So Good They Can't Ignore You
BY Cal Newport
The book is a manifesto on the utmost importance of getting good at something rare and valuable. This evolution of getting good at something is what brings about career happiness, not just picking something you're passionate about.
Cal argues that, "follow your passion" can be bad advice. He goes on to juxtapose the passion mindset from the craftsmen mindset and says that the craftsmen mindset is a sure fire way to lead you to doing work that you love.
The craftsmen mindset says that "no one owes you a great career. You have to earn it–and the process won't be easy." The Craftsmen mindset "asks you to leave behind self-centered concerns about whether your job is 'just right,' and instead put your head down and plug away at getting really good."
