Not Taught: What It Takes to be Successful in the 21st Century that Nobody's Teaching You by Jim Keenan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
We all know that there are things in life not taught in school, and if you're lucky, you pick them up in time to succeed at work and life. Well, Jim Keenan—after figuring them out for himself after being let go yet again—decided to help us all discover them sooner.
Many of Jim's "lessons" are not easy. They expect us to expand our network, create content, think, take risks, learn to sell, build expertise instead of experience, keep learning, and many other things that many of us rather not do. But as Jim learned firsthand, in this new and quickly changing land of work, these are the things necessary to stand out and to not only succeed, but to also have control of your future and options to fall back on.
The book is fairly short and a quick read, so I recommend it to anyone and everyone who wants a life with more options and control.
