So Good They Can’t Ignore You by Cal Newport crossed my desk highly recommended by Early to Rise readers and many of today’s popular authors, including Seth Godin, Daniel Pink, & Reid Hoffman, founder of Linked In.

He outlines 3 traits that make you love your work:

• Creativity

• Impact

• Control

To achieve these traits, you must first develop valuable skills that earn you career capital. It is only when you have career capital that you can take control of your life.


“Turn your focus toward getting so good they can’t ignore you... Regardless of what you do for a living, approach your work like a true performer.” 

“If you want a great job, you need to build up valuable skills – which I call career capital – to offer in return.”

“Adopt the craftsmen mindset first and then the passion follows.”

“It is a lifetime accumulation of deliberate practice that again and again ends up explaining excellence.”
