Sep 24, E rated it really liked it. Covey and co-author Jennifer Colosimo work to overturn the ordinary ways people seek and acquire jobs.
Choose a meaningful career, not a job. Sep 08, Elizabeth rated it liked it Shelves: I actually did not finish this book. And yes, it really did take me almost two years to not finish all of it even though its width is smaller than that of my thumb. So did I dislike it? Is that why it took me so long? No, I actually thought it was very thought-provoking. In fact, it was TOO thought-provoking.
Great Work Great Career by Stephen R. Covey
Or am I just trying to finish it for the sake of finishing it? What I DID get out of it was good. The book focuses on finding a way that YOU can contribute. Your contribution should include three things: It taps your talent, 2.
It fuels your passion, and 3. It satisfies your conscience while answering a significant need. It was a good book. I guess that self-help books require me to be just too involved for me to ever finish them. Jan 01, Elle rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book came to me at the right time. I am educated, sure, but I have no idea what I want to do with my life. Do I want to use that education? Or is there something else that is much more suited to my tastes. I am going through a quarter life crisis, no joke. This book was great because it really go me thinking and assessing where I am in life right now career in academia and what I am going to do with it or where I am going to go with it.
The biggest strength of this book by far This book came to me at the right time.

The biggest strength of this book by far is that it makes you think about yourself. It's like thinking with guidance. I would recommend this book to everyone, at some point in their life or another. I really took away that you want to be an active participant in your job to enjoy it and this book helped me get to a place where I was thinking about what I could be passionate about and actively, enthusiastic about while making money.
Great Work Great Career: Soundview's long-time friend Stephen R. Dec 25, Lily rated it really liked it. I started with the section, "Build your Own Village" because that's more where I am now. It's a nicer way and probably more useful and successful way to think about networking. I also liked the action steps at the end of each chapter which listed explicitly what to do to achieve the concepts just described.
This included a page of questions to discuss with others, which was a good idea because it prevents you from trying to build your life in a vacuum. However I didn't think the questions were very good because I wouldn't say those things to people. It would have been more useful to me if it were not in the specific language of the book.

You are not a job descripton with legs because your particular combination of strengths, experiences, talents and ingenuity has never existed anywhere else and will never ever be repeated. Transitioning from an Industrial age worker to a knowledge age worker is no mean task. What is going to be your contribution and how are you going about doing it? Your employer doesn't lack problems to solve and challenges to meet. The Industrial age paradigm talks about dependency on industry, boss, job descr You are not a job descripton with legs because your particular combination of strengths, experiences, talents and ingenuity has never existed anywhere else and will never ever be repeated.
The Industrial age paradigm talks about dependency on industry, boss, job description, standard operating procedure and everything else that makes you a victim. The knowledge age paradigm however concentrates on looking for significant problems to solve to make your contribution. It is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life.
And it is difficult to have a meaningful life unless you have meaningful work. Generally, they tell you how to position yourself as a information worker - problem solver by discovering problems with the companies your applying to and positioning yourself as the one who can fix their existing problem.
There was a lot of feel good bs in this, along with many inaccurate statements. I guess this book isn't really for me, because I'm not looking for the same type of amazing career that they seem to be catering towards. In my current job, I feel I find problems, I sol It was ok. In my current job, I feel I find problems, I solve problems, or document the ones that people don't want to fix just yet. It might be related to my position as a Quality Assurance Tester that makes this book sound much like useless vagaries.
I can see how some of the tips could help people, including myself, improve their resume or job search process. However, the book overall feels flimsy. Jan 02, Ahmed Al sanhani rated it it was amazing. This book is about creating contribution statement which distinguishes job seekers from career seekers.
