When Being “Good At” Your Role Doesn’t Lead To Career Happiness
Laura spent nearly a decade in a career that didn’t fit her.
She figured being good at math and in a family of engineers meant she’d enjoy the field, too. But as the years went on, the work never felt right.
“I had to hide the part of myself that wasn’t engaged and super passionate anymore. I would put on this extroverted fake smile at work and come home and be unhappy,” she notes.
Sometimes Avoiding Passion Is Critical To Career Happiness
Dan Pink — NY Times Bestselling author of books like Drive and When — went from being a speechwriter for Al Gore to one of the world’s leading voices on the science of career happiness.
I sat down with Dan to figure out how to be okay with un-passion, why WHEN we work matters, and what really leads to career happiness.

Executive Burnout To Ideal Career: Get Unstuck And Find A New Career Path
Michael had been an executive at Sony entertainment for many years. It was a great career for him.
Until it wasn’t.
The absolutely crazy thing is that in all his years working for Sony, even though he enjoyed lots of pieces of it, he’d never realized that work could be something that was fun.
He was able to get unstuck and find a new career path that did fit him.
As I talked with Michael, it was evident how much life had changed for him in the last two years.
How To Leverage Curiosity During Career Change
