Roadmap: The Get-It-Together Guide for Figuring Out What to Do with Your Life
This hands-on guide for tackling the career search is chock full of actionable exercises and real world wisdom to help you identify-- and start pursuing-- what you really want to do.
I have no idea what to do with my life.
I know exactly where I want to be, but don't know how to get there.
I can't stand my job and need a change.
If these thoughts are swimming around in your head, don't freak out. We've been there. For over a decade, Roadtrip Nation has traveled the world interviewing accomplished individuals in every field to identify how people 'get it together' and build meaningful lives- people like the editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, the scientist who decoded the human genome, professional chefs, radio hosts, educators, entrepreneurs, and even a woman who gets paid to concoct wacky jelly bean flavors.
You know what we found? People who are the most fulfilled-- the ones who seemed almost predestined for greatness-- didn't have a bulletproof, step-by-step plan. In fact, they often had no idea where they'd end up. So how did they get to where they are?
They followed their interests. They trusted their gut. They shed the expectations heaped on them and created meaningful lives based on what mattered most to them. Now it's your turn.
