Happiness is figuring out what it is that you love to do – and then figuring out a way to do that more often.

For you, maybe it’s spending time with your kids ..

… or gardening …

… or learning …

Gary Vaynerchuk wrote a whole book on essentially figuring out what you are passionate about and making that into a business.

I am not going to go that far …. not all passions can really be leveraged into a paying gig.

Reading Jane Austen, for example.

But I do believe that there is at least 1 thing that you were put on this earth to do.

Many of us have Renaissance souls and can’t limit ourselves to just one thing….

…. but there IS at least 1 thing – activity, subject, pasttime, vocation, etc – that really is a passion and really is our GREAT WORK.

Every day I feel like I’m learning more and more and getting closer and closer to what makes me happy …

My ‘day job’ is what gets in the way of most of it.

I would be perfectly happy spending my days reading, writing, doing photography and taking care of my house and husband. (How house-wifely, I know. But I genuinely enjoy cooking…. and while I don’t particularly like cleaning I know it makes Andrew happy when I do) …

Pretty much all of my time (outside of the ‘day job’) is spent doing these things …

… and I am not at all ashamed to admit that (outside of the ‘day job’) I am so so happy….

In my new online workshop – Onward and Upward – we’ll be spending quite a bit of time figuring out what our GREAT WORK is, and figuring out how to make it a larger part of our lives.

Pre-registration will be opening in a few weeks, so make sure you’re on the mailing list for details.

    Your posts are very timely. Many days, they are a blurb of information I need for the day. Sometimes it’s encouragement, information, or a kick in the pants. Today is a bit of all three. Thank you for writing this blog.
