I call it the universal question. So far, I haven’t met anyone who didn’t wrestle with it. I certainly did, and if you’re reading this so have you. The question is this:
“What should I do with my life?”
For whatever reason, it’s the one question we all struggle with, but few have found the answer to. Why is that? And why is it so difficult to figure out the answer? If we are meant to live lives of purpose and meaning, then why do so many of us trudge along doing meaningless things?
Most of us make a decision about our college major and future career based on an “outside/in model”: looking at our options “out there;” making an educated guess about best-fit based on money, credit hours, efficiency, parental influence, or other extrinsic factors; and making ourselves “fit in.” As a result, we leave behind our main competitive advantage — who we are. This model is both inefficient and based on unknowns, and leads to less satisfaction, more turnover, and lower retention in both college and the workplace.
There’s a better way.
The “inside/out model” suggests that we first get clear about who we are, then use that self-knowledge as a lens to screen potential career paths to find a best-fit option – the option that is most likely to align with what we know about who we are. The challenge until now has been finding a structured way to organize that self-learning and apply it in practice to make career-based decisions.
