Consciously design your career

Maybe it's a designer/ux way of thinking, but the book is a beautiful summary of the way I think about my career. Part Rich Dad, Poor Dad and part Malcolm Gladwell storytelling, it gave me a kick in the butt that I needed. It's been three or four days since I listened to the Audible version in one night and I've come up with the blueprint for something awesome... and when I say blueprint I mean logo, brand, website, strategy, definition of tone of voice, the start of recordings for free and valuable content, and a quick competitive analysis that's still a work in progress. Everyone should read the book. If you already know the things it has in it, and there's a chance you might, it's a motivational kick in the behind. If you've never thought about your job as one part of a career that you owe it to yourself to cultivate and grow, well, go read it now! The person who recommended it to me told me they had never thought of their job in these terms before. For me, it was a reminder of all the things that sometimes you forget in the rush of the day to day (that you should be focusing on the bigger picture too).

Developing Your Own Path

I really enjoyed listening to Forever Employable, twice! A concise book that provides a real action plan to developing your own employment path. As Seth Godin says "Don't wait to get picked, pick yourself.", and I think this book can help you do just that. I'm already in the process of taking some of these steps outlined in the book as its release timing couldn't have been better with my current work situation and desire for change.

Very useful ideas

Jeff Gothelf introduces a framework for how you can future proof your career and think more like the modern tech companies instead of the old school company man.

Told to build our brand, these are the next steps

It seems so easy to understand because I guess, we all reflect around this topic. The orientation found in this book is inspiring and set an order to those ideas we might be coming up to but not performing because inexperience or lack of reference. Would recommend this book also to recently graduated from college and joining to the workforce, it's a breakthrough to a new career path sequence. It makes me think of how old civilizations honored wisdom by listening experience sharing which we are might be dismissing from our modern lives.

Excellent Advice At Any Stage Of Your Career

What I enjoyed most about this book is that the lessons from start to finish can be applied to anyone at any point in their career. Mr. Gothelf explains in simple terms that your voice, your knowledge, your experience has value whether you're an accountant or a cake decorator or software developer. All of us have a unique worldview whether you are just starting out, whether you failed in a job or you have been an absolute success story. All of these career experiences can be leveraged (through steps recommended in the book) to make yourself forever employable because businesses are willing to pay for (and find) talented, dedicated, unique and qualified workers. Another aspect of this book that I enjoyed is the author gives you a step by step approach to becoming an employee that will be picked by companies rather than you searching for the next gig. If you like James Altucher, Seth Godin, Brené Brown or Taylor Pearson books then add this one to your bookshelf.

for those who are interested in a public career

unfortunately, the advice in this book is way too far from having universal applicability since the key scenario is around building a brand of your own through being on public via blogs, personal website, giving a speech at conferences etc. while there's a mention of an attempt to do same within organizations (if you're not ok to do a wide reach), a person must be willing to pursue this kind of route if you will... Thanks for the effort though!

Consistently Reinventing <br />

I liked it so much that I listened to it twice! The lines that stick to me the most are 1) we have to not just invent; but consistently reinvent. and 2) step off the corporate ladder and build your own.
