Live a life of meaning. As a leadership communications trainer and coach, one of my primary tasks is to help businesspeople connect with their passion. My clients find these six questions particularly helpful:
One: What do you love most about your work? What percentage of your time is actually spent doing those things?
Two: How much do you believe in the work you are doing? Has that increased, decreased, or stayed the same over the past five years?
Three: Is there anything you’d rather be doing? If so, what is it?
Four: To what degree is your work compatible with the other parts of your life? Do you have balance in your life?
Five: What new ideas, information, technologies, or possibilities attract you now? Which ones would you like to integrate into your work life?
Six: What new things would you enjoy learning?
