Attracting Your Perfect Job or Career

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
Helen Keller

Are you in your perfect job?

Each of us is born with specific talents. Before you can attract your perfect career, work or life, you must be clear about your gifts, talents, and interests.

The challenge for many of you will be that your gifts and talents don’t fit the Standard Industry Classification (SIC) Code. While it may be easy to define the skills necessary to do the job of a welder, bus driver, or receptionist, how does an intrapreneur and an entrepreneur fit into the code? Many people do not! Making career decisions using the status quo is not always beneficial. For many of us, that process misses the mark.

My primary MBA research revealed that the higher up individuals moved on the traditional corporate ladder, the lower their job satisfaction and morale levels were. That is a fact. Even though I was not surprised by the research results, I was not prepared with direct follow-up questions to confirm the exact reasons for their growing job dissatisfaction.

Further evidence points to this: as people progress along the responsibility trail, they have less time and less balance in their lives; there is a growing chasm between their work life and the life they envisioned for themselves. Increasingly they are forced to make choices among the things they value most in life – and they simply do not like the options.
