Do not look for the dream job, you've got it!


Cal Newport's book "The Dream Job Lie" is the ruthlessly honest counter-proposal to the variety of the current "Do what you like the most, then the ruble rolls by itself" -Advice.

Those who only dream of better work and follow an unattainable, nebulous vision of self-employment, lapse into real life in "here" and "now": "Do not follow your passion, but let the passion follow you in your endeavor, so well to be everyone's notice. "

Building on success instead of dreaming


Based on four rules, author Cal Newport shows that you can stop the search for the supposed dream job immediately if you get the maximum out of your current work. Because when you get your career, the fun comes automatically. The success and the money anyway.

The first rule "Do not follow your passion" is the most radical. Newport makes it clear that "autonomy, competence and belonging" are the prerequisites for a greater desire to work. Because "passion sets itself when you master your job."

Accumulate Career Capital


In the "career capital" that you accumulate in the course of your professional career, Newport sees the key to the best possible job satisfaction. Simply put "so good that everyone notices." And this is how it works:

  • Expand core competencies
  • Commitment
  • Rare and precious skills that you can offer

Achieve success with performance-oriented learning technology


How do you get there? With a "performance-oriented learning technique", which Newport brings to you on the basis of many case studies and personal experiences.

Conclusion: Cal Newport has written his book "The dream job lie" for anyone who regularly frustrated scan the job ads - without realizing that the current work is just right. If you learn to recognize and use the opportunities that are right in front of your nose.
