What is LifeWork?

The first part of this post lists the National Career Development Associations definitions of common use terms like career, career
development, work, drudgery, vocation, occupation and job.

At the end of that post, I define lifework as "a special kind of "work" that rises out of your dreams. LifeWork elevates "work" to a higher emotional and spiritual plane where you fulfill your dreams or your destiny or what you were meant to be/do, or you find your "voice" or your calling or your soul's code."

(Other's who use the term "LifeWork or Lifework").

80% - What is LifeWork Planning?

As cited above, I define one's "LifeWork" as being more than just a job or a career. Thus, "LifeWork planning" is a little more involved than "career planning".

In some places I combine "career" and "LifeWork" together in the phrase "career/LifeWork" because I want entice readers to do a little more than career planning.

LifeWork planning helps you to answer questions like ...
  1. What is my purpose in life, what am I meant to do?
  2. What is my calling - my soul's code?
  3. What is my mission in life?
  4. What am I passionate about?
  5. “Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do.”  - H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Why should I do LifeWork planning?

In a word "joy".

Your LifeWork is work that gives you joy.

And the work that you enjoy doing is what defines your LifeWork.

You should do career/LifeWork planning to increase the chances that you will find joy and meaning in the work you do throughout your lifetime.

Make your dreams your LifeWork.
