Trying Out a New Community Perk

Fun bonus for you

Fun bonus for you

I want to keep things fun and lively around Work Happy Now. As you know I love helping people work happier and build connections. It’s why I wake up in the morning. Well, that and coffee and a kiss from my amazing wife and my silly hearted son.

Sometimes I get so caught up in helping my current clients that I forget to step outside my comfort zone. So I’m proposing over the next 3 months I’m going to give away one “pay whatever you can afford” career strategy session each month. It’s a $250 value. You’ll get an hour with me to ask me any questions you may have about how you can move your career forward so you can do more of the work you love.

If you can only afford $10 then that’s fine. The reason I’m choosing not to give them away for free is because when people pay something (anything, whatever they can afford), they are more likely to take this as an opportunity instead of a freebie. They will own the journey and take action on what we discussed.

I’ll give the money, however much you decide, to the Cancer Research Institute and Sierra Club Foundation. Both are close to my heart.

If it goes well and people love it then I might continue depending on how much time I have. I’m working on a big January launch and I have a baby due in 5 weeks, so I can’t promise I’ll extend it.

What do you think?

Does this interest you? If so just fill out this 5 minute form and you’ll be given the chance to win a “pay whatever you can afford” career strategy session for the month of December.

Thanks,

Karl

P.S. Stay tuned for a fun Black Friday offer. I promise you won’t have to wait in line to purchase this amazing deal.

How to Get Your Spark Back

Career Spark

Career Spark

One of the biggest mistakes people make is they stop attempting new challenges in their career. They coast and then start to hate their job.

The key to getting the spark back in your career is to look at how you view your work. I had a client who lost her spark and couldn’t find it.

She told me, “I don’t care if I get fired. No. I hope I get fired.”

I remember this conversation very vividly. I’ve been there.

I asked her, “Why don’t you quit?”

“I can’t.”

“Why not?”

“Because I need to support my family.”

“So do you really want to get fired?”

“Well, no, but if I got fired I would be forced to find something better.”

“Could you do that right now?”

“Yeah, but…” she trailed off.

She was afraid of taking a big step. The big step of making a change.

We are all afraid of big steps. That’s why people who take little steps that add up to big steps are more successful. They see the first little step and take the step. They don’t see 12 little steps as one big step.

They take it one step at a time, and before they know it, they’ve gone 12 little steps and the first big step is accomplished. They can see what little step they need to take next.

They don’t see their big goal as something unattainable. They see their goal in little steps that when put together help them get close to their goal.

It’s why I tell clients to stop setting goals and create projects instead. If a project fails, they can toss it aside and create a new project. If a project succeeds, then they create the next project to help create another layer to support their greater vision.

The key is to layer each project so they build upon each other. A domino effect that adds to your career momentum and happiness.

Your work either supports or tears down your happiness. It’s up to you to take back control of your career and turn it into something that you want to share with your colleagues, friends and family.

I believe that we are all meant to do great work that helps people we care about. If we don’t do work that matters, then we stop trying to do great work. Meaning in our work matters. It’s important to find the connection that matters to you.

If you are looking to create a meaningful career that impacts people’s lives, I suggest you start with the email course that I have set-up call Unlock Your Career Passions. It’s helped thousands of people so far. You should probably join in on the career boosting fun if you haven’t already.

Why Is Purpose so Important to Your Happiness?

Contemplating Life

I recently read an article that said, don’t follow your passions. What? I almost passed out. That’s stuff from the 1950’s. Ignore how you feel and just do the work. You can just be happy after you retire. How well has that worked for people over the last 80 years? Just look at the people […]
