Resolve to do more of what you love in 2015.
The world is a better place when people do what they do best, especially to benefit other people. You are a better person when you do what you do best. You’re happier, more successful, and more satisfied. Paradoxically, the more you focus on doing what you do best, the less you focus on yourself. When you are miserable and living in your weakness you are more inclined to self-pity.
However, when you’re living in your strength consistently, you free up your mind to focus on other things – and other people – and in offering what you do best to the world.
So how do you do more of what you love? Track your energy. It’s deceptively simple. Take a week, any week, and track the activities that you do that give you energy and the ones that drain you of energy. Then, the following week, figure out how to do a little more of what gives you energy and a little less of what drains you. Repeat.
What if your day-to-day existence doesn’t provide much opportunity to do what you do best and, thus, your energy tracking shows nothing but a deficit? It might be time for a reset. In mid-January I’ll be launching my book, Reset: How Do Get Paid to Do What You Love with strategies for resetting your career and figuring out your best-fit career.
