The Next Gen
Kevin Salwen on Culture

There's a nice piece on Worthwhile in today's issue of The Collegian, the daily newspaper for the University of California at Fresno. I absolutely love seeing stories like that -- not just because it's good publicity for the magazine, but because it lets the next generation of business leaders learn about how to begin a career with passion. Fills us with hope.

Great comments Kate.
As a person who does contract work for an employment insurance arm of the federal government I see dis-satisfied people often.
As a person who helps people uncover their passion in my coaching practise I often ask 'So...what do you want to do?' Most people don't know at first so five times is a good start. Once a person gives themselves permission to do what they love, without fear of recrimination, then they can figure out what to do with their work. A great place to start is with this question...
'What made you laugh as a child? What did you love to do?'
I find that often touches the person to the core and helps them uncover their lost passions.
Once again, Worthwhile proves there is a need for work/life/passion in today's world.
Living la vida fearless,

A great article packed with good advice...especially “Your job should mean something to you, it should be based off the things that motivate you. You would never do anything socially for 50 hours a week if you didn’t like it, so why do that with your job?�

Makes me wonder if career counselors at colleges should ask each young client the 'so, what do you want to do?' question at least five times, to go beneath what their family wants for them, what looks good on TV, how the friends they look up would answer, and what they think will pay the best.

Might not be a bad exercise for the post (and post-post) college demographic either!
