This was not the book I wanted or needed, but it may be just right for you or someone you know. As others have said, the authors translate a design perspective to designing a satisfying career/professional path. Their advice is well-intentioned book, accessible, and serves up fundamentals. Major points are summarized in capsule summaries and there are challenges to apply their principles to one's own situation.

Though not bad advice, it's not particularly deep or new and may be better suited to those who are considering a traditional path (or shifting paths) vs. something non-traditional or entrepreneurial. It's also probably best for those who are newish graduates and early career OR those in professional/job fields without a lot of exposure to business/career development (trades, teaching, clinical jobs, retail, engineering, etc.) given the emphasis on soft skill and value-reflection.… (mere)

Some great advice (or is it counsel?), great tools, and great steps to working on your personal compass to wayfair a better life. Some tools I'll certainly use at some point in the future and some exercises I want to complete.

This is a worthwhile read for anybody interested in taking an active role in designing their future.

I appreciated this book's focus on having an intentional plan for figuring out your next steps in life. However, I found it much too narrow in scope. It's exclusively targeted at those who want a traditional career, working for someone else. There's no mention of entrepreneurship or doing things completely off the beaten path. The authors also treat certain careers as terrible life choices. For example, they see being a poet as a sure way to end up living in a cardboard box somewhere, with no mention of the non-monetary rewards that come with choosing such a career, or even the fact that although it may be difficult, nothing is impossible -- including making money as a poet (Hello, Rupi Kaur!).

It's a very traditional, academic, and in today's world, narrow-minded approach to making a living -- and making a LIFE.

Takes a design engineering perspective on career discernment. I liked that. Also, most chapters have some practical exercises to work on, to help you figure out what you want and how to get there.
