 Living Authentically with David Pullara- CR17 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 32:05

Former Google employee David Pullara shares his insights on building a career and life aligned with your authentic self.

 Living Authentically with David Pullara- CR017 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 32:05

In this week’s Career Relaunch episode, David Pullara explains why he decided to leave his job at Google and instead focus his energies on his family and a few passion projects. We discuss respecting your authentic self and pursuing projects that feed your true interests. During today’s Mental Fuel segment, I described what happened when I decided to pursue a couple of my own side interests. Key Career Insights * Your authentic self is who you are, how you enjoy spending your time, and comes to life when you’re doing work you enjoy.  If you’re working hard at something you love, it doesn’t feel like work. * Walking away from a reputable organization is never easy, but if your work there isn’t allowing you to be your best self, there’s nothing wrong with moving on. * Exploring your personal interests doesn’t mean you have to necessarily transform those interests into a career per se. Simply giving yourself permission to pursue some side interests allows you to feed your soul, live authentically, and uncover some surprising opportunities along the way. Tweetables to Share Resources Mentioned * David wrote this blog post, Why I Left Google where he explained why he decided to leave his job at Google behind. If you’ve ever struggled with leaving your job behind, I’d highly recommend checking it out! Listener Challenge During this episode’s Mental Fuel segment, I talked about the importance of giving yourself permission to pursue one of your side interests. What’s one small, concrete step you will commit to taking today to finally get moving’ on that side interest or project you’ve been toying with for so long? I’d love to hear what you plan to do in the comments below.

Afterwards, during today’s Mental Fuel segment, I’ll share a couple ways I maintain my own work/life balance. Key Career Insights * Proactively defining your own career narratives helps you manage multiple career changes and maintain a compelling, professional trajectory. * You can’t please everyone, so if you are going to seek the approval of others, focus only on those people who truly matter the most to you. * Any major career endeavor can take its toll on you, so you have to make sure you take care of yourself and allow yourself to recharge, recalibrate, and rest. Tweetables to Share Resources Mentioned * I mentioned I love browsing the news to get my mind off my work. I use Flipboard for consuming news, which helps me “check-out” a bit and read about non-career related topics. Solonia loves using Feedly! * Great Harvard Business Review article on the importance of work-life balance (Mar’17): If You Want to Be Happy at Work, Have a Life Outside of It.
