Work: Is it All Toil And Turmoil?

pin for later

People dream of grand adventures and all of the fun they’ll have “one day.” Yet so often, that dreaded word “work” holds us back. Is your work drudgery that you are forced to do to “be a responsible adult”? Are you stressed and exhausted and wishing there were a better way?

Well I believe there IS a better way. Work does not have to be a burden we have to bear, but an opportunity for us to serve others, give back, and work in our passions as well.

3 Big Perception Shifts

There are three important things to consider when it comes to your perception of work:

  • The workplace is constantly changing -“A recent report published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the U.S. will add roughly 20 million new jobs by the year 2020 – a nearly 14% annual rate of growth in new jobs over the next decade.”
  • So much power is simply in the mindset. I’ll discuss an “entrepreneurial mindset” below - it’s a perspective shift rooted in the growth mindset that allows one to look at life as, “what does this make possible?”
  • Think outside the box. No longer are we clocking in at the same job for thirty years. “The median tenure for workers age 25 to 34 is 3.2 years.*” At 4.6 years for the overall average, there are more and more opportunities to explore work for a season as well as look at multiple streams of income.

How To Find Work You Love

Are you sitting on a nail? What is going to take you further? In my father’s business, we talk about how “85% of the process of finding work you love is by looking inward first.”

It’s not just about finding what pays the most. It’s looking at:

  1. Your skills and abilities
  2. Your values, dreams and passions
  3. Your unique personality style

"Out of the Box" Work Ideas

But wait. I want To Do What You're Doing!

If you are dreaming of hitting the road like we do, we have options for you. One of those streams of income that I have is with my course, 90 Day Family Road Trip. This walks you through the acronym “RECESS”, helping you navigate which RV is best for you, family expectations, choosing your adventure, how you’ll pay for the party, setup, and more. 

Where are you in the process?

What do you think about this? Are you already in a location - independent career, or are your wheels turning with these "out of the box" income generation ideas?

Share what you're planning for your family to really allow for enjoying the moment and not waiting for "one day!"

Keep the conversation going!

The more we recognize those personality styles and those strengths and what triggers us, the more we can come back to how the uniqueness in each of us strengthens all of us.
