Stepping Stones to Fulfillment [Dream Job Coaching]

Fulfillment @ Work

   March 21, 2005
   ISSN: 1533-3906



It's easy to follow a paved road to your destination, but sometimes the path to fulfillment isn't all that well marked. That's when we need to look for a few well-placed stepping stones to point the way.

In this week's Fulfillment Tips, I've laid down five stepping stones, touching on personal as well as career-related suggestions.

Pay special attention to Stepping Stone #5. It's a concept that many of us struggle with, but that pays big dividends when we learn to do it well!

Please let me know about any stepping stones that have helped you move forward in your search for fulfillment. Email me anytime.

Stepping Stones to Fulfillment
by Joel Garfinkle

1. Find your wisdom from within. You can’t know how to improve the job you have or get the job you love unless you know what you want. It’s important to look within rather than outside yourself. Know yourself and your likes and dislikes, what turns you on and gives you enjoyment.

2. Have a balanced life based on a strong personal foundation - one of balance and alignment to self. Develop a life outside of work -- view work and life as an integral whole.

3. What really matters is having a purpose. People don’t just want a paycheck or to just keep busy at work. They want to have a purpose within their work.

4. Don’t do what you are good at; do what you love. Just because you are good at your job doesn’t mean it will give you fulfillment.

5. Invest in yourself. Be willing to spend time, energy, and money to create a truly fulfilling work and personal life. Sometimes you need to prime the pump to start the flow of abundance through your life.
