Gallop polls show that personal well-being is attached to what an individual does with her time. Feeling good about one's life has nothing to do with money, or "financial" well-being. It is the sense that one's career has meaning and purpose.
Those who rated themselves high on the career well-being scale have a few similarities:
- Challenged every day to use their strengths
- Encouraged to grow
- Passionate about their work
- Teams they enjoy working with
- Individuals they enjoy working with
- Well-planned goals
- Friends that share their passion
The sense of personal well-being is found through contributing to and
connecting with a community, and working together for the common good.
Cooperation is the key!
- Insightful higher thinking
- Unity, equality and inclusion
- Holacracy instead of hierarchy
- Co-ops and Worker-Owned Businesses
- Projects to work on collaboratively
- Working together for the common good
- An end to hierarchy and force
- Seeing the more subtle needs of each human being
- Greater well-being is the bottom line
Our career path is how we contribute our strengths to our community, and create a supportive
environment that provides opportunity for growth.

I do agree that career well-being is based upon these bullet points. I don’t have a career yet, but I do have a job mowing lawns. I believe my job meets the bullet points. It has meaning because the outcome of my job is nice looking lawns that are neatly cut, which makes me feel great. My job uses my strength and effort mowing lawns, making me feel fit and accomplished. my I look forward to doing my job. Right now I’m doing all the lawn work in my family, but what could make my job even better would be to have my brother helping me out.
I agree with these points. The point I would add is “the appreciation of others” would give me a sense of career well-being.
Years ago, people looked for whatever stable job or career they could find, fir survival, to pay bills, to support their families. They did not enjoy going the work, but waited until the weekend and vacations to enjoy their time.
Unfortunately that left the majority of their lives doing things they didn’t like, or hated just to get a pay check.How sad!
How great you find something to fo that resonates with your soul, something you LOVE to do, something that challenges you! Imagine how much more would be produced, how many more glitches would be solved if the worker loved what he was doing!
