This book had been recommended for a few years now and I do not know why I waited so long to read it. It is a quick read because it is delivered through a ‘comic book’ like format that allows Daniel Pink to drive home 6 major points that people need to keep in mind as they search for that great job.
Because I love “happenstance” so much, i love #1 There is no plan. Through simple dialogue and pictures, he shows that we have to be open to new opportunities.
#4 Persistence trumps talent is a great message to people who feel they “do not have all the skills to apply to that job”.
#5 Make excellent mistakes, is simply great advice for people to try things that may be outside their comfort zone because you never know where it will lead to.
To learn what #2, 3, and 6 are, you will need to read this book 🙂 They are great ideas too and it will take you less than an hour to read. So get it from you library because Daniel Pink is once again “spot on” with his thoughts.
