4 Principles To Follow For A Meaningful Career. by iamsambo: 4:15pm On Oct 10, 2017
We all aspire to find meaning and purpose in our careers, whatever our line of work maybe, but the question is how do you actually do that?

Through this post, I’d like to share some practical steps you can take to make sure that you don’t stay stuck in a career that’s not meant for you but rather you are empowered to find a career that allows you to do what you genuinely care about.

Conventional wisdom may indicate that a meaningful and successful career is one that brings loads of money, recognition, and fame. And maybe that is true for some people, but is that true for you?

You need to take a moment of self-reflection and truly consider what a meaningful career looks like for you and how that fits into the context of a meaningful life.

When trying to decide what a meaningful career looks like, try to consider how your intended career weighs against the following factors: legacy, mastery, freedom, and alignment


Look at the list of things you will have to achieve on this job and ask yourself if these are things you enjoy doing and can see yourself doing for an extended period of time. It’s not always going to be rainbows and roses, so even on the mundane days, you have to ask yourself if you would be willing to stick it out.

Are you creative and like to think outside the box? Do you like to follow rules and preserve order? How well do you handle uncertainty? Do you like being told what to do or do you prefer to be left to your own devices most of the time? Are you good at convincing others to do things or do you prefer to let the numbers do the talking?

Will your career allow you achieve the things you want to professionally while allowing you to stay true to yourself?
