It’s Monday again, but I probably didn’t need to tell you that. Only five more days of work until the weekend! We’ve just got to get through this work week and then we can get back to our real lives next weekend.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Well what if you could change that? What if you looked forward to your work? What if you woke up energized each morning excited to head to the office?
No seriously. Imagine getting paid good money to do something you love. What would that be like?
I can tell you from experience that it’s awesome! I don’t mean to brag, but I love what I do and the company I work for. Every day I have the opportunity to do work I’m passionate about with an amazing team.
Some people luck into these work situations, but if you’d rather not risk waking up in cubicle prison then I suggest you take charge.
Finding Work You Love
I could condense all the career wisdom I’ve learned over the last two years into a 500 word post, but that wouldn’t help you out – Not real help anyway.
Instead I recommend you buy, borrow, or checkout Dan Miller’s book 48 Days To The Work You Love. It’s a fun, inspiring read that includes a simple process to help you land your dream job. Dan has coached thousands of people through the process of finding meaningful work and he’s incredibly talented.
Simple, Not Easy
This book is exactly how I found my job at Invodo. I’ll be the first to admit it challenged me big time. I had to step out of my comfort zone and do a lot of things I’d never done before. It wasn’t easy!
But I believe strongly that finding meaningful work impacts a lot more than just how I spent 40 hours a week. Loving your work brings energy, meaning, and greatness to other areas of your life far away from the office.
So if anyone can read this book and turn their work into a positive part of their lives, why do so many people still hate their jobs?
Like I said, it wasn’t easy. I’ve had many friends who have read the 48 Days book and haven’t turned it into a great job. It’s hard work, and without a supportive community it’s sometimes difficult to make yourself get out on that limb.
So I’m excited to be hosting Dan Miller’s 48 Days To The Work You Love Workshop. This process has changed my life greatly and I’m stoked to help guide others through it too!
In this workshop we’ll uncover what is wrong with “work” in today’s world and learn the path to true, meaningful, fulfilling, and life-rewarding “Vocation.” You’ll learn how to:
- Discover your God-given and perhaps buried talents
- Embrace the gift of meaningful work
- Find job possibilities that never appear online
- Learn from the shared life stories of those already living the 48 days principles
- Find your IDEAL WORK – and LOVE it!
