Mo Gawdat and Samantha Clarke

Today I’m speaking with the wonderful Samantha Clarke, happiness consultant, speaker, podcast host, & author of Love It or Leave It: How to be Happy at Work.

As a happiness consultant, Samantha is on a mission to liberate individuals from work they no longer love to find a path to true work happiness. As a faculty lecturer at the School of Life and The Guardian Masterclasses, she facilitates workshops on career potential, building a portfolio career, managing stress, confidence and authentic leadership.

Samantha is also the host of the podcast series, "Conversations with Samantha&" and the newer series, "Love it or Leave It with Samantha&...", in which she interviews individuals who have taken the reigns on their own work happiness.

I found so much value in Samantha's words that I decided to add my own personal reflections to the end of this episode. I think you will too.

Listen as we discuss:

  • The anti-climactic launch of her book just before lockdown
  • Her past life as a style consultant
  • How we use work as a distraction
  • Are we supposed to enjoy work?
  • What will happen to the workaholics when we have a universal basic income?
  • The effect of COVID on where we think we should be living
  • How work has become more challenging at home
  • Samantha's key tips for working at home in a healthy way
  • Boundaries between "work" and "toxic" internet use
  • Her book, Love it or Leave It
  • Have a roadmap before quitting your job!
  • Are you working a job, a career, or a calling?
  • Ask yourself: Is this serving me, or am I serving it?
  • My personal reflections on this awesome conversation
