Even though I have read quite a number of books about purpose and career and have been living a career where I work with many millennials on similar topics….I still find Inez's book to bring something useful and fresh to the table.
What makes this book unique is the bunch of questions Inez is trying to bombard you with (in a very positive sense.) Along with many blank spaces you can use to take your pen/pencil and write your thoughts directly on the book. The book pushes you to have that self-talk with yourself that you may not necessarily have in other inspirational books you read. And that is gold.
Inez’s life story is not like many others. She embodies what it truly means to live a purposeful career. Imagine at her age, she has managed to work voluntarily (for full time!) in issues she is passionate about; she has spoken for thousands on young people in many different countries, founded a facilitating program about purposeful life and look at her now she just wrote a book. She leads us by example through her stories, not just talking.
And lastly, the book is very practical. The call to action is not to blindly follow your passion and quit your job, but to take measurable small steps, one at a time, through slowly increasing pace. Typical advises you won’t find often in this self-help industry.
For those of you millennials who are still wondering what your career would be in the future and what does it take to really create a purposeful career, I highly recommend you to read the book and create conversation with yourself which the book would be more than happy to help you start!
I love how i can draw and personalize this book to my experience. It feels like writing a diary, but with a purpose: not only to be mindful about who you are at the moment but also about who you want to be in the future. A worth reading (and doing) personal development book!
