Description

The guide to leading a creative, passionate, and multifaceted life—big enough to embrace all your dreams


Are you unwilling to settle on doing just one thing "for the rest of your life"? Do you jump at the chance to learn something new—or, after achieving success in one field, find yourself yearning for new challenges and looking around for something different to do? If so, you may be a Renaissance Soul. The Renaissance Soul is the first book devoted to this personality type, and in this updated edition—in paperback for the first time— author Margaret Lobenstine offers a life-planning strategy perfectly in tune with those who fear becoming "a jack-of-all-trades and master of none." Discover how to design a vibrant, fulfilling life and how to:



• Manage your time the Renaissance Soul way

• Thrive on many interests without feeling scattered or overwhelmed

• Pursue your passions even if they "don't pay"

• Carry your dreams forward no matter what your day job is.



Stocked with creative, doable exercises, relevant resources, and interviews with successful Renaissance Souls, this is "one self-help book that is exactly as advertised, well thought out and offering sage advice" (Boston Globe).

        October 3, 2005
        Some people just can't seem to settle down: they jump from career to career, from interest to interest; they chafe at being pinned down to one job or self-definition. This need for variety and love of finding new challenges, says career and life coach Lobenstine, can be a positive trait. Lobenstine's aim is to help such people find ways to pursue their varied interests without feeling overwhelmed. Her "focal point" strategy suggests picking a small number—usually four—of interests to pursue for now, interests that might be exchanged for others at a later time. And the author proposes various ways to integrate one's career into these focal points: if you're passionate about your work, it might be one focal point; for others it might be a way to pay the bills while they pursue other interests. One inexperienced older woman with a longstanding desire for a career in the art world found a clerical job at a museum, where she had access to curators and an opportunity to volunteer her graphic skills. Lobenstine has identified a situation rarely addressed by self-help books, and her advice is sensible, concrete and do-able. Agent, Betsy Amster.
