A friend recently forwarded me a post from Bud Caddell’s What Consumes Me blog. If you are in business and you are committed to BOTH your business success AND your personal satisfaction you owe it to yourself to take a look at this brief post.
In it, Bud shares a simple, but very insightful Venn diagram that shows the overlaps between your business strengths (What We Do Well), satisfaction (What We Want To Do) and ability to earn (What We Can Be Paid To Do). From the diagram, we can infer that if you hit the trifecta (meet all three criteria) – Hooray! You’ve found the formula for business happiness – getting paid to do what you are both passionate about and excel at.
