How do you find your happy? Do you have to make big changes? Or can small changes be enough?
In this episode, we talk about figuring out what will make us happy. Sometimes these involve big changes (like moving) and sometimes small changes (like buying a new dish rack). There’s a lot of emphasis on making decisions that are right for your career or will open up opportunities for a new career. However, in the end, we’re human. We need to consider our lives and overall happiness.
Maybe Humans Are Like Orchids?
However, sometimes the grass isn’t always greener—but how can you tell that before you take the leap? As academics, we’re trained to always look for something more. Keep going to that next step. We’re trained to never be satisfied. But maybe that next step won’t make you happy. How do you know if you should keep going? Humans could be like orchids. They’re finicky plants that have strict living conditions and their seeds must have certain types of fungus to grow.
So, we all need to find our fungus to flourish.
