“What is the work you can’t not do? Discover that, live it, not just for you but for everybody around you – because that’s what starts to change the world.”
80% of people don’t enjoy their work.
But there are 20% who love what they do.
So what separates those who do passionate, world-changing work and those who lead lives of “quiet desperation”?
At Forge, we believe that work and life are naturally intertwined. A “work-life balance” means prioritizing different areas of your life, including your career.
Work embodies who you are. On average, you’ll spend at least 2,000 hours annually at your job.
But so many people are reaching for jobs that they don’t even want.
In this TED Talk, Scott Dinsmore teaches how to “live your legend.” He goes through the framework that passionate world-changers have in common.
Hint: Changing the way you live starts by understanding yourself. You need to look at your own values, experiences, and passions. From there, you need to push your boundaries and limits. Only if you push limits will you make a change.
“If we don’t know what we’re looking for, then we’re never going to find it.”
Dinsmore asks one simple question that could completely change how you view your life…
Why are you doing the work that you’re doing?
Are you ready to start finding work and work-life balance that you love?
