On finding fulfilling work
How to find fulfilling work is one of the most urgent questions in modernity. A question that we all face, particularly living in expensive, competitive and hectic urban environments. This basic question of modern life is, then, one that we really ought to consider if we are to live well. In this self-coaching guide, I offer a simple framework for engaging in this enquiry. A framework that is built around four fundamental questions, whose exploration almost certainly will yield a conclusion.
These ideas were born out of numerous career-related sessions I have done as a coach over the past 5 years. And, out of my own experience of seeking fulfilling work and deciding to go solo after 9 years in the City as a Private Equity investor.
The four questions explored here are:
1) What are my real motivations for working?
2) What would I do if money wasn’t a problem?
3) How will I put food on the table?
4) What do I definitely NOT want to do?
Together, they form a guide for creating your own personal path towards fulfilling work.
As you read, allow yourself to really take the time to think through the four questions and the various sub-questions therein. This is not something that I recommend you rush. For, the fruitfulness of the reading will be proportional to the extent and depth of your enquiry.
