In September 2014, author and psychologist Daniel Goleman, who wrote the book Emotional Intelligence, published an article on LinkedIn entitled “Starting a New Career? Consider Good Work.”
In this piece, Goleman recounts a conversation that he had with Howard Gardner about finding meaning, enjoyment, and fulfillment in one’s career. Gardner offers job-seekers and those transitioning into new jobs three key pieces of advice:
1. Decide what you would really like to spend your life doing.
2. Think about people whom you admire and respect.
3. Consider where you want to work.
