Never work just for money or power. They won’t save your soul or help you sleep at night.” ~ Marion Wright Edelman
If you read my blog on Monday called A Shepard’s Tea, I mentioned how combining business with spiritual-centered idea has brought personal fulfillment to me. It is a growing concept in this country that I hope we hear more about in the future. Because working an entire lifetime at something that is not personally satisfying seems to be a waste of a life and not what life is intended to be.
The other day I came across an article from McKinsey and Company. The good news is our country needs more leaders in all aspects of industry. At the center of leadership there needs to be certain conditions for successful outcomes. They are as follows:
- Managing Energy
- Positive Framing
If you wish to know more about the principles that are the cornerstone of centered leadership, I suggest you read this article.
If you are unhappy in your current work environment or career, take time out to read and consider how you might be able to make changes in your life which will lead to greater levels of personal fulfillment. Even baby steps toward a greater goal will make a difference.
