This podcast is a reflection on last week’s episode with Jacqui Lewis. I explore two ideas Jacqui and I spoke about:

 

1. That we should be building our work around the life we want to live (and not the other way around).

As we grow up we are always asked what do we want to be? What do we want to do? But we are rarely asked about the kind of life we want to live. 

Part of the Good Work Revolution is about asking ourself this question. We can't just do work for the sake of others and forget about ourselves.

 

2. That there are some kinds of success that actually do not serve us.

It is easy to find ourselves on a path where we are experiencing success - but success defined by what and who? If we are to think about what we really want in life - is it really success? It can be incredibly difficult to walk away from the kinds of success society tells us we should strive for and reach for our own version of success.

 

Both Jacquie's journey and my own have examples of both these points in them.  I share some of my own stories, as well as some thoughts on how you might explore this for yourself.

 

The Good Work Revolution Podcast is for people who are creating businesses, shaping new careers, building social enterprises. Who are creating new ways of working, embracing a multi-passionate work life, working their way, exploring entrepreneurship, changing organisations for the better and so much more.

Reflecting on last week's episode with Christian Duell, I dive into an idea we explored in our conversation on how our purpose is not fixed. It is something that can bend and change over time.

 

I also look at the idea of using projects to explore your purpose: to approach the idea of finding your purpose as an experiment as opposed to a journey with an end point. Finally, I explore playing with and evolving your purpose as you grow as a person and chip away the parts of you that no longer serve you.

Reflecting on last week's conversation with Julie Parter, I delve into the concept of identity and how aligning our work and identity can improve our wellbeing and step us closer to fulfilling and inspiring businesses and careers.

"It's just not me". Have you ever used this line about your work? It's something I've heard a lot. So why is this such a big thing? And if our work doesn't feel aligned, what can we do? Or as leaders, managers or employers - what can we do to help our employees with this?
