: the tension.

The tension between where you want to go, and where you are right now.  Between the time you need and the time you have.  Between what makes money and what makes meaning.  And on and on.

From Burned-Out to Bakery Founder with Michelle Savage

Michelle Savage is a friend and former client.  A few years ago she left her job and moved to Europe for few months, and dream about what would come next for her.  I had the chance to work with her one-on-one through that discernment process.  Since then she has been on quite a journey.

 

Today’s episode is a conversation that we shared recently while she was visiting Seattle.

 

I’m excited to share her story with you because her story isn’t that of an expert, but of a woman who has made some courageous choices to create work and a life that she believes in.  She’s still in process, and it’s beautiful to witness.

So often we learn about global problems and feel powerless to do anything about them. I love how Blythe’s work offers a way for anyone to help— for anyone to give their time, energy — to take what you have, by way of interests and opportunities, and put it to work for something big in the world.

She’s taking a problem that can feel far away, and offering an invitation to become part of the solution.

I left this conversation feeling inspired and encouraged. I’m so grateful for the work she does, and that she’s the one leading her organization

Why Most Dream Jobs Disappoint (and What to Do About It)

I have a friend who took her dream job a couple of years ago. She was thrilled. It was a job doing work that she dreamed of doing. The organization was doing the work that she felt called to. She would get to travel for a few weeks a few times a year to some really great locations. The role was a great fit for her.

It all felt too good to be true.

But it wasn’t. It was really that good!  For a while…
