I’ve heard of a lot of people who are searching and searching for the perfect career, or the perfect job.
That’s the paid vocation where you do what you love, and there’s no pressure and no accountability.
You don’t have targets and you don’t have to answer to your boss or to your bank manager or to yourself for those weeks that just don’t seem to want to go to plan.
It’s a career where you can say what you want, to whoever you want, and not have to be concerned about the consequences of offending or upsetting anyone….
I saw a Venn Diagram recently….
I recently read an article featuring an interesting Venn Diagram…
The four intersecting circles were labelled:
- What I love
- What my strengths are
- What the world needs
- What I get paid for
The two horizontal circles, at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock were “What my strengths are” and “What the world needs” and where they intersected with each other were your cause and your calling, depending on whether we were looking at an intersection with the “What I love” circle at 12 o’clock [calling] or the “What I get paid for” circle at 6 o’clock [cause].
Interestingly, the “What I get paid for” circle at 6 o’clock intersects at Profession with “What my strengths are” at 9 o’clock, and also with Vocation when it intersects with “What the world needs” at 3 o’clock.
“What I get paid for” also intersects at “Cause” when it intersects with both “What the world needs” at 3 o’clock and “What my strengths are” at 9 o’clock.
And even more interestingly….
And even more interestingly, the “What I love” circle at 12 o’clock has intersections of “Passion” and “Mission” and “Calling”, but none of these intersections are with the “What I get paid for” circle at 6 o’clock.
The “What I love” circle at 12 o’clock and the “What I get paid for” circle at 6 o’clock do intersect very briefly at “Career” with the “What my strengths are” circle at 9 o’clock.
The “What I love” circle at 12 o’clock and the “What I get paid for” circle at 6 o’clock do intersect very briefly at “Potential” when they intersect with the “What the world needs” circle at 3 o’clock.
The sweet spot…
The sweet spot, where all four circles meet [“What I love” circle at 12 o’clock and the “What I get paid for” circle at 6 o’clock and the “What my strengths are” circle at 9 o’clock and the “What the world needs” circle at 3 o’clock], is “Purpose.”
The sweet spot on a Venn diagram is a very small portion of the diagram.
Is this because the sweet spot is difficult to achieve?
Does the perfect vocation exist, and is it realistically achievable?
Or is there always going to be a need for compromise?
