I had dinner with a dear friend and inspiration tonight, Rick Loy.
He brought up what I think we’re all looking for. To paraphrase, Rick mentioned that finding professional satisfaction comes when you figure out what it is that you enjoy doing AND what you’re the best at, and you do it. The thing that makes you feel “in the groove,” that’s in your wheelhouse.
Can you be in the groove 100% of the time? No. But you can figure out ways to spend more of your time in the groove.
Write down the things that make your ticker tick, see if there are any commonalities among them, and then figure out how you can do more of it.
p.s., this actually can’t be reserved for just professional satisfaction, but just satisfaction. I only changed it due to the predominant content of this blog.
