Are you struggling in your career because you have never truly found your passion?
Do you feel like you are driving on the highway with the brakes on? Is there something out there you’d love to do and be passionate about, instead of slaving away where you are currently? Importantly, is this affecting your work and limiting your chances of career success?
You are not alone
Many people will have no other choice but to work, grow and succeed in careers they are not passionate about. The popular advice to “find your passion’ to achieve career success will continue to disappoint because the market does not pay for passion. It pays for skills and added value.
The current global situation is causing layoffs and disruptions to the global workforce.
Companies are declaring bankruptcies, firing staff and some industries may not survive. Career opportunities will change dramatically and the choices you’ll have to make will not be about your passion, but your skill and the value you bring.
So how do you achieve career success when passion is forcefully removed by unprecedented factors far beyond your control, leaving you helpless?
The PASSIONLESS book is a framework that will help you discover the unpopular but effective strategies within your control to succeed in your career consistently, irrespective of location, industry, job title or years of experience, especially if you have not found your passion.

Reviews for the PASSIONLESS book
This is a strong guiding principle to develop a successful and fulfilling career. People should not look for an end goal, but understand that what matters most is the journey. [The book is] quick to read, practical and easy to read. Great guiding principles and tips for people at the beginning of their career

I would recommend this book to young professionals at entry and mid-career level. A lot of young people today do not value the lessons learnt from mundane tasks, from acquiring skills that may seem boring or senseless - these lessons and skills in my experience have always turned out to be the most valuable ones.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this dose of truth and as promised, I got through it in one sitting. You are no longer at the mercy of the elusive ‘passion’ we all seek. Instead you have all the ingredients to take charge, design and cultivate the professional life you’ve always dreamt of, one day at a time.
