5 Steps to Uncovering Your Purpose

Our careers tend to play a significant role in defining our identities. It's often a reflection of our strengths, our values, our contributions.

We want our work to inspire us, to have purpose. We want that Simon Sinek-kind-of-Why. A purpose that goes beyond ourselves.

Though, sometimes this desire for purpose can lead to what The Atlantic is calling 'Workism,' a sometimes unhealthy obsession with work and meaning.

As someone who has sought to both uncover my why and cultivate a healthier relationship with my career, I'm sharing the ideas that have resonated most.

While I certainly don't have the definitive answer, below is a series of the things I have learned about this elusive thing called purpose. A bit more about me here.
