While everyone has their own strengths and unique skillsets, many get caught up in following a career path according to others’ definitions of success. Rather than forging a career path that suits their own aspirations and embraces their own terms of success, they look to others’ expectations in making career decisions and are ultimately left feeling a void.
In “What You’re Really Meant to Do,” author Robert Steven Kaplan, faculty member at Harvard Business School, shows readers where to begin in overcoming the boundaries of others’ expectations to take control in pursuing careers that speak to their individual strengths. He lays out specific steps and exercises to help readers fully understand themselves as they explore their passions and pinpoint exactly what they’re meant to do.
Pulling from both his personal experiences and his experiences advising executives and students, Kaplan works to reshape readers’ perspectives so that they can clarify their sense of success for themselves and work more effectively toward meeting their potential.
