SS30: Grant Baldwin shows us that Who You are is More Important than What You Do
Nov 7, 2014
Today is episode 30 of the Story Signals podcast, and I'm so glad to welcome Grant Baldwin.
Grant is a speaker, writer and podcaster who helps people find and do the work they love. His main speaking gigs include grade school and college students, educator groups, and churches. His message of the intentional pursuit of meaningful, important work is one we all need to hear.
I had a great time speaking with Grant. We have a lot of common ground in our childhood, educational development, and experience transitioning to independent work. With his speaking and podcasting background, it was a very smooth conversation, and one I didn't have to edit much (thanks Grant)!
There are several aspects of this show I think you'll glean wisdom from. Here are several that stood out to me.
When you transition from a steady job (and paycheck) to independent work, plus the balance of frustration and excitement which accompanies it.
How to better communicate your goals and desires.
Effective ways to deconstruct big goals in to daily and weekly action steps.
Why the unplanned moments in our life are big chances to chine.
Why who you are is more important than what you do.
