What’s the secret to living a joyful, meaningful and fulfilling life?

That’s the question on the lips of most people in our Happy Startup Community.

We can get to a certain point in our lives where we’ve achieved all the trappings of what society calls a successful life but still feel like something is missing.

Particularly when it comes to our work.

In his book, Drive, Daniel Pink says that what motivates everyone to do their best work is to have autonomy, mastery and purpose.

Autonomy is about our ability to choose how we spend our time. This could be to do with what work we do, how we do it, who we do it with and who we do it for.

Mastery is about honing our superpowers, working within our zone of genius and finding flow in what we do.

Purpose is about doing work that is intentional, impactful, contributing to more than ourselves but also deeply rooted in who we are.

The Mid-life Pivot, which can happen at any time of life but is more likely to happen after our mid-30s, is about redefining our work and lives based on finding more autonomy, mastery and purpose.

For this final Ideas Café of the year we’re going to invite you to reflect on your experience, knowledge and achievements to date and consider the pivot you’d like to make in 2023.

Laurence and Carlos will share some of their ideas around making “playful pivots” that can help you effortlessly reset your direction so it doesn’t feel so scary or hard.
