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.
