Meaning + Money: Can You Have Both In a Career?

Finding Clarity

October 10, 2021

When I was working in Corporate, it took me a long time to even entertain the idea that I had options. Let alone that I could leave and do something else.

 

I was adamant that I didn’t have an option or a choice. And that I HAD to stay and somehow make it work. 

 

The truth is I had the great privilege of actually having a choice. And that really is a privilege.

 

There was immense guilt and shame wrapped up around having the option to leave a fabulous company and role, with awesome opportunities for career progression….

 

Even though I had savings in the bank and could “afford” to take time out to reassess, I couldn’t even see alternative options for my career because I was so fixated on needing money and that steady paycheque. 

 

Back then, meaning and money were at odds with each other. I had to choose one.

 

Option A: I could make a lot of money – but the work wouldn’t be meaningful. Plus I had to work really hard.

 

Or

 

Option B: I could choose to focus on meaning – but not make a lot of money.

 

In any case, I had to make a choice.

 

These days I believe that you can have meaning and money in your career – with a few caveats.
