Have you ever had someone trying to dictate where you should go? In the car, in school, in life?
Or worse, did you let them tell you what to do even if you knew it wasn't the right move?
My guest on this week's podcast is Neha O'Rourke. She was in that place, searching for a way to have a career she loved.
She shared with me that we work 90,000 hours over our lifetime. No wonder so many of us want to be happy at our job. That's a lot of time spent away from our families, with other people, sharing our gifts and using our precious energy.
Some will say "a job isn't supposed to be fun", that's why they call it work.
But I say we spend WAY TOO MUCH time at work (or even at home), to not be happy doing that work, with people who lift us up.
I don't care if you're a stay at home mom (which is the HARDEST job in the world), or if you are the CEO of your company, working takes up the biggest part of our day. We'd be crazy not to want it to be joyful, at least part of the time.
We'd be crazy not to use our strengths, engaging others, creating and making the world a better place.
Somewhere in between no longer and not yet, was where the magic happened for Neha…listen in to found out how.
