06 Pivot Points

The Art of Work Pivot Points

Jeff discusses a different view of being stuck as you pursue your calling.

Here’s Jeff Goins on the principle of Pivot Points.

Show highlights

In this episode, Andy Traub and I discuss:

  • Whether or not failure is a part finding your calling
  • The two common mistakes you must avoid when you get stuck
  • Why pursuing your calling is difficult
  • How to respond to failures in your life
  • Two ditches you must avoid when responding to failures
  • What failing can actually do for you
  • Why you should be concerned if you are not failing at something

Quotes and takeaways

  • Failure is a prerequisite for success
  • What makes life extraordinary is not the chances you get, but what you do with them
  • If you are not failing you should be afraid because it means you’re not trying
  • Failure is not what prevents you from success, but what leads you to success
  • If you’re not failing, you’re not in the game

If you want to move down the proven path to discovering what you were meant to do then we encourage you to pick up a copy of The Art of Work.

We hope you’ll join us in our next installment of The Art of Work Conversations where Jeff discusses why our calling leads us to much more than a fulfilling vocation.
