It seems like we dish it out in spades, doesn’t it? And oftentimes, it’s not relevant, or at all helpful.
But sometimes someone gets it right.
My pal Paolo wrote a bit about finding career happiness (and also clarified the differences between Venn and Euler diagrams) here. He’s added his own worksheet here, filling in positions that he’s held that fit certain criteria, and daydreaming about those that might fit.
It’s less simplistic than most advice I hear for singers or those transitioning out… which boils down often to “If you can imagine doing anything else, do that other thing.” More helpfully, Paolo’s outlined an exercise that allows you to put your career path into a concrete, personal context.
I’m looking forward to working through it, myself!
