My top 4 takeaways from this episode:

  1. Your purpose changes over time. It's important to recognise this and not get the idea that you have one purpose for your entire life

  2. Many roles and careers can make you feel the way that you want. Often we want a purpose so that we can have that feeling of 'making it'. In reality, many careers and many things that you could do would get you to this feeling. It's all about finding one that also matches things we need in the real world like money and time.

  3. Rest and recovery are important and are things that aren't emphasised in the corporate world. Take time to make sure your physical and mental health are in good condition

  4. Trust your gut when making career choices. At the end of the episode, Lidia tells a great story about how she'd started a new career in Law and how within 3 months she knew that it wasn't for her. She speaks to the importance of listening to your gut, and to asking yourself an important question. If you can't see yourself doing your bosses job, then are you in the right place?
