What Is Work You Love & How Do You Get There?
In this episode, I talk about work you love. While  many people say that they want to have work they love, hardly anyone  knows where to begin with that quest. Or what to aim for, really. Hence, this episode where I cover:  - what work even is,  - what the FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) movement gets wrong about work, - the magical equation for creating work you love (hint: it involves passion and purpose), and - how to get started with creating work you love if you have no clue where to begin (hint: it has to do with your passion).

Meaningful Work: Why It’s Important & What You Can Do
In this episode, I talk about meaningful work.  As you might know, I think this is such an important topic.

Unfortunately, that's really not the case for most people.  Hence, this episode where I cover: - why meaningful work is so important, - what Viktor Frankl (psychiatrist, bestselling author, and concentration camp survivor) taught about the relationship between work and meaning, - why it's so hard to have meaningful work and what might hold you back from having it, - why it's so important to redefine success.

Passion and Purpose: Here’s what you need to know
In this brief episode, I talk about passion and purpose.

A Fresh Take on Work-Life Balance & How to Get There
In this episode, I talk to award-winning scientist and spiritual teacher Elijah Petersen about work-life balance. Having this in our lives helps with maintaining good relationships with the people we care about, being less stressed, feeling happier, being more productive at work and having a richer, fuller life. However, getting to this place is not easy. How can we find time for all of the things that are important so that we can show up fully at work and in other areas of our lives? In this episode, we talked about: - our best advice for having the life you want while also being productive at work, - why you need a different approach to work-life balance depending on whether you are an employee or entrepreneur, - the impact of your culture on your work-life balance (and why we should probably all move to the Netherlands...), - a simple practice that can help you be more productive, and - our suggestions for leaving work at work.
