Work Dope is all about the sticky messy side … the human side of work … mostly corporate work… Work Dope is for people who work in all levels within corporate, and wish that it didn't have to suck so much. It's for folks who really do want to have a meaningful experience at work, but run into regular frustration; frustration due to what often feels like absurd policy, absurd structure, absurd promotions, or absurd people. Work Dope seeks to provide tips and techniques for better navigation of work-life, but even better, Work Dope is a place for honest discussion (discovery, exploration) on sticky topics that sometimes get avoided. It's for topics that people at the top just don't see -- (ergo topics that never get addressed). Work Dope is a place to learn new ways to be creative, engaged, and interested with one's work, and with one's co-workers (even the ones we wish would disappear).

    EP14: Dopamine and Work - Does Our Biological Drive to Feel Good Interfere with Best Work, or Create It??

    EP14: Dopamine and Work - Does Our Biological Drive to Feel Good Interfere with Best Work, or Create It??

    Work Dope is a podcast on the messiness, and the potential, of humans, at work. In this episode, I riff on ideas around dopamine and consider if our growing reliance on “quick-hit” events might be impacting us at work.
    I talk about:
    Implications around our expectations at work; how do we get through work that is the opposite of "feel good" … and light years from euphoric?Implications on our ability to connect with what matters … how to prioritize *worthy* activities vs the opposite: seeking quick hit work activities or distractions over more challenging, long term projectsExamples of how to pre-pave towards less reliance on "quick hits" for the afternoon slump and managing workflows.... And even the quick hits that come from bitching with co-workersLeaning in towards enrichment over quick hits and distracting activities - how do we "suck the marrow out of life" (and work)... engaging in ways that leave us lifted (even if energy depleted - the good kind of energy drain) rather than leaving us spent, empty, or at worst, numbI hope you enjoy this episode and, if you do, please leave a review on iTunes, or whatever platform you use for podcasts.
