This blog is about the event, “Waking up fulfilled with your work” which I organize in the Philippines on a weekly basis, specifically about its birthplace, the reason why I do this.
What is the event “Waking up fulfilled with your work”?
This is a event where we will know more about our work, specifically how to work feeling more fulfilled.
The program goes with introducing ourselves, sharing our current (or previous) job, how we feel about it, and most importantly, how we can transform it better.
It is organized in a relaxed way.
The reason why I do this event
“I don’t want to get out of my bed. I don’t want to go to my workplace.”
This is the feeling that I had before, or even nowadays, though it is not as frequent as before.
I am surprised to talk to some people who have never gone through that sort of morning that sabotages us, but I have to admit that I have been through it.
How about you?
The reason to organize this event is so simple.
I aspire to empower people who are in the same situation as I was in before to live in the future where they wake up and go home fulfilled with their work.
This is my motivation.
How will this event help us?
This event will support the participants in two manners.
Surround yourself with people who believe what you believe
I can’t emphasize enough how helpful it is for us to have people who believe what we believe in our life when achieving something, whether it is waking up 5am or stopping smoking.
They will encourage you when you are feeling down.
You can find those people in this event.
Bring back some action plans
We can’t solve any problems just by staring at them, let alone complaining about them.
Instead, we are required to take some actions.
You can learn a lot of tips from other participants that will help to shape the actions that you can bring back to your life.
Why in the Philippines?
And just in case if you are wondering why I practice this in the Philippines, not in Japan where I am from, I am going to illustrate it a little. (A handful of people here in the Philippines have posed that question.)
The study shows that the number of population in the Philippines will be growing until 2090 (Correct me if I’m wrong, please) and which means there will be more and more workforces in this country.
I can easily picture the future (and present) where more and more people wake up feeling depressed, not fulfilled, in this country because job could be a birthplace of negative feelings unless we are very careful to handle it.
However, based on my observation, there have been not enough attentions to the question HOW WE WORK both from employers and employees in this country. (I am not accusing anyone. We are in the process of shifting.)
I just can’t let go of this and feel excited to see the future where more people wake up and go to their work place vividly in this country.
We are waiting for you
Lastly, a little bit about the event.
There will be no lectures provided in this event. (As matter of fact, I was the one who learned the most from other participants in previous event.)
We are going to share our current (or previous) job, how we feel about it (you don’t need to read the faces of others since you are not having an interview for your promotion.) and how you want to change it better.
If you want to know more about this event, please come and join us. I organize this event every week.
I believe we can live in the future where we wake up feeling fulfilled with our work.
I hope to see you soon.
