Dick Richards has a new book coming out called Is Your Genius At Work? 4 Key Questions To Ask Before Your Next Career Move (available in November). He just put a pdf of Chapter 1 online to give you a sneak peak.
The four key questions are:
1. What is your genius?
Once you acknowledge that you do or may have a genius, the next
step is to recognize its unique qualities.
2. Is your genius at work?
This question has two meanings: Is your genius working in the
way that it should? and Can you bring your genius to whatever
work you are doing?
3. What is your purpose?
Your purpose is a specific external expression of your genius. It is
the earthly reason your genius exists.
4. Is your genius on purpose?
Satisfaction, productivity, and success in your work arise to the
extent that the work allows you to bring the energy of your genius
to the fulfillment of your life’s purpose.
