Hey folks 👋 this week, we’re going to explore the somewhat mind field topic of the pursuit of happiness in careers and ultimately life.
So SPOILER!, I don’t have the answer to eternal happiness but (as you can imagine) I do have some thoughts to share on this, specifically from my work in career development.
I’ve had more conversations than I can count where people tell me they just want to be happy in their chosen career path. Of course, this is an admirable and often universally shared goal amongst society. Yet, it is also a terrible metric to use and the concept happiness is so misunderstood that people often feel miserable no matter what they do in their careers.
In this one, we’re going to talk about decoding the concept of happiness, looking at deeper into our emotional wants and better metrics for our individual career (and life) success.

🤔 Exploring intentional learning and how to make it happen.
