You can design your own career, so you love what you do! You only have one life: why settle for anything less? Whether you’re an entrepreneur or working within a company, Get a Life, Not a Job shows how you can make it happen for yourself. You’ll learn how to move towards a fulfilling career that offers greater work-life balance, financial security, and personal control over your future -- and more sheer pleasure and inspiration from the work you do. You’ll learn how to allocate more time to roles you enjoy, and shed roles you can’t stand... identify career choices you’ll be passionate about, and build your skills and abilities to match them... improve your career without leaving your employer, and make your position more resistant to downsizing... define a mix of several stimulating and liberating wealth-building activities that keep your life engaged and balanced... keep personal relationships healthy while you pursue work you’ll love. This book doesn’t just teach you powerful career techniques: it profiles people in all walks of life who’ve used these them to build truly inspiring careers. With greater workplace uncertainty than ever, you can no longer afford to let anyone else control your destiny — or to maintain outdated “psychological contracts” with your employer. You need to take control of your own career and future. With this book’s help, you can do just that — and make work more fulfilling than you ever dreamt possible.
