When trying to explain what this book is all about to a colleague, I noticed that we don't seem to have a good expression for "body of work" in German. "Lebenswerk", your life's work, comes close but is too depressingly retrospective.

Actually, there is a bit of retrospective involved here. Pam Slim encourages you to take a look at what you've accomplished in your life so far, but to also imagine where you want to go. The motivation being that some day, when you've reached that point where you look back at your life's work, you'd be able to say "Yes, this is what I wanted to do." But you're not there yet - it's still time to steer things in the right direction. This book promises to help you with this goal.

Now, I'm usually a bit reluctant about all these self-help books of pretty much any kind. They're often very hype-y, postulate "new and better" methods, try to cheer you on but often fall short in terms of applicable, practical advice.

I've taken one of Pam Slim's online courses in the past (Power Teaching, which helped me immensely when creating my own workshop), so I know her style and that it works for me.

After defining what that "body of work" is all about, the book takes you through the steps of looking where you're coming from, what you have to offer and how you work. Once you have a clearer picture of yourself and your actual goals, the book explores ways to get you to where you want to be - overcoming the inevitable fear that's involved with this undertaking, collaborating with others (like-minded people as well as mentors and influencers), and finding a definition of what success would actually mean for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Ultimate Workbook for Creating Your Own Meaning 1. Januar 2014
Von Debra Eve - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Body of Work is a deceptively quick and easy read that will only reveal its depth in the work you do.

If you're looking for step-by-step advice on discovering your purpose or career, you won't find it here. You will find inspiring stories and insightful questions to give your body of work new meaning and chart a future course:

"No one is looking out for your career anymore. You must find meaning, locate opportunities, sell yourself, and plan for failure, calamity, and unexpected disasters. You must develop a set of skills that makes you able to earn an income in as many ways as possible."

What is a body of work?

"A body of work is big and deep and complex. It allows you to experiment and play and change and test. It supports creative freedom. It includes obvious things, like books, software code, photographs, videos, process improvements, paintings, and stories. And not-so-obvious things, like community development, love, movements, memories, and relationships."

How do you find it? "We must tap into our deepest roots." How do you transition from one place to another? "We all need a side hustle," especially if you're still in the corporate arena.

I love that Pam doesn't embrace the Pollyanna effect. She doesn't ask us to analyze successes with a keener eye than challenges and failures. In fact, one of the greatest skills we can develop is to view adversity as a means of growth. Her advice for hard times:

1. Fall apart.
2. Honor what you have.
3. Never forget, but choose to create a new future.
4. Be supported, and support others.

My favorite example: Amanda Wang, a young woman with bipolar disorder who, through therapy and training as an amateur boxer, is helping others with their own fight by making a documentary.

Finally, Pam asks us to redefine our notions of success. She doesn't quote Erma Bombeck, but in a nutshell: "Don't confuse fame with success. Madonna is one; Helen Keller is the other."

It all sounds deceptively obvious, but Pam punctuates each concept with dozens of questions only you can answer. I lost track of the number of times she said something like, "Grab a pen and piece of paper" or "Dig deeper and write."

Body of Work is, in fact, a workbook. Be prepared to fill a journal. I obviously didn't do so on this read through, but plan to over the next several months. If the publisher isn't preparing a workbook edition, I'd be surprised.

Highly recommended for explorers who enjoy taking the road less traveled and digging deep.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Comprehensive Career Guide for the New Economy 3. Januar 2014
Von Jenny Blake - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Pamela Slim's Body of Work is the perfect companion for anyone looking to find the common threads in their career and weave them into a unifying platform for the future, in an economy that increasingly values agility, creativity and innovation. Her book is jam-packed with the perfect blend of anecdotes and insanely helpful exercises -- each chapter could be an entire book unto itself!

Pam's recommendations are compelling, clear, and road-tested with hundreds (if not thousands) of entrepreneurs and corporate employees that she has worked with. I appreciate that she doesn't try to force a one-size fits all set of next steps or "shoulds," but rather guides the reader through the meta-level of career planning by finding common themes, building healthy habits, navigating fear, forming a meaningful support network, and effectively sharing your message with the world.

For those who find chapter outlines helpful, the Body of Work methodology can be summed up as follows:
-Define Your Roots
-Name Your Ingredients
-Choose Your Work Mode
-Create and Innovate
-Surf the Fear
-Your Definition of Success
-Share Your Story

Making a major career transition is not a one-time checkbox that we get to simply mark complete and move on from. It's an ongoing evolution, and Pamela Slim has written THE handbook you need to navigate each one with greater ease and aplomb.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must-read for making a career that makes sense 2. Januar 2014
Von Susan Baier - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In Body of Work, Pamela Slim has synthesized what what many of us have had to learn by necessity -- that our careers aren't defined by our last job, or degree, or single capability, but by the unique accumulation of expertise, experiences, affinities and skills that makes up each of us. With wisdom, care, and with appreciation for the wide range of work environments and preferences, Pam guides the reader through examples and exercises toward better understanding and communicating their goals.

A wonderful read for anyone, at any stage in their career, whether corporate employee, entrepreneur, or something in between.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book no matter where you are in your "career" 31. Dezember 2013
Von Charlie Gilkey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I received an advance copy of the book and was delighted to see that this book is Pam at her best. Her book illuminates what so many of us in the field are seeing - the traditional notion of the "career" is dead in this new world of work. To be successful, you have to weave a coherent story that pulls your past - the good, the bad, and the ugly - to the forefront, and her book shows you exactly how to do that. While the book is full of big ideas, it's also backed with application questions, stories, and a lot of heart; Pam writes as a teacher because that's who she is.

Whether you are just starting into this new world of work, are moving into a new industry or job, or just want to take a good look at how you're currently building your body of work, this book is a must read. It's the book I wish I would've had earlier in my life and I'm so happy to have it now.

Wow. If America had a business coach, it would be Pamela Slim. I've been following Pamela's work for a few years now and was excited about reading Body of Work. I finished it in two days. Easy to read with powerful and practical advice.
