So Good They Can't Ignore You Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love by Cal Newport 9781455509126 ( Hardback, 1960) Delivery US shipping is usually within 12 to 16 working days. Product details Format: Hardback Language of text: English Isbn-13: 9781455509126, 978-1455509126 Author: Cal Newport Publisher: Little, Brown & Company Imprint: Grand Central Publishing Publication date: 1960-01-01 Pages: 288 Product dimensions: 152.4mm (w) x 215.646mm (h) x 25.908mm (d) Overview In an unorthodox approach, Georgetown University professor Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice, and sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving their careers. Not only are pre-existing passions rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work, but a focus on passion over skill can be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. Spending time with organic farmers, venture capitalists, screenwriters, freelance computer programmers, and others who admitted to deriving great satisfaction from their work, Newport uncovers the strategies they used and the pitfalls they avoided in developing their compelling careers. Cal reveals that matching your job to a pre-existing passion does not matter. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it. With a title taken from the comedian Steve Martin, who once said his advice for aspiring entertainers was to "be so good they can't ignore you," Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto is mandatory reading for anyone fretting about what to do with their life, or frustrated by their current job situation and eager to find a fresh new way to take control of their livelihood. He provides an evidence-based blueprint for creating work you love, and will change the way you think about careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.
