Minisode Monday #29 | What Do You Do with Your Life?

Welcome to Minisode Monday, where we kick off the week with something quick and actionable — to make you more magnetic and effective — that you can implement right away.

In this Minisode Monday, Jeff Goins, author of The Art of Work: A Proven Path to Discovering What You Were Meant to Do, joins us to go beyond the overused (and essentially meaningless) “follow your passion” advice and help us find out what we’re good at and how we can use it to be useful in the world in a fulfilling way.

Let’s get to it!

The Cheat Sheet:

  • Following your passions or making use of the skills that come naturally might be great for finding hobbies or jobs to pay the bills — but how can they direct you toward your life’s calling?
  • What do you love doing with your time?
  • What do you think you’re good at doing?
  • What do you have that the world needs?
  • The sweet spot: where passion, skill, and demand intersect to give you a purpose to pursue.
  • Pick something that fits into this sweet spot and, for the next 30 days, see how pursuing it feels. If it remains something you love doing with your time, you think you’re good at doing, and it addresses something the world needs, you may have just found your life’s calling!

He’ll tell you the only reason he’s still alive and kicking is because of his ability to talk his way into (and out of) just about any type of situation. Here at The Art of Charm, Jordan shares that experience, and the system borne as a result, with students and clients.
