Why Work? (GWTW684)

This past Saturday, I attended a podcast conference in Portland, Oregon. It was a chance to step away from the computer and be around people, talking about podcasts. It was exciting and exhausting, with a ton of takeaways. Inevitably, every conversation led to the same question: “What’s your podcast about?” A simple question with many answers, but I still struggled to answer succinctly. I wanted a one-sentence explainer, but there are so many stories explaining what Getting Work To Work is all about. I shared the origin story with one person and another, the show’s evolution. At the same time, another conversation centered around a single word to describe the episodes where I don’t have guests. After the conference, I kept thinking about these conversations and thought, “Why work?” So, that’s what I’m going to talk about today.

Eight areas of work I’m endlessly curious about and searching for in this show:

  1. Excellence
  2. Growth
  3. Change
  4. Mastery
  5. Legacy
  6. Learning
  7. Innovation
  8. Process
