Pain Points & Longings Exercise
In Make Work Matter: Your Guide to Meaningful Work in a Changing World, Michaela O’Donnell describes the new world of work and how it can leave us feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and even lonely. Pressing into these feelings and discovering what lies beneath them is the first step to building “a new toolkit” for our work. This step helps us define where we are now on our journey. In this exercise, you’ll identify the current pain points in your work so that you can uncover what you’re truly longing for.
