How to… Create a Career you Love

Updated: Sep 2, 2019

Do you ever find yourself winding down on a Sunday evening, having had a great weekend with friends and family, only to have that looming Monday morning feeling hit you like a ton of bricks?


Perhaps it is time to make some changes.

We spend at least one third of our time working. If you don’t love your work that is A LOT of time doing something that you don’t enjoy.


Maybe it's a different company. Maybe it's a new career. Maybe you want to go on a big adventure or start your own business. BUT you're not sure where to start.


First consider:

  • What isn't working for me in my career?

  • What type of life do I want to lead?

  • How do I work out what I really want to do?

  • What is holding me back?

  • How do I overcome my fears?

  • How do I come up with a plan that excites me?

  • How do I create opportunities on my own terms?

Finding a career that you love is about personal fulfilment. It is about making choices for yourself and owning your definition of success.


It can be quite overwhelming with so much to consider. However, don’t let a lack of clarity paralyse you from moving forward.


What motivates you?

  • If money weren’t an issue, what would I do?

  • What type of role or mission would I be excited to tell my friends and family about?

  • What makes me most curious?

  • What do I do best?

  • What am I most passionate about?

  • What projects (paid or voluntary) have I most enjoyed working on and why?

  • What kind of work environment do I thrive in?

Take your time. Identify the things that make you, You. It is okay to acknowledge weaknesses but don’t dwell on them. Build on your strengths, that is where your success will come from.


The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. - Amelia Earhart
