The book assumes you are lost in life

What disappointed you about Pivot?

I felt this book was for people so down on their luck that they needed a fresh start.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I stopped listening in the first chapter, it made me feel sad.

Any additional comments?

If you are looking for guidance out of a real problem where you have lost hope, this may help.

Very Helpful and Inspiring

I’ve been trying to pivot in my career for 2 years with little success, so this book is very helpful to me right now. Now, a lot of the concepts are found in other self-help books, but sometimes we need to hear them over and over! I particularly found it helpful to know we don’t have to have a big, concrete plan to move forward. I was getting stuck here thinking I had to have everything figured out before I made any changes. It’s also great that he emphasizes that you don’t need to burn bridges or take risky actions. I think I’ll get the e-book as well so I can highlight sections. One little observation more than criticism, is that at the end he kind of takes on the entire ball of wax of self-development in his action plan, but in many ways making big changes does require effort in all areas of your life. The author does a very good job narrating the book as well. I recommend this book if you are looking to make a big change - even if you don’t know WHAT you want to do exactly.
