Seven Steps on how to find your purpose at work

My seven steps on how to find your purpose at work are below. Which one works best for you?

1 Go where the energy flows. What projects brings you alive? Start there.

2 When do you enter flow most easily? What topics do you lose yourself in?

3 What intrigues you the most? In what function is your curiosity piqued?

4 Where do you excel? What results come easily to you?

5 What do you enjoy the most? Whats fun and feels like play to you?

6 What do you look forward to doing?

7 What topics are you most drawn to?

If a project, function or topic hits one or more of the above, you are on the right path to finding your purpose at work.

Enjoy exploring!

No, really, lean in

I went to this talk by Lazlo Block in May, quite some time ago (sorry, I tweeted but forgot to blog). It was a close call between seeing Lazlo and going to a gender lecture. In the end, I decided to go to the talk where I knew least about the speaker- to learn new ideas.

I wasn’t disappointed. Lazzlo was full of ideas about work. He is the VP for People Operations at google, so Human Resources. He had a lot to say about his own journey, getting to google and where google is going next. All chronicled in his book Work Rules.

A hugely likeable and charismatic speaker, (he once worked as an actor), but don’t let that fool you, he had some hard hitting messages. My favourites were:

  • work really hard. not hard, but super hard. that will cover most things
  • work with the best and learn all you can, so you can work hard some more
  • leadership is about others not you
  • but know why you want to lead, what contribution you want to make and be authentic.

Enjoy!
