I coach people around finding work that will improve happiness. What I’ve found is that people often know what work will satisfy them because they know what lights the, up. It’s their own thinking that gets cluttered and makes it more complicated. They also engage in destination thinking, trying to pick a job that seems good and then figure out how to be happy later.

Two exercises have helped my clients immensely. One is an energy audit, where they make two lists, things that energize them and things that drain their energy. The other is a future pacing question in which they imagine themselves 3 years in the future, looking back, and explaining why their life is amazing.
