At some point in your career you start asking the question, “what am I doing here?” Maybe you’re not there yet, but trust me, you’ll get to the stage where you wonder if you’re on the right career path, if you should perhaps change direction, or if you can turn that passionate hobby into something that pays the bills.

Once you discover it, there are countless books that will help you Get Things Done or cram it all into a 4-Hour Workweek. The problem is, how do you discover what your IT is in the first place?

That’s where Scott Wittig‘s Holy IT comes in.

Scott is a good friend of mine. We almost launched a company together, discussed our respective careers, and debated the importance of the important things in life. So, trust me when I say, Scott has lived through everything that he shares in his book. With practical steps, case studies, and some humor, Holy IT is the book you should read, if you need to discover your special purpose in life–Steve Martin need not apply. 😉

Anyway, Holy IT is about 100 pages long (short?) and will take you less than 4 hours to read. But, once you’ve read it, be warned! It could change your outlook on life!

  • Gregory Blomstrom

    This looks like a great book! I have a daughter who just started college – this sounds like a great book for her to read. Seems that so many of us spend 4 or more years in college, get a job and then wonder what else we could or should be doing! I know this from personal experience. I left the corporate world in 2007 to pursue my passion and I haven’t looked back. Taking that first step, though, is the hardest, especially after your life is well on its way (a family, house payments, and many other ‘things’ to pay for or be responsible for). Getting a grasp on what your purpose is at the beginning stage of your life, will lead to much more satisfaction further down the road. Another great book (apologies if I shouldn’t be mentioning another book – please feel free to remove this sentence if it’s inappropriate) that people should consider, along with this book, is ‘Now Discover Your Strengths’ – that book was a game changer for me many years ago. So, to all, happy reading!

    • Thanks so much, Greg! I really hope your daughter enjoys it. You make a great point about identifying ‘IT’ before life gets in the way. Please have your daughter reach out to me after she gets through it – would love to chat with her about her experience with the book. Great call on the ‘Strengths’ book – I highly recommend the follow-on – ‘Strengths Finder 2.0’ and the online tool it gives you access to. All the best! -Scott
