I love this book! I have found it so inspiring, thought provoking and motivational. It has even led me to get out of the lockdown rut and start my own company.
I really think the old adage, ‘you only get out what you put in’ is so true for The Squiggly Career. I have never read a career development, or business book before, (I’m usually into thrillers or biographies on 90s grunge musicians!) but I really dived deep into this one. I was like a student studying for my final exam.
I had 12 days to read it before the book club meeting and I really wanted to have it finished so I could get the most out of the session and know what everyone was talking about. Plus I was just finding it so good. I had a two-highlighter system, (Yellow, for lines/quotes I liked and that I thought would be good to go back to and pink for any references to read, watch, go to, like TED talks etc). I also had little post-it tabs on important pages, made post-its of quotes and ideas I liked to stick on the walls and used a pencil to do the exercises, so I could come back and do them again, or at least rub out any mistakes.
