We can learn much wisdom from others who have discovered what is the special formula that brings satisfaction.
I spent some time with a wise man recently who had retired from his world wide corporate role after over 35 years (travelling the world). He had to “rediscover” himself and reinvent his career (and hence his life) and he divided it into four key areas:
- Choose a career or occupation that challenges you mentally. It is important to grow in your thought life.
- Ensure this vocation is aligned with your purpose in life. This will bring you meaning each day.
- Retain autonomy. Everyone likes to be in control of their day and year.
- Ensure there are no negative people in your environment. People help make the experience of work enjoyable.
So in four key statements we have the secret to a healthy life transition and an enjoyable work environment.
I encourage you to sit down and reflect on your life and work reflecting on these four key areas. If any of them require work, address them. If you cannot achieve all four of them then you may need to restructure your life so that you can.
If you need any assistance, do consider coaching & mentoring with the SOL Results team.
We look forward to seeing you at our final Next Level Breakfast of the year on Wednesday 9 December 2020.
Live with passion, purpose and always be at peace.
