How To Find Your Vital Vocation.
One of the things I loved most about the book was the way Carr broke everything down with questions to ask yourself, exercises to help you discover talents you may not even be aware you possess. It is a book you can come back time and time again and always find something new and helpful to get you on your journey to a more rewarding and satisfactory career. I would recommend Brian Cormack Carr’s book to anyone who’s unhappy with their job.
The problem most people have is that they know what they don’t want but may not be sure what they do want. They also don’t have a plan or strategy to get to where they want to be. Once Carr decided what his life purpose was and how to get it, he started helping others to do the same. He finally put it all in print for the rest of us to follow.
In this book, Carr offers a number of tools and techniques designed to help a reader listen to his or her heart’s calling. He promises one thing: that calling is always there. It may be more of a whisper than a roar, and you may be studiously ignoring it, but you’ll never be able to shut it up entirely.
The book is organized in two parts: 1) Finding your vocation and 2) Getting it. This is not your typical book that has you fill out a questionnaire to find your natural skills. It is really a methodical approach to finding what matters most in life and work, identifying the skills you need how to create an action plan to get there.
There are also sections on finding the right company, getting their attention, interviewing and overcoming internal obstacles (that is a big one for most people). If your dream job is solo entrepreneur, this will give you a plan on starting your own business.
This actually is a great book with exercises, practical advice and additional resources. I would never suggest you walk away from your current job without a plan (neither does the author), but if you are not totally happy were you are now (or if you are unemployed), this is a road map to where you want to go. Expect to take some time, at least a couple of months if you can, to get started down the path of a life of fulfillment. It will be worth it. As Carr states, “Sometimes, we just need to get out of our own way and listen to that inner voice that has been whispering to us all along.”
