Investing our time and talents in a meaningful job as well as doing work that really matter to us could make the world a different place. Scott Dinsmore, the career change strategist and CEO of Live Your Legend, strives to inspire us to find the pathway to that new world where people do work they love.
His demoralising work experience at a Fortune 500 job was enough for him to realise why 80% of adults hate their work, and more importantly, to find out what the other 20% were doing differently. Dinsmore came up with the Passionate Work framework; that is three simple things that can help you make passionate work possible.
The first step of this framework is becoming a self expert and understanding yourself. We should navigate ourselves towards what our life goals and purposes. This process involves identifying our unique strengths, values, which people or things inspire us so as to ultimately define what success means to us.
The next step involves pushing your limits to achieve the impossible. The truth is that everything was impossible until somebody did it. No idea that we have in mind is unattainable, it is just a few miles away from reality.
Last but not least, the best way to achieve the impossible is to surround yourself with passionate people who really understand you and who you want to become. These are not only people doing the same job you love, but they are also individuals with which you can build momentum for real change.
