Better jobs are those that require little to no thought, like sweeping or cleaning or baking bread. When I'm doing manual work, my mind is free to work on anything. Usually a good book, read on breaks and during lunch, will give it enough fuel to keep it humming along until the work is done.
Best jobs are those that actually require firing on all cylinders, intellectual and creative and any other talent area that needs expression. These are the kind of all-consuming job experiences that only "just happen" to a lucky few. Most of us spend a long time figuring out what exactly that might look like, because we have a unique constellation of talents and interests.
But I'm here to tell you that it's possible; it's out there, whatever "it" is for you. A coach can provide a sounding board for experiments in occupational joy, and look for themes in your choices and actions. By exploring the values that are most important to you, coaches can help you build "it" from the inside out. So get your motor running!

I always thought I was just ADHD! So what if I can learn in six months what it takes some people 20 years at a job to master.
Too bad I moved from the west coast, we could be friends:), or at the very least you might become my therapist! Please keep up the blogs, I'm excited about what else I might learn.
