Everyone wants to feel a sense of purpose. And if you ask someone what brings them that purpose, you’ll usually hear some combination of “work and family” or “family and work.”
If you’re in a place where you’re feeling that you aren’t having success in your career, or you if you—like many—are doing quite well in a career or profession but not feeling the sense of satisfaction from it that you want or expected, you’re not alone (however much it might sometimes feel that way). You may feel a sense of burnout or lack of purpose. You may fantasize about running your own business. You may just need help finding better ways to balance work and home life. The career counselors and career coaches at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can help you define your goals and what it will take to achieve them.
Defining Your Personal and Career Goals
People have vastly different goals for their careers, and different hopes for what they will (1) give to their careers and (2) get from their careers. Most typically, what people want to get from their vocations is some combination and blend of the following:
- Making money
- Helping people
- Feeling a sense of purpose at work
Moreover, people have vastly different ideas of what types of work they will enjoy:
- Some want to write articles quietly, while others want to give presentations.
- Others want to work in a team, while others want to work more independently.
- Some want to be on their feet, while others want to be at a desk.
And then some people don’t really care what they do, as long as their job affords them the flexibility and financial comfort to do other things that are important to them. A career counselor at Thriveworks in Littleton, CO can help clients prioritize their values and their goals in the short-term and long-term.
