Section 1: Overview

Here's what we're going to cover in this course.


When you're frustrated with your job, it's not unusual to find your friends and family are less than sympathetic. You may even have friends who say things like, "I've lived all my jobs." Or, "What doe it mean to hate your job?" What accounts for these differences? That's what we'll explore in this lecture.


In the 19th century - and even the first part of the 20th - people didn't question their jobs. You got a job. You did your job. Period. What's different now?

Section 2: Ten Things

How can you talk about your current job in ways that help you feel strong and powerful? We're not asking you to be chirpy and cheery "everything's great." You will be honest in a way that helps you move forward.


This lecture teaches you a creative exercise that may seem woo-woo at first. If you'll go along, you'll find your creative juices flowing and you'll tap into your underlying feelings in a unique way.


In this lecture you'll discover how to use your current job as a resource to reach your ultimate goals. It's not about positive attitude: we'll talk about realistic, down-to-earth ways to leverage your current position to reach your dream job.


It's easy to find yourself working for someone else's dream ... or the dream you had five, ten or even forty years ago. What's the dream that matters for you, today? That's what you'll learn to recognize in this lecture.


Names have power. In many cultures, naming is a form of creation. You will discover how to put a name on your conflict and how naming gives you power to survive, thrive and change.

This lecture gives you an exercise that's fun, but also extremely effective, so you discover a technique to protect yourself from negativity in the workplace.
