Career Well-Being

"Career Well-Being" has to do with what we do with our time.  It has nothing to do with a paycheck.  People who report having a sense of "career well-being" had these four factors in place every time.

Whether we get paid or not, Career Well-Being is based upon these factors:

  • 1- What we do has meaning.
  • 2- What we do uses our strengths.
  • 3- What we do gives us something to look forward to.
  • 4- What we do involves friends and/or family who share a common mission.

We want more than "a job."  We want more than "a career." We want to combine our jobs, our careers, our gifts and our life purpose into one opportunity to serve humanity.  Those who had a best friend at work reported greater "career well-being." People with greater "career well-being" are more productive and perform better at their jobs.

We believe that careers must be chosen based upon your personal passions and strengths aimed at the highest purpose and the greatest need.

  1. I believe that we all need a degree of faith. We do impact our environment for good or bad and I think God knew that when he created us and that is why the earth system is often self-correcting. Someone could argue that our mere presence is polluting. I believe that as we become more educated and develop new technologies we often understand the downsides of what we once thought was pollution-free or sustainable is neither.
