[MMM] Finding The Right Work Situation

Nov 28, 2016 – The “Fit” Edition

Happy Monday Morning!


I heard a great quote recently: “On the other side of complexity lies simplicity”.


Being in the right work situation is complex.


I have spent the majority of my professional career, researching, writing, speaking, coaching and working in the real world with real people. Much of my time has been spent on the question about how to find and define the elements that make work great.


I want to share three simple thoughts that help us to arrive in this place of daily contentment.


1. We need to be doing interesting work that aligns with who we are.

2. We need to be working for a leader we admire, respect and who calls out our very best.

3. We need to be rewarded in a way that supports the kind of life we desire.


It is this very simple mix of elements that will help your align yourself with work that is a fit for you. The complexity lies in delving through these 3 components as an individual, not through a formula like the Myers Briggs work type.


You are complex, your career options are also complex and work should feel challenging and satisfying.

There is simplicity on the other side of the working through these important three principles.


Along the road with you!
