Publisher's Summary

If you suspect there could be more to life than what you're getting, this extraordinary program is about to prove you right! A life without direction is a life without passion. This dynamic program guides you, not to another unsatisfying job, but to a richly rewarding career rooted in your heart's desire. I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was reveals how you can recapture "long lost" goals, overcome the blocks that inhibit your success, decide what you want to be, and live your dreams forever! You will learn: what to do if you never chose to be what you are; how to get off the fast track - and on to the right track; first aid techniques for paralyzing chronic negativity; how to regroup when you've lost your big dream; and how to stop waiting for luck - and start creating it.

    "Best book ever!!!"
    Where does I Could Do Anything If Only I Knew What It Was rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Seriously the most straight forward, insightful book ever. It cuts through all the junk and goes straight to what you need to do to find what you want to do and why you act the way you do.

    "Brilliant!"

    A must for someone who is not looking for just another job, but desires to quell the restlessness of not finding the "right" path or career. If traditional job hunting books are missing the point with resumes and skill set analysis, THIS is the book you want and need!

    You may even recognize Elizabeth Gilbert's Flight of the Hummingbird reference to author Barbara Sher's definition of scanners, but there are so many more jewels within these pages! Thank you Barbara!

    "Disappointed"

    I couldn't finish this audiobook. I found the content to be disorganized and largely irrelevant to my situation. The narration sounded like a kindergarten teacher, both in tone and in phrases used ("a lost and found for dreams"). The various exercises are inane. If you like rah-rah feel-good phrases and you were raised by dysfunctional parents, then you will probably enjoy this book. If you are a reasonably well adjusted adult looking to change careers, then probably not.

    "Wonderful"

    Very intelligent author with a impressive vocabulary and prose. Offers practical solutions and discusses the "inner work" necessary before setting out on your passion hunting quest.

    "Confused, Unfocused, Without a Target Audience"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm not sure anyone would fully enjoy this book It had a few interesting parts, but it was scattered.


    What could Barbara Sher have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Sher should have had a single audience in mind. Instead, she spoke to countless individuals while creating exercises irrelevant for most of these specific groups she was discussing.


    Any additional comments?

    Like so many books in this genre, this work claims to help you find direction and know what type of business one should pursue. The first step in this exercise was to ask you what you wanted to do.... Which seems kind of dumb because if you knew what you wanted to do you would need this book. I believe this was her first book, if that's the case it surely representative of her early work and hopefully she has improved since. I believe she is knowledgeable but this book is entirely unfocused.
