Should I stay in a role that's burning me out but offers long term security or pursue what lights me up?
Every week on the SPARKED podcast, we invite a listener to share what’s going on in their work & life, then pose a specific question to Jonathan Fields and a rotating lineup of wise and kind mentors - the SPARKED Braintrust.
In today’s episode we’re in conversation with:
SPARKED BRAINTRUST ADVISOR: Cynthia Morris | Website
Cynthia is the founder of the Original Impulse creative studio and atelier and coaching program for writers, she’s also an author, workshop facilitator, trusted advisor and coach.
LISTENER: Lauren - Sparketype: Maven/Nurturer
QUESTION: Listener Lauren shares a moment of genuine inflection where she knows what she wants to do next, but also feels beholden to the job she has now, and who it’s serving, and also isn’t so quick to walk away from the years she’s already earned toward retirement and benefits, even though it’ll be another decades before any of that can be cashed out. And, burnout and depletion are a big part of this conversation, too, which I know is such a common feeling these days.
YOUR HOST: Jonathan Fields
