Figuring out what you need from your current or future job can help you create a career path that best fits your personality, needs, ambitions, and lead to a more fulfilling life.  I call this your “work-happiness formula“.

Take a moment to list out the factors that are important to you.

Once you have your factors, take the top 5-7 and place a multiplier in front of them (not exceeding 100%) in order to prioritize them.

Unlike math formulas, your equation may change over time as you grow and learn more about yourself.

What does your equation look like?
