It feels like there’s this big push in our era to find your One True Purpose and live and breathe it every single day.
I’ll be the first to admit, I got caught in that trap.
And for me, it’s often got in the way more than it’s helped.
While I do think it’s important to find work that is meaningful, aligned and enjoyable, sometimes we can get too caught up in making it epic that we end up getting in the way of… doing the actual work.… Click to read more
