Mid-career Self-assessment. MOJO

Marshall Goldsmith has impressed me several times in
audiobooks and podcasts with inspiration and gap analysis
methods for helping senior level people and those in mid
career
to deal with their circumstances or what ails them.

Found MOJO, a book Marshall Goldsmith recently
co-authored, while browsing recently and was so
engrossed, I skimmed it in one evening and re-read it
again the next day.  It is that good.

[MOJO stands for: positive spirit toward what we do
now that starts inside us and radiates outside of us.]

There are at least a five very good things this book
provides for people who have been in the workplace
for a few years…Mid-career people, senior level people,
execs

1.  ingredients of great mojo
2.  MOJO and is inverse nojo
3.  Capturing your measure of your mojo
4.  MOJO killers in our careers
5.  re-igniting your mojo

This is not a how to instruction manual.  It is an
intellectual mirror with x-ray vision to help us
see what makes us tick, how we think and
what makes us happier.

Comments provide more detail on some of the good
things in the book.  Highly recommended for mid-
career professionals.
