When We Identify With Our Job

When We Identify With Our Job

Most of us when asked ‘so what do you do?’ at a typical party conversation end up describing our job profile and the work that we do, as it makes up our main identity, and sometimes the only identity we have.

Our career takes up most of our time and energy, but only defining oneself professionally is limiting and even diminishing our self-identity.

Dangers Of Identifying Yourself With Your Job

  1. It limits you to a single identity.
  2. It gives an incomplete and shallow picture of you to others.
  3. It doesn’t leave room for connections and serendipity.
  4. It leads to burnout as we keep running the same treadmill of work and start to think we are only something because of it.

How To Describe Yourself Outside Of Work

Next time you are meeting a stranger or a party attendee, describe yourself with something less career-oriented, like how you spend your free time, what is it that you are really proud of, or what you do during your weekends.

This can lead to authentic and stimulating conversations, and remind you that you aren’t just your job.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
