Have you ever thought that a 9 to 5 job isn’t the right thing for you? Did you ever get impressed by all the stories about the really successful people and how they often didn’t study? Did you think that you should do something totally different, but for a number of reasons you are stuck with what you do?
I know, very pathetic. But I guess we all have similar thoughts from time to time. And some people are struggling even more with these thoughts. I met plenty of people with non-traditional CVs, not following the standard path of life. And I could imagine that they would especially like this document, but not only them: “A Brief Guide to World Domination* – How to Live a Remarkable life in a Conventional World *and other important goals” written by Chris Guillebeau. I like the style – especially the humour that is already shown in the title. But I recommend it for the content which is actually thought-provoking. In essence it’s a call for “start with the end in mind”, and then work against the end, based on your key strength.
I have seen most of the content before, but as we know a different presentation will lead to different results. This presentation triggered me to think about the two key questions of the document. Thanks Chris!
