When to Jump: If the Job You Have Isn't the Life You Want by Mike Lewis

Into the Wild

Read When to Jump: If the Job You Have Isn't the Life You Want Online Free - When Mike Lewis was twenty-four and working in a prestigious corporate job, he eagerly wanted to leave and pursue his dream of becoming a professional squash player. But he had questions: When is the right time to move from work that is comfortable to a career you have only dared to dream of? How have other people made such a jump? What did they feel when making that jump—and afterward?

Mike sought guidance from others who had “jumped,” and the responses he got—from a banker who started a brewery, a publicist who became a Bishop, a garbage collector who became a furniture designer, and on and on—were so clear-eyed and inspiring that Mike wanted to share what he had learned with others who might be helped by those stories. First, though, he started playing squash professionally.

The right book at the right time, When to Jump offers more than forty heartening stories (from the founder of Bonobos, the author of The Big Short, the designer of the Lyft logo, the Humans of New York creator, and many more) and takeaways that will inspire, instruct, and reassure, including the ingenious four-phase Jump Curve.

Watching my niece's gymnastics competition - I use the term "competition" loosely considering I changed her diaper less than 3 years ago - I'm struck by the difference in the little girls' faces as they jump from the balance beam. They are all the same age. They all have had similar classes. Yet,...

There are lots of books out there which promise you your dream life, job and love if you follow the authors simple rules and it can all seem like a bit of a pipe dream. Mike Lewis has tapped into something a little bit different with When To Jump. Using his own experience of taking the leap from...

I would rate this book 2.5 stars. I had such high expectations when I started, but it just fell flat. There was no inspiration like I expected, although I did enjoy some of the stories. The author was annoying, arrogant, and one of those guys who steps in crap and it turns to gold.

The author is, unfortunately inaccessible to the average American. The sentiment is there and the stories from others were great but some of this really comes off as contrived. The idea of the "little voice" felt inauthentic as it weaved its way through the narrative. It felt overplayed.

I enjoyed the variety of people and their stories. Some great advice and encouragement for me as I think about my jump.

A collection of mini-bios about people who made major career changes. It doesn't really offer any practical advice aside from telling people to just do it.
