    Building a fulfilling life and career can be a daunting challenge. Too often we charge down a path leading to "success" as defined by others and are left feeling dissatisfied. We all have unique skills and qualities, but it can seem so natural to just do what everyone else is doing, only later figuring out our own path. Is there a road map that will enable you to defy conventional wisdom, resist peer pressure, and carve out a path that fits your unique skills and passions? Harvard Business School's Robert Steven Kaplan regularly advises executives and students on how to tackle this issue. In this indispensable book, Kaplan shares a specific and actionable approach to defining your own success and reaching your potential. He outlines specific steps and exercises to help you understand yourself more deeply, take control of your career, and build your capabilities in a way that fits your passions and aspirations so you can achieve your goals.
