This is a book about how to take working life in new directions – how to negotiate the labyrinth of choices, how to think about personal ambitions and motivations, and ultimately how to take concrete steps to finding a fulfilling career. It is a self-help book with a difference. Standard career guides are filled with pop psychology and bullet-point advice for writing CVs and making action plans, but 'How to Find Fulfilling Work' casts its net wider. While not ignoring the insights of psychology or the need for practical planning, it reveals wisdom about work found in sociology, history, literature, film and philosophy. It may be a false illusion that there is some perfect dream job out there for us, an ideal calling or vocation. But this book is premised on the idea that it is possible to find work that is life-enhancing.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The problem was that all the alternatives – changing career, starting over again – seemed impossible. I couldn’t trade in the security of my comfortable life for uncertainty. #2 I was on honeymoon, sitting on a beach in Sicily, when I had an epiphany. I realized that I wasn’t going to be happy sitting behind a desk for the rest of my life making rich people richer. I had worked hard to get this qualification, but was now left thinking, Is this it. Is this all I get from life. #3 I am a very conventional person, yet I still consider myself to be deeply unconventional. I have to accept the tension. I'm more conventional than I might otherwise be because I've got young kids and I'm the single breadwinner. #4 The modern world is full of people who are dissatisfied with their careers. The death of the job for life has led to a world of short-term contracts and nomadic career wanderings. We are constantly being forced to make decisions against our wishes.
