Each year, millions of talented college and university students graduate with little or no real sense of what their next step will be, yet they are determined not to settle for so-so careers; they are looking for great careers. Smith points out that only a few fortunate souls are born knowing exactly what they want to pursue in life. The rest of us have to stop making excuses and start asking ourselves tough questions about achieving our goals. In his straightforward, no-nonsense approach, Smith itemizes and dismisses all the usual excuses, fears and worries that people hide behind when trying to find their true direction. His unusual take on this challenging conundrum is both universal and timely, and his stunning TEDx talk on this subject has been viewed by more than six million people so far. This is the perfect book for all college graduate who are wondering where they fit into the world, or for mid-career men and women who find themselves heading down the wrong path. It won't necessarily be easy, but if you follow Smith’s guidance, your career dreams can indeed come true.

Denn Leidenschaft allein reicht nicht, um in einem Job glücklich zu werden. Cal Newport zeigt anhand zahlreicher Fallbeispiele und mit vielen praktischen Hinweisen den verblüffend einfachen Ausweg: Wer Zeit und Mühe darauf verwendet, in dem, was er tut, immer besser zu werden, der wird mit zunehmender Meisterschaft immer mehr Gefallen an seiner Tätigkeit finden. Das ist der beste Baustein für Zufriedenheit im Job und eine große Karriere.

Scheidungen, kein Kontakt zu den Kindern, Gefängnis wegen Betrugs - all das hat Harvard-Professor Clayton M. Christensen bei ehemaligen Kommilitonen gesehen und es hat ihn zum Nachdenken angeregt: Wie konnte es so weit kommen? Und wie macht man es besser? Seine Überlegungen führten Christensen zu den drei grundlegenden Fragen: Wie führe ich ein glückliches und sinnerfülltes Privatleben? Wie werde ich beruflich erfolgreich und habe Freude an meiner Arbeit? Und wie vermeide ich es, im Gefängnis zu landen? Er findet die Antworten in Wirtschaftstheorien, die er auf persönliche Lebensentscheidungen überträgt - so zum Beispiel die Einführung einer Familienkultur, um den eigenen Kindern Leitlinien an die Hand zu geben. Dabei gibt er jedoch nicht rigide Verhaltensregeln vor, sondern liefert Denkanstöße, mit deren Hilfe der Leser zu seiner ganz persönlichen, maßgeschneiderten Strategie für ein erfülltes und erfolgreiches Leben gelangt.

I wrote this joke book for people who are not afraid to read books that might insult them with the topics discussed: the purpose of Comedy is to keep an Open Mind and to have fun no matter if it comes in book form, on stage or in a movie of play. Have FUN, FUN, FUN reading this books as that what it's for: Laughter Is The Best Medicine...Go Now, Read some of these jokes and have a laughter filled day: Seniors from viral flood photo get a happy ending...what exactly is a happy ending when you are much older...Once banged a guy in a cemetery. He told me he lived in a dumpster. He had a hot moist mangina . He let me bang him in his dumpster and after I came I jerked one out while he tugged at my balls and then we parted. He was a very nice man. Once watched a guy jack off in the Eastern Promenade Cemetery. Every time I tried to come closer he'd act like he was going to get up and leave. There's no such thing as death. Something you don't say to the mob ever. Did you know I'm Jewish: I'm tight with my $$$ & my ass's very tight. Everybody has a tight ass just like Fort Dix. My favorite place in the world is Fort Dix. I divorced my boyfriend: I threw her in the ocean. Lake titi caca. Oh, it's so nice to p with you oh it's so nice to p with you. Har har har, I'm a Pirate: well, blow me down. I'm a trooper, I like to take it in the pooper, I sit on tha' crapper, I think I'm kinda dapper, my boyfriend walks in, I think it's a sin, he pulls down his pants, then spreads his ass cheeks, he tells me I'm weak in the knees, he moves in closer, says can't you smell that smell, I say, "Let me get a whiff, is that my dinner?" He says, "Yes it is, now you're gonna suck my weiner," I say, "Yay, that's great, it's my deenar." If it's after 8 it's 2 late!!! Then he says, "You're not finished BOY, now it's time to suck my asshole out." I say, "YES SIR, YES SIR!!!" half mocking him and get right down to business!!! Chrissie Hynde = Chrissie takes it in the behind or Chrissie Behind...Choke cherries = I'd like to choke on her cherries as they're very ripe and sweet choke cherries.The Illuminati will do anything to bring down 'The Age of Kuntsent'. They really will. You want a child to have sex with then you'd better move to the South as in Tennessee or Asia as 'The Age of Consent' in Tennessee is 12 years older...then you can have all the hot illegal sex you want but be careful when you get caught in any other state. It's a really crazy and cold world that we live in. Children deserve respect not verbal pain and physical abuse. That's one reason I'm never having children in this life: I don't want them to turn out like I did. All dressed up with no place to go...I'll wait until my next life to give birth again. I've done it in past lives. I wish I could remember what I've done in my past lives and who I've been but the information is a closely guarded secret. I'm overwhelmed as it is. I must have had a lot of power in my past life as this life has turned out to be quite a doosey as in getting ripped off all the time and losing a ton of money...Life Lock = Life CockButterball turkey = I'll butter your balls 'n baste your twerky and turn it into turkey jerky Tampa = tampex = trampex Finger puppets = Finger fuckers Welcome to Black Hole, ME I sprained my penis trying to bang my girlfriend. When you have sex with your girlfriend don't get too excited. Be patient and be gentle with your penis. The rest can wait, it really can wait...What did the dog say when it didn't want to eat anymore after somebody rang the doorbell yup yup yup yup yup... J.O. = jerking off, jerk off, who wants to jerk me off right now? Cocktails = cock tails St. Nicholas = St. Dicholas Lunch = Funch, fucking after lunchSeitan = Satan doesn't really exist except 'Hell IS My Thoughts'...I'm related to the Devil & the God and Jesus is just alright with me...
