What would you do for a job if your money was no object? Would it be the same as what you do for a wage now? For most of us, the answer is probably not, but our obligations and responsibilities keep pulling us back to our current jobs. However, what if I was to tell you that you could make steps towards career freedom? To do a job that fits better with your life and fills you with energy rather than draining you? You can even find some useful advice on this topic in the post below.
Consider your purpose.
The first step to true carer freedom is seeking out your purpose in life. Of course, this can be a tough one, because few of us ever get that ‘aha moment’ feeling when picking our career.
However, some activities can help you here, such as completing the Japanese Ikigai Venn diagram. This is because it combines several factors, such as what you love to do and what you can get paid for, and what your current profession is to help you find your life’s purpose. Something that can be hugely useful in directing your search towards a more freeing career choice.
Lower your expenses.
Because the jobs we do are the chief way we earn a living, we cannot just give up what we are doing to pursue greater career freedom. Unless we can reduce our need for money by cutting our living expenses, that is.
One of the best ways to cut our living expenses is to get out of debt, as the fees we are required to pay can be one of the highest costs we need to cover. The good news is that you can follow programs like this Debt to Success System to help you clear your debt, putting you in a much more stable financial position and allowing you to move towards a more fulfilling and freeing career option.
There are other methods to reduce the cost of your living expenses as well, including planning your meals, batch cooking being more economical with fuel usage. You may even wish to consider downsizing your home as this can provide cheaper rent or mortgage payments, as well as cost less than a larger property to run.
Find a job you can do from home.
You can also achieve more career freedom to find a job that you can do from your very own home and, if possible, where you can be your own boss. After all, when all the work you do will add funds to your own pocket, it is much more freeing and motivating than working hard to provide profit for someone else.
Additionally, by picking a job you can do from home, you will have much more control over your working day, schedule, and work-life balance. This is because you can choose what tasks to prioritize and when to take a break without having your supervisor breathing down your next. Something that many people find enormously freeing when it comes to their careers.
