Out of Syllabus-Career Success Tips that no one taught You
Career is a very important facet for almost every person. It gives one a sense of purpose, provides financial security as also fulfilment. Most importantly it teaches a person so many different things and helps them to grow as an individual and a professional.
But, does it do all this in real life?
The answer to this is a simple NO. Most people end up feeling frustrated and confused with regard to their careers. There is a lot of negativity and stress that is associated with it and invariably the other facets of their life also end up being affected adversely. Balance is very important in a person’s life for success to be enjoyed. If this balance is affected negatively due to one’s career the happiness and fulfillment through their personal life, health, etc., suddenly seems irrelevant.
So, what is the true cause of this imbalance and stress that arises from one’s career?
The core problem with regard to anyone’s career related issues is a clear lack of planning. This is further compounded by the fact that most people do not get any inputs with regard to how careers should be planned and managed. Invariably, even those who have studied for a particular career start work and are faced with confusion and lack of direction because the basic element of planning is absent.
The book “Out of Syllabus – Career Success Tips that no one taught You” not only gives hands on and practical steps with regard to career planning, but also goes into great detail about what one needs to do on a day to day basis towards achieving career success.
“Out of Syllabus” helps define the stages on one’s career and in that context anyone can use this as a practical guide. People starting their careers to even those who have worked for several years and are now wondering about the next steps will find the inputs and steps detailed in this book to be of great use. This book approaches career planning in an absolutely novel and unique manner by compartmentalising the various stages of anyone’s career and defining what needs to be done in each of these stages.
The book compartmentalises a career into 3 buckets and gives clear action oriented inputs with regard to what one should focus upon during each of these buckets as also the learning that they should take out from the same. The author has included a 4th bucket, which is about giving back to the society and others around you by sharing the experience and expertise gained during the 3 buckets.
Several practical inputs and tools are discussed in the book which will enable the reader to operate with a greater sense of clarity and purpose. One interesting thought in the book is about PSS, which stands for Personal Success Secret. The author’s contention is that every successful person has a formula bit in reality there is nothing called as a success formula. The book defines how anyone can create their own, effective PSS.
