Sparked: Discover Your Unique Imprint for Work That Makes You Come Alive

by Jonathan Fields (Author)

Read by the author.

Discover your unique imprint for work that makes you come alive, fills you with meaning, joy, purpose, and possibility, then spend the rest of your life doing it.

We’re all born with a certain “imprint” for work that makes us come alive. This is your "Sparketype", your DNA-level driver of work that lets you know, deep down, you’re doing what you’re here to do. Work that motivates you, fills you with purpose and, fully expressed in a healthy way, becomes a main-line to meaning, flow, performance, and joy. Put another way, work that “sparks” you.

Drawing upon years of research, experimentation, more than 25 million data points generated by more than half a million people, hundreds of deep-dive conversations with luminaries from science to art to industry and well-being. Award-winning author, serial wellness-industry founder, and host of the top-ranked Good Life Project, Jonathan Fields and his team at Spark Endeavors developed the Sparketype imprints and methodology that is the basis of this book.

Sparked takes you deep into the world of the Sparketypes, revealing an entirely new depth of insights about what makes you come alive in work life, along with what empties you out and trips you up, so you can avoid those life-drains. You’ll discover tons of case studies, stories, and real-world applications, creating a comprehensive guide to help you discover what you are meant to do and how to get started.

This book will help you:

  • Discover, with far more depth, what sparks you, what drains you, where you stumble and come alive, so you can reclaim a sense of direction, control, and purpose
  • Understand the “real” reasons certain experiences, jobs, and roles leave you empty and know how to make things better, without having to endure big disruptive changes
  • Learn from real-world, relatable stories, case studies, and data-driven insights
  • Identify the action steps to begin immediately transforming the way you work and live

In his groundbreaking book, "Sparked: Discover Your Unique Imprint for Work That Makes You Come Alive," Jonathan Fields embarks on a journey to uncover the hidden passions and talents that lie dormant within each of us. Combining powerful storytelling with practical exercises, Fields guides readers through a process of self-discovery, helping them identify their unique "spark" - that spark that ignites their soul and propels them towards a life of purpose and fulfillment.

At the heart of Fields' philosophy is the belief that work should be more than just a means to an end. It should be a source of joy, creativity, and deep personal satisfaction. Through a series of engaging anecdotes and real-life examples, Fields illustrates how people from all walks of life have found their spark and transformed their careers into something truly meaningful.

One of the key concepts in "Sparked" is the idea of the "Spark Archetype." Fields identifies four distinct archetypes - the Creator, the Connector, the Healer, and the Sage - and explains how each one has its own unique strengths, weaknesses, and motivations. By understanding their own Spark Archetype, readers can gain a deeper understanding of their natural talents and how to best apply them in their work.

Fields also emphasizes the importance of "Flow," a state of heightened focus and creativity that occurs when we are fully engaged in an activity that we love. He provides practical tips and techniques for achieving Flow, such as setting clear goals, breaking down tasks into smaller steps, and creating a supportive environment.

Throughout the book, Fields weaves together inspiring stories, thought-provoking exercises, and actionable advice to help readers uncover their unique spark and create a life that is truly fulfilling. "Sparked" is an essential read for anyone who is seeking a career that aligns with their passions and values. It is a book that has the power to transform lives and unleash the full potential that lies within each of us.
