If there’s one book that has made the biggest difference to how I view myself, how I prioritise what I choose to do and to recognising my skill set – it would be ‘What Color Is Your Parachute? 2019‘I’ve got the 2017 version (it’s been updated and re-released every year since 1975) after my dad thought it might help me to galvanise what I do with my time and energy. It has a whole bunch of interesting activities and workbook style questions that help you to work out what your key skills are and then prioritise them. It was written to get people into jobs that they might enjoy and find fulfilling but I’ve found it very useful in a ministry setting.
I highly recommend this if you are not satisfied in your work or how you spend your time and energy, it doesn’t have to lead to a career change, it’s an eye opener in terms of skills set.
