A modern recipe for success

Have you ever considered how you spend your time in a typical day?
You usually sleep, work and do many other things that for simplification we can call your free time.
Many people spend actually more time at work than sleeping, leaving only few hours for free timeThis prevalence of working hours has increased so much in the past decades, that it has lead to the introduction of the concept of work-life balance.

Since work accounts for most of your time, if you want to be happy, you should enjoy your career.

Don't get me wrong. I personally believe and strive for success in both my career and my private life. One shouldn't exclude the other. But while I'm confident that everyone of us attempts to make well pondered decisions about life, the same often does not hold true for work related matters. Think about your current job. Have you strategically searched for it or is it more a series of chances, that could have eventually worked out in a completely different way?

Career ingredients

In this blog I would like to discuss how to dramatically improve your chances for an enjoyable career.
The goal is to share my experience and to give you all the tools you need, to plan your career. If you don't do it, no one else will.

Think about your Career as a recipe where you carefully prepare all the ingredients and then you mix them together to make something great out of it. You are the chef and even if everyone has the very same recipe, the way you cook it will be different from other people and it will make it special.

The bottom line is: It's up to you how you will utilize this knowledge. I personally like the term enjoy because instead of picturing my career as a stressful climb of stairs for money and higher positions, I rather see it and live it as a perfect mix of passion, fun and satisfaction. A job, that gets you every day out of the bed with a smile and that never makes you say TGIF. 

Are you ready to enjoy your career?
