I recently came across anything article written by Rich Fernandez. He was writing about the value of following our inner compass, which I really resonated with,
“Being in your work does not require any extraordinary effort, nor does it necessitate finding your “dream job.” You simply need to be present and allow yourself to experience what is most alive for you, what decisions you make relative to it, and how you take action.” I really enjoyed reading that wonderful quote from Rich.
He suggested that in following error in the compass we should ask ourselves the following key questions and by placing attention on what it means to be fully “yourself, aligned, and present.”
- How would I like each day to unfold?
- What would I like to focus my energy and attention on?
- What brings me joy?
- What makes me feel balanced?
- What state of mind would I like to be in while I work?
- What other aspects of my life do I wish to be paying more attention to?
- By the end of my life, what kind of person do I wish to be?
