Hey Kayla! I’m so glad those questions are helpful! I agree — if you haven’t experienced much fun and creativity in a workplace before, you can absolutely draw from your personal life and get creative (see what I did there?? lol) about how those things could fit into a work setting. Or maybe you can remember previous projects that you worked on in school, or for a volunteer organization, or even in past jobs (you may have been bored by the job, but enjoyed one aspect of it or a certain project) that were really engaging. It’s also perfectly OK to look outside of your own life for inspiration and see what parts of other people’s jobs you think would be fun and creative. (I recently wrote a blog about using jealousy to clarify what you want for yourself that might help.)

Hope that sparks some ideas for when you sit down to consider your answers to these questions!
