It used to be that if you studied and worked hard, you could
be assured of an extremely satisfying career. But in a world of constant
layoffs and dying industries, it has become increasingly difficult to “plan”
your way to success.
So what is the solution? Well, when it comes to dealing with
uncertainty, nobody handles it better than successful entrepreneurs. That’s why
you want to take the same approach they do! Based on extensive research and
interviews, Own Your Future shows how to apply the simple model they use—act,
learn, build, repeat—to reinvent the way you maneuver in an unpredictable job
Here’s how it works: instead of picturing your perfect career
and working backwards, simply begin with the direction you want to go and take
a small step. Thinking alone will never change your life—you must act.Then evaluate the lessons you learn from that first step, build on them, and take another step in your desired
direction. Repeat this process until you have achieved your goal.
When you consider that your job—perhaps even your
industry—may disappear, you have no choice but to take control. Filled with
stories of professionals of all kinds who have profited from this proactive
approach, Own Your Future gives you the tools you need to succeed—no matter
what comes your way. Download and start listening now!
