WorkLife Book Of The Week: How To Build Your Life Around What Engages And Inspires You

Welcome to WorkLife Book Of The Week. Every week Monday through Sunday I serialise a story from the School of WorkLife book series. I do this each day in under 280 characters, which I post across my social media channels. Then at the end of each week, I bring all 7 daily posts together here as 1 weekly blog post, which I also share on my podcast: WorkLife Book Wisdom.

This week’s WorkLife Book of The Week is:  How To Build Your Life Around What Engages And Inspires You

This week’s WorkLife Story of The Week:  What Completely Engages and Inspires You in Your WorkLife and How Can You Use This to Create Your Go-Be-Do Joie De Vivre WorkLife Living Plan,

Carmel’s story about how beginning from a place of doing a little of what she loved every day, then building on that, she created a WorkLife that engaged and inspired her.

WEDNESDAY

For me, it’s writing. Why do I want to write? Because I have a voice. Writing is a great expression of that. Being the reflective soul I am, writing is a more natural medium for me to get my thinking out into the world. My professional and personal development is important to me

can be done in a manner that fits into your WorkLife in an engaging and inspiring way that is enjoyable, rewarding, fun, and cost-effective.For example, once I knew I wanted the next stage of my WorkLife to be about supporting individuals in their learning I identified that  

SATURDAY

I want to continue to develop my research skills, together with reading more. These are supporting skills for my writing. For the moment I’m not going to invest in any specific training, instead I’m adopting a hands-on approach of doing it every day. The purpose is to become a

specialist in my area. Discovering new ways of doing things to support people in a way that draws on expertise, is fresh, interesting, creative, innovative and fun. If I can do it, so can you, and from this you can create your Joie De Vivre plan for what you want in your WorkLife

The School of WorkLife book series are designed to help you manage your own WorkLife Learning.

Each book tells real WorkLife stories of the successes and challenges people encountered in their WorkLife. Each book also includes the exercises that helped navigate these situations, which are presented as assignments for you to work through.

The stories I share are based on real life WorkLife situations – case studies of the challenges and successes people experienced in navigating the chapters of their WorkLife Story.

I believe stories are a powerful mechanism for teaching, a powerful medium to learn through, and also a powerful way to communicate who you are and what you stand for.

I hope you enjoy the stories and find them helpful in navigating the chapters of your WorkLife story.
