  • Challenged every day to use their strengths
  • Encouraged to grow
  • Passionate about their work
  • Teams they enjoy working with
  • Individuals they enjoy working with
  • Well-planned goals 
  • Friends that share their passion

  1. Years ago, people looked for whatever stable job or career they could find, fir survival, to pay bills, to support their families. They did not enjoy going the work, but waited until the weekend and vacations to enjoy their time.

    Unfortunately that left the majority of their lives doing things they didn’t like, or hated just to get a pay check.How sad!

    How great you find something to fo that resonates with your soul, something you LOVE to do, something that challenges you! Imagine how much more would be produced, how many more glitches would be solved if the worker loved what he was doing!

  2. I do agree that career well-being is based upon these bullet points. I don’t have a career yet, but I do have a job mowing lawns. I believe my job meets the bullet points. It has meaning because the outcome of my job is nice looking lawns that are neatly cut, which makes me feel great. My job uses my strength and effort mowing lawns, making me feel fit and accomplished. my I look forward to doing my job. Right now I’m doing all the lawn work in my family, but what could make my job even better would be to have my brother helping me out.
