I consider helping my kids understand themselves, so they will head into the direction of a career that will fulfill them, the biggest task of my life. Thanks to the newest book by School of Life I now have back up help: A Job To Love is designed to help us better understand ourselves and locate a job that is right for us.
At this point I might as well just give The School of Life my credit card info and have them send me everything they put out. Absolutely love what they do!

What happens if instead of ignoring opportunity, you triage it?”
Sugru is one of the most magical materials I have ever come across. Think of it as Play-doh and Superglue having a baby. And I love how they keep sharing ideas on how to use it in your home. It’s my go-to way to fix my iPhone cables.
