The problem: Let’s admit…when you’re in a Misfit Career, it’s a lose, lose! You lose because you hate your career, and the client loses because they’re missing out on the best you have to offer!
Fixing a Misfit Career is the most selfless thing you can do!
Before we begin to fix your career, let’s get on the same page with Blueprint Philosophy #1: which states that You were born with a Purpose and custom designed to fulfill that Purpose. Before we can fix your career, we must research what this Custom Design entails, so we can discover your Purpose, and then...
Blueprint Philosophy #2: states that We need to overlay your job with your Purpose and your Custom Design, so that it represents the best of what you have to offer and attracts your Fan Club.
When I was creating the Blueprint Process, I ran across a Chinese Proverb that states, “The day you were born, a problem was solved.”
Your Fan Club is the group of people that have a problem that you can help solve, whether directly or indirectly.
Action tip to Fix a Misfit Career: The 1st step is always research: what is your custom design? One of the characteristics of your Custom Design is the presence of the win/win relationship: what activities in your job are super satisfying for you, where the results of your work are super satisfying for your customer? These work activities involve your purpose.
For this research, I recommend not only studying the activities you do at work, but also the activities you do at home, at church, in volunteer settings, etc.
I would also recommend you studying not only current work activities, but also your past work activities.
Finally, after making a list of all activities that have a win/win relationship in them, contact me for a free assessment, so I can provide you with at least 10 aspects to your Custom Design. This is a win/win!
