Have you lost the passion you once felt for work?

Marcus Buckingham, career coach and author, says it all starts with unleashing your strengths.

Record your strengths for one week following these steps:

  • Pick a verb. “Think about an action word that fully describes what you are actually doing,” Buckingham writes. Examples: caring, helping, organizing.
  • Drill down. What matters most? Whom are you doing the activity for? The content of the activity? Both?
  • Feel it. “You should look at your Strength Statement and have an emotional response to it. To that end, consider the language you use. Does it capture the essence of this Strength and how it makes you feel?”

By spending more time doing what you’re good at and that you feel good doing, you’ll find more happiness at work.
