"A life without direction is a life without passion," says motivational specialist, therapist, and career counselor Barbara Sher. In I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was, a sort of broader, less dense, and less intimidating version of What Color Is Your Parachute?, she reveals how to "recapture long lost goals, overcome the blocks that inhibit your success, decide what you want to be, and live your dreams."
This is a perfect book for new college graduates or anyone sick and tired of languishing in a dead-end job or relationship--yet reluctant to make drastic life changes due to uncertainty about what would actually inspire them. I Could Do Anything combines the I'm-not-buying your-excuses inspiration of Dr. Laura Schlessinger with the soothing, analytic encouragement of Dr. Martin Seligman in his classic Learned Optimism. In other words, Sher will pick you up off your butt and get you moving. She's included enough self-analytical exercises in here to save you hundreds of dollars in therapy.
Whether you're looking to make improvements in your job or personal life, Sher will teach you how to determine what your goals are, and how to successfully reach them--even if right now the only thing you know is that you're vaguely to very unhappy and haven't the foggiest idea what to do with yourself.

She also has great practical exercises - you must do the exercises - and when you do yo will have both great insights about yourself and what you want, as well as practical things to do to get started on the path.
I continue to order this book for friends when they are trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives or what direction they want to go in.
Keep in mind that this book, "I Could Do Anything", is not a book just about "scanners". It offers guidance and exercises to help all personality types get a better handle on who they are and how to use that new understanding to create a more fulfilling life for themselves.
Personally, I found "I Could Do Anything" helped me get past my considerable mind chatter to find out what's deeper inside me, driving me in life. I also have learned a great deal about how beliefs developed early in my life, though no longer useful as an adult, continue to underly many of the choices I make that keep me stuck. I found the practical processes very effective in becoming aware in a day-by-day and moment-by-moment way of where my focus is. With that awareness I'm now more able to make choices that keep me moving with the natural flow of my talents and desires.
I must say I highly recommend "I Could Do Anything" and if like me you resonate with the section on "scanners" I recommend getting "Refuse to Choose...". It's a real workbook for "scanners".
