The Thirtysomething Guide to Career Fulfilment
How To Be Fulfilled: Your Career
Adding up all the time we spend at work in an average lifetime comes to around 16 years. Sixteen solid years spent doing something you don't even like sounds pretty silly, right? But too many of us put up with our work, instead of working to change what we've got or to find a fulfilling career. The book covers subjects including,
How to discover what fulfilment means to you
How to find a career based on what's most important to you
How to recognise the talents and passions you've got
How to get clear on your skills and knowledge
How to transform your current job
How to go about creating career options
How to deal with things that might hold you back
Work out whether being self-employed is right for you
How to best narrow down your options and make the right decision
Resources for advice, job hunting, etc.
Alongside these subjects and more, there are many different exercises designed to get you thinking about your career and what you really want.
Here's some feedback I've had from people who have worked through it,
'Congratulations on a well-written self help book.'
'...plain language and helpful exercises...'
'Involved me from the beginning...'
'...a fantastic resource.'
'Now I realise I can make the most of my current job and take time to find the right job for me, not just the next one that comes along.'
Don't be fooled into thinking that you don't have to be fulfilled at work, that only a select few enjoy what they do. It really is possible for you to be fulfilled in your career, and it's down to you. You really can have the kind of career that you want to have, and it's your responsibility to make sure that you do - nobody's going to do it for you.
