Re-Invigorating Work with Patricia Clason – 4-9-17
March 9, 2017
For most of us, we feel lucky to feel called to pursue a particular line of work, and to get the education and experience that allows us to master that work. There is something satisfying about doing work you know you are good at, that you feel connected to, and that allows you to feel fulfilled.
But what do you do when you stop feeling fulfilled by that work; when what used to inspire you no longer does? This is particularly challenging when you have spent years cultivating a specific area of expertise, or have worked for a company for a long time, and you have never really contemplated other options. This week we begin a series of discussions about how we can Re-Invigorate Work. How can we get back to feeling excited about what we do, or make changes that will allow us to rediscover the energy and passion that we once felt for the way we make a living? Our guest this week brings her decades of perspective as a business owner and coach who will share her advice on how we can feel reinvigorated.
