I recently reread The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Need. It’s from the motivation expert Dan Pink and what’s unique about the book is that it is in the format of a Japanese style comic book.
Here’s my most favorite quote:
But I am asking you to think about your PURPOSE... to recognize that your life isn’t infinite. And that you should use your limited time here to do something that matters.
And on successful people:
... truly successful people deploy them in the service of something larger than themselves. They leave their companies, their communities, their families a little better than before.
The book talks about six lessons about building a great career. You can find the book on Amazon here.
