The principles of good work
- we challenge ourselves to continuously improve the best parts of ourselves;
- we play to our strengths, the best combination of our talents, knowledge and skills;
- we explore and develop ourselves – once we know exactly what we want, we will move towards it;
- we alone are responsible for finding work we care about. We alone can know for sure if our identity and the world are aligned to this end
- we get immediate feedback on our work to refine, improve and master it
- we celebrate success and accept the recognition
- we work the hours, make the money and have the social status that serve us;
- we are authentic - we express ourselves in a way that makes us feel wholly ourselves;
- we build enjoyment into what happens day in, day out;
- we immerse ourselves in things we like;
Reasons you're interested
Fact #1 - You probably deserve a great job or business
There are lots of promises out there about escaping from something, finding your passion or living your dream life. Lots of career change coaches and career change advice about how to change your career. But ultimately you have to change. Even when you’ve worked hard already and been successful. If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great. And the journey. And the fun. And the teamwork. And the fact that you just earned your great job and your great life.
Fact #2 - Career change is boring
Searching through job boards and sending countless job applications doesn’t energise you about your new life, but a fun curriculum of activities, meeting amazing mentors and role models and acting your way into your new life with confidence and passion do.
Fact # 3 - Setting a goal works
Yes, you feel lost and let down. But before you sign up for another event or workshop and write down another list of goals that don’t happen, set yourself a real goal with a team of like-minded people. Keep your promises to yourself to make it happen. Procrastinate no longer, get unstuck from career paralysis and start to make transformative changes in your life.
Fact #4 - Teamwork and camaraderie matter
Yes the system, school, people around you have led you astray. Yes, you’re tired of people telling you that this is just the way it is so get used to it. But don’t whine about it or make excuses. Join a community in it together.
What if education taught you how to thrive at work? How to know yourself? How to build your strengths and step into your fears?
We think it’s time. Career Lift off.
