Hillary’s Journey

Or how to stir your work life’s direction closer to “I always wanted to make a difference – through my work – and now have what it takes to do it

– – – – –


You wish your job or the type of work you do, made you feel different.


Not like a “cog in a profit making machine”, a “number on a payroll” or someone insignificant.

As it’s the case, right now.

But as a person who can bring something valuable to the table

and make an impact in other people’s lives

through your work.

Because, deep down, wanting to make an impact is what “drives” you.


Even if the resources and tools you’ve used so far – to find a meaningful job – have failed.

Even if you doubt, at times, having what it takes to make a difference.

Even if, lately, you’ve started to believe that only the “lucky ones” can achieve such a goal.


Still. You’re not the kind who easily gives up.


You’re convinced there must be a way to “crack” this problem.


You simply haven’t figured out the solution, yet.


And it bothers you. (Almost to the point where it pisses you off, at times.)


Even more when, in your mind, the type of work you want is pretty clear, overall:

I want a job that makes me say: “This work is worth doing.” Because it suits, both, my skills and personality. (…) Because I like what this job is about. Its outcome too… and I feel useful while doing it.”


Now, you just don’t understand why finding this type of work; a meaningful one, is so hard.


I wish it was easier. (…) And knowing what truly suits me best, for work, could be clear.”


I get you.




Because I said things like these too, in the past.


So, if you’ve wondered about it…




You’re not alone in having this problem, of doing all you can…

and not getting any closer to what you’re looking for, to what you seek.



Scanning through countless job descriptions.

Completing your fair share of career quizz.

Testing your IQ, your EQ and any other acronym they might come up with.

Even answering things like “7 weird questions that will help you find your life purpose” that a friend sent you.


Only to realize that, after all these efforts, you end-up with the same result.

E-ve-ry single time.

That is: being more confused than before, and clueless about what you should do next.




You wish there was some sort of roadmap.


A series of steps that would provide you with specific and practical information to work with.


So you could go from “only doing regular (meaningless) work” to “starting to make work I care about”.




The piling up of all these “try and fail” has made you doubt yourself lately.


Even question if chasing that goal – of finding your “work fit”, as I call it – is worth it.


Do I have what it takes…?

Because finding a regular job, I can. I know how. But finding a meaningful one? I suck at it.


If we were to have a coffee together, and talk about this situation, we’d certainly realize that…




… but how the work you do and its outcome, put together, make you feel.


You don’t want your work to be “just a job”. To “just do it”, neither.

You want “more” out of working.


You want to matter.

(That is, on top of making a living.)


And in your opinion, “doing work that helps improve someone else’s own work, or life, even if only just a little” is actually a way to matter.


I’m one of many people who would agree with you.




… the “fit” you’re trying to find – with a type of work you would actually care about doing – exists. Because other people have found their own before. So yours exists too.


And this “bigger goal” you have in mind – of building a meaningful work life – has also been achieved by the same group of people as well.


You may even know some of these “Difference Makers”, as I call them.


Here are two of the most famous ones in that group: Muhammad Ali and Steve Wozniak (Apple’s co-founder).


Ali is known for having chosen boxing as a way to make a living. He also used this work to promote civic rights for the African American.


This “dual-choice” wasn’t innocent or random. It was hugely influenced by him seeing a big problem.

Which one? The limitations the American society (of the time) tried to impose on him, because of his skin color.


Steve Wozniak’s own choice of computer engineering – as a career – wasn’t random neither. It also came from seeing a big problem.

Which one? New technologies (like computers) were making people feel insecure, powerless and excluded, in many ways.


He, Steve, believed technologies could be used “to do good to people”, and empower them.


So, one reason he founded Apple (with Steve Jobs) was to make sure his work would help give the general public an easy / user-friendly access to the “power of computers”. Something only big (and rich) corporations, like IBM, had access to before.


That’s it? I only need to find a “big problem”, try to do something about it, and then my own job problem will be… fixed too? I’ll have my “work fit”?


There’s more to discovering a “work fit” than simply “trying to solve a “big” problem”.


Besides, not all problems are equals.


Still, for Ali and Wozniak, to successfully put a finger on an issue that had much influence in their respective lives was a major breakthrough.


One that allowed them to envision being able to answer “What I want to do with my life? How can I make an impact in other people’s lives?


For having finally found “their” answer, Ali and Wozniak might appear as “lucky ones” but, in reality they aren’t that different from you.




Because they, too, wanted “more” out of doing the type of work they were doing.

Not just a paycheck.




At least, this is one of the many things I learned from spending countless hours studying the lives of “Difference Makers” like Ali, Wozniak, Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, and many other men and women you may look up to. Past or present. Famous or not.


From listening and asking questions to people who didn’t find their “work fit” as well.


All this research work helped me identify a few core elements that people who have found their “work fit” or “purpose” all share.


One of these elements is what I call a “founding problem”; the problem that had the most impact in their own lives.




Discovering insights like this one – of a “founding problem” – proved to be very valuable.


Even more when they were put together.


As they highlighted a very natural sequence of small breakthroughs someone had to experience, in order to reach that point where he or she could say: “Well, it’s pretty clear, now, what I must do for work… and with my life… if I really want to make an impact.”


This sequence is replicated in “Hillary’s Roadmap”.


A 7-step process for you to go from “I don’t know how to find meaningful work and make an impact” to “I have what it takes”.


Hillary’s Roadmap” is the first tool Lee Var has built for workers like you.


It’s named after the first person to conquer Mount Everest, and “Difference Maker” himself; Edmund Hillary.


It’s also based upon a blueprint that “Difference Makers” – like Hillary – have outlined during their journey to successfully find their “work fit”.


Something – finding their “work fit” – which has changed the direction of their (work) lives in a positive way.


A change you wish you could experience yourself.

Sooner than later.


Who says you can’t?


Even more when…




We’re both aware (you and I) that you like to challenge yourself.


For the thrill of seeing what you’re truly capable of.


Often using, as an inspiration, other people’s successful strategies, “how to” or blueprints.




To give yourself some sort of an edge.


The one you like to count on.


At least, when what you’re after is that “Yesss!” you like to say, once you’ve achieved a goal. Right before adding “I (really) wasn’t sure if I could do it but see (?!), I had it in me!


(I get that. I do almost the exact same thing.)


Using “Hillary’s Roadmap” is no different.


No different than these other blueprints you’ve achieved success with.


As it’s based on real life – success – stories.

As it’s also set to give you this edge, this leverage you’ve been missing so far…


… to 1) find a meaningful job, 2) give a new direction to your work life and 3) realize, from there, that “making an impact” really is in you.




… my question to you isn’t: “How fed up are you to feel insignificant (as an employee), almost like a cog, doing pointless work?


But rather its: “Do you believe you’re ripe enough to take your work life into a different direction, and start to make it matter?
