The Fine Art of Finding Your Calling, With Jeff Goins Good Life Project

    • Self-Improvement

"Your activity needs to flow from your identity."
It seems that A LOT of people struggle with the question, "What should I do with my life?"
So I was really interested to have a conversation with today's guest, Jeff Goins, because that very question is at the heart of his new book, The Art of Work.
Interestingly, he ended up re-writing entire book after realizing he had sanitized his own story of becoming a writer, and needed to find and share a deeper set of truths.
In this conversation, we also talk about the idea of polymaths - multi-talented people - and what a "portfolio life" is.
If you've ever wondered what your calling is (and if you have one), you'll find this episode with Jeff Goins very interesting.
Some questions I ask:
How do you define vocation?Is there just one purpose for each of us to accomplish in life?What is a "portfolio life"?Can you master multiple talents? Or just practice them?What do you think about leaving a legacy?
