20-50% of people quit their jobs without knowing what to do next. Are you one of them?

In a world of uncertainties, finding the thing that lights us up gets more difficult each day. Most of us are burnt out, dragging ourselves to work for the paycheck, status, benefits, and prestige until we wake up 10 or 20 years later wondering what it was all for.

How do we show up better in life and keep our sense of purpose?

Jonathan Fields offers the tools and strategies we're looking for! Here, he talks about what defines a good life, where to find meaning despite uncertainties, and how to cultivate a still mindset to embody a more peaceful and productive inner state.

Jonathan is the host of the top-rated podcast, Good Life Project. After years of researching what sparks people's motivation, he came up with a system that identifies people into 10 different Sparketypes. Among his greatest discovery is this: aligning our work with our Sparketype leads to a higher sense of fulfillment and renewed quality of life. Find out more about the Sparketypes in Jonathan’s new book, "SPARKED, Discover Your Unique Imprint For Work That Makes You Come Alive."
