Workers Want To Create and Do Good

I have served career clients of all ages for many years. What most people want is the chance to make a positive difference and the chance to be creative in their work.

I recently read an article listing nine careers that people over fifty find most appealing. That list consisted entirely of service occupations that contribute to a sustainable world. My clients are typical. Workers of all ages want to make a positive difference. Sustainable work. Sustainable world.

Creativity can be understood in a narrow sense as producing fine or applied arts. I prefer a broader understanding of creativity. I think of creative work as work that requires some improvisation. Some discovery. Some going beyond what you know.

Creative work stretches you.  Sustainable work supports the greater good. This is what our world needs. This is how we grow.
