One of the most important aspects of a career that makes you happy is…
When you see personal and professional growth you have a deeper understanding of your purpose.
You see what you were able to accomplish and how it helped.
I recently had the privilege to talk with Barbara Mistick for my Domino Experience podcast. Barbara is the President of Wilson College. A seasoned veteran of teaching young people to do work that they care about.
One of my favorite stories is how one student almost dropped out until she understand one important fact about college.
We also covered these topics:
- The importance of happiness at work.
- Taking responsibility for your own career.
- Carving out time to learn something new to grow your career.
- Expanding in the fear. (Where the biggest growth happens)
- Be prepared when the unexpected happens.
- Learning a living.
- What you can learn from a bad boss.
Think about 5 people that you know that have helped you grow personally or professionally over this past 12 months. Go and reach out to them. See if you can help them in some way.
Relationships do matter. The more you work at building stronger relationships the more you will be able to grow your career.
