When you were a child, you probably assumed that your future career would revolve around all the things you like the most. However, as you grew older, you likely moved to the opposite end of the spectrum and started to wonder whether anyone was really able to do work they truly loved.
This cynical perspective is common, and it is not groundless—especially given the toughness of today’s job market. However, don’t admit defeat just yet. There may well be things you can do to turn your life around.
In this TEDx talk, Scott Dinsmore wants to tell you about his mission to help ensure that the maximum number of people are doing work that truly inspires them. As a career strategist, he is uniquely placed to help you understand why so many people can’t stand their jobs, and what you can do to change your situation for the better.
He has faced his own difficulties in a career that he hated, and he now puts those challenging experiences to good use when conducting worldwide research on job satisfaction.
The most fascinating and powerful elements of Dinsmore’s findings are explaining in his “Passionate Work Framework.” He’ll take you through a few simple but incredibly effective approaches to finding the right kind of work to support your happiness, and the great news is that every single one of them is completely within your control.
He refuses to charge for his career services, offering them not just in this talk but also on his own site.
So, sit back, and in less than half an hour you’ll have your attitude towards work transformed. Don’t settle for mediocrity—find a way to do what you love.
