It took me a long time to figure out what was really in it for me when it came to employment.
While I walked across the stage to get my high school diploma, I was cheering to myself that the part of my life under my control was finally here.
I had no idea what my work would be. I had no idea what I was going to go to college for, or what my real passions or interests were, but I knew I could expect great things from myself and the career I was about to set out on.
I knew my work would contribute to my happiness.
I’ve had about eight different job titles since that day (and more than that many employers).
During the first few, I wondered constantly what I’d done wrong, and why no one warned me in high school that it could all turn out so differently than I’d imagined.
By the fourth or fifth job, I figured this was just life, and it was probably a good call that parents and teachers made it sound exciting so we’d all stay in school.
When – at about-freaking-time - I finally found work and companies I loved (in two completely different industries), I thought at last it was my turn to know for myself what “career fulfillment” meant.
…And in each of those jobs, I still had days where I just wasn’t into it. In each of those jobs, I still found things I wanted to change.
Back then, I thought being happy as an employee was as simple as finding the employer who would give me the most things on my list of wishes. Like I said – it took me a long time to figure out what was actually in it for me.
Once I did, it changed me as an employee. And it also changed me.
I’m on a mission now.
I help employees to use their current job to achieve any goal, and the result is a fantastic win-win:
The employees get a life-changing, revolutionary approach to goal-achievement, that happens to come with a heaping side of happiness and fulfillment in their current job.
Their companies get happy, engaged, high-performers.
