The ongoing pandemic is creating a time of rapid transition. It’s as if we’re waking up from a deep slumber, and as we do so, we’re re-examining every aspect of life– especially our livelihoods and the work we do in the world.
If you’re someone who’s dug up the internet to find ways to rediscover your impulse, you would’ve infallibly come across Jonathan Fields and his work with unique imprints or Sparketypes®️. Jonathan is an award-winning author, producer, business innovator, and host of one of the world’s top podcasts, Good Life Project. He’s the chief architect and driving force behind Sparketypes, also the world’s first purpose, engagement, and flow archetypes.
In addition to writing award-winning and bestselling books like his upcoming, Sparked: Discover Your Unique Imprint for Work that Makes You Come Alive, How to Live a Good Life, and Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt Into Fuel For Brilliance, Jonathan has founded several companies with a focus on maximizing human potential.
In today’s episode, Jonathan joins me to unfold the 10 different Sparketypes we all come under, the significance of our Primary, Shadow and Anti-Sparketypes, and how these help you get attuned to doing what makes you feel alive. Jonathan also talks about his transformative journey leaving his six-figure job as a lawyer to pursue his dream, and about his achievements and insights out of the Good Life Project.
Highlights from our conversation:
- How to identify the deeper impulse inside of you that wakes you up in the morning and gives you the feeling of coming alive
- About the field-tested and inimitably accurate Sparketype 2.0 assessment and how to make the best out of it
- How to reimagine, rework, and reinvent the things you’re already doing so you don’t have to go through a massive disruption to get to where you want to be
- The action steps to pursuing a life of your calling – discover your imprint, try not to make disruptive changes while you begin (unless, of course, you’re in a toxic environment), see where your impulse lines up and where it does not, and find out how you can apply it to existing or any new work that you can take up.
It’s a good one! Enjoy!
