"A book that first captures the heart and then goes on to snare the mind. The lessons go down easy, but they refuse to go away....If there is an unclimbed Mount Everest in your life, I highly recommend this book. It will first help you decide if you're on the right mountain; and then it will guide you to the top." —H. John Greeniaus, Former President & CEO, Nabisco, Inc.

Looking for a job?

Changing careers?

Returning to the workforce?

Trying to find balance?

Rethinking your lifestyle?

Searching for fulfillment?

When you come to an important crossroads in life-particularly when it is forced upon you by an unexpected or unhappy event-it is human nature to ask, "Where have I gone wrong?"

That is not the right question to ask. As a matter of fact, such brooding and negative thinking will take you entirely in the wrong direction, away from where you really want to go.

The better question to ask-the question that opens doors, creates opportunities and helps take you where you want to go-is: "Where Have I Gone Right?"

In Where Have I Gone Right? The Right Mountain Guide to Getting the Job and Life You Want, Jim Hayhurst offers his simple, unique approach to making key decisions and living a more satisfying life. His engaging, conversational writing, compelling metaphors and anecdotes from his years as a career counselor and business leader make this simple and practical guidebook the new standard for managing your career — and your life.

From the Inside Flap:

Whether you are searching for a job, a new career path, or a more satisfying life, you first have to answer the question:

Who Am I?

Every job interview starts out with basically the same question: " Well, tell me about yourself. Who are you?" You have only a few short minutes to stand out from the crowd and to make a lasting, favorable impression. And beyond any specific job search, you have to understand who you are before you can decide what you are going to do to ensure that you are fulfilled at work, at, and at play.

Do you know who you are? Can you describe who you are? Most of us don't, and can't. Try it. It sounds so simple. But it is not easy.

Who am I? Did you describe your job? Is that who you are? Did you use a lot of generic words that sound like everyone else? Aren't you unique?

Who am I? If you don't know who you are, how can you possibly figure out what you want to do? Or expect satisfaction in your life?

Who am I? If you're not thrilled with your answer, then this book is for you. It will help you to uncover your core skills, interests, and values, and to articulate them in your own unique way.

Where Have I Gone Right? Is a guidebook and workbook to finding your own personal "right mountain." It offers practical tools, advice, and exercises that you can use to define and achieve success on your own terms. The compelling story of Jim Hayhurst’s Everest climb, the anecdotes of the author and others about their personal career planning and job search, and the exercises included throughout the book, together make for a simple, but practical and memorable approach.

Who are you? Where Have I Gone Right? Will help you to figure out how to:

  • Know who you are before you decide what you are going to do
  • Chart your own path to personal success
  • Be more of who you are
  • Make decisions without regrets
  • Squeeze more satisfaction out of life¾ at work, at home, at play
