In this work burnout podcast Val and Nathan talk about the difference between a job that “pays the bills” and a vocation that truly lights us up and why so many of us struggles following the path to a vocation that not only pays the bills but also provides ourselves and the world deep and lasting meaning. They also offer a process that you can follow to better understand and even extricate yourself from a job does not light you up and bring you the meaning you deserve to have in your work life.
Join me and my husband, Nathan as we break down professional burnout, or maybe better understood as a full-blown crisis in his profession as an eye surgeon and together walk through not only the events that brought up the crisis, but the realizations, learning, growth, and huge blessings of self-discovery that have grown out of his crisis. Yeah, it was about work. But not really. The crisis taught him more about himself than anything else.
