HBR’s What Happens When Your Career Becomes Your Identity?

I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time.

Anna Freud

What happens when your career becomes your identity? This Happens to so many of us? Here are 3 of the Questions HBR’s contributor Janna Koretz suggest asking yourself.

1. How do you think about your job outside the office?

2. How do you describe yourself? How much of this description is tied to your job, title, or company?

3.How would you feel if you could no longer continue in your profession?

Great questions. Read the article for the full analysis.

Then get a copy of my book ‘Your Career’ Ditch It? Switch it?’ which provides a deeper dive into how you can ditch it and gain the identity that brings lasting satisfaction.

Cheers!
