Career Fulfillment

Find my fulfillment through my life

In short, fulfillment is living a very meaningful life, a life that is meaningful and satisfying. Contentment is not necessarily related to happiness. It’s about meaning, deep meaning. It’s about your own vision, your dreams, and living a life that’s in full alignment and flows with your values. In a word, to be full is to be fully alive! This is what people desire, and unfortunately, it often doesn’t come true.

The difference between people who find meaning and fulfillment and those who don’t is that people who find it consistently believes that if they keep trying, they will eventually find their passion. Or, if they’re one of the lucky ones, they’ll find it quickly. They know it’s worth it and they won’t give up. They’ve realized that the most valuable investment of time is figuring out who they are and what they really want.

Find fulfillment in your work

When we talk about fulfillment at work, we talk about finding meaning, increasing empowerment and autonomy, improving work-life balance, completing more meaningful tasks and fewer low-value tasks, and improving self-esteem, transparency and openness.

If for whatever reason you don’t feel fulfilled at work, accept that won’t change the fact. Focus on finding fulfillment elsewhere in your life. Wake up an hour early to start those passion projects. Focus on putting your energy into what excites you. There’s no point wasting energy on something you know has no chance of changing. In this case, the key is to acknowledge your situation, and if you can change it, focus on directing your energies to things that will help you stand out.


Define your career goals


Your career goals are what you want to achieve professionally. Your career goals may be tied to hard skills (learning a new programming language, improving data analysis skills) as well as soft skills (improving leadership skills, mastering the art of selling). But no matter what type or number of career goals you set, they all fall into one of two categories: short-term and long-term.

Setting career goals will give you an end game. They are what you want to achieve in the end. To achieve long-term goals, you need to set short-term and even medium-term goals that serve as a roadmap for how to get from where you are now to where you want to go. This can show employers that you are invested in this career path and that you are a highly motivated individual.
