“There comes a time when you ought to start doing what you want. Take a job that you love. You will jump out of bed in the morning. I think you are out of your mind if you keep taking jobs that you don’t like because you think it will look good on your resume. Isn’t that a little like saving up sex for your old age?” – Warren Buffet Are you doing a job you absolutely love? What a question? I remember this feeling from my teenage years of the dread of the fact that I had school the next day. It was like a dark cloud encroaching on the end of my lovely weekend. It made me feel sick, to my stomach. It was only after going to college, and a place that made me feel alive, that I realised the importance of doing something you love. And this was where my passion for purpose began. It became a fascination for me and started me on this path of inquiry of finding out whether people do jobs they love. Throughout my life I designed these environments that propagated this feeling of being alive. Idealistic perhaps although it changed everything. I remember when I was 26, teaching in Liberties College and literally, every day, it was like there was a spring in my bed, as I pounced out with such joy knowing the day that lay in front of me. Monday’s were not blue or something I dreaded. It became my biggest goal. To do things I loved. I learned about myself and the variety of things I love, and my love of variety. My love of working with people, my love of teaching, my love of creativity and innovation. I also truly believe that when you do something you love, you generally are going to excel at it more than others. I have learned since then that there are some other important ingredients that are required to hit that sweet spot around purpose. These topics are what we cover in our programme ‘Pathways to Purpose’, giving you the essential tools in helping you design a roadmap for finding your purpose.
