Last night was another great event at the Hub Westminster, on finding passion and switching careers. It was our first event in a part-lecture, part-workshop format, and a really valuable and fun way for Rob and I to explore what we’re writing about in our respective books. You can read more about Rob’s book here and a really loose summary of mine is here.
What the evening personally reminded me about:
- Finding work you love is an ongoing conversation – with yourself, with the marketplace, with those around you. These events are a great way to start changing the conversation you’re having with yourself.
- Rome wasn’t built in a day, and great change doesn’t happen overnight – we’re all on our own journeys and at different stages. Some attendees had quit months ago, others weren’t sure if they were ever even going to quit.
- Face-to-face trumps email: offline interaction provides a completely different depth and experience than online – as much as I love hearing from you guys via email and social media, it’s always even better to meet you face to face and to hear your stories in real life.
