On Careers

Imagine a job "big enough for the spirit".

Roman Krznaric gave a talk on his book, How to Find Fulfilling Work, as part of the launch of The School of Life’s practical philosophy book series. Krznaric offered five essential ideas for career change, drawing on career advice from Leonardo da Vinci, Aristotle and a woman who gave herself the unusual 30th birthday present of trying out 30 different jobs in one year.

"The 20th Century was about dozens of markets of millions of consumers. The 21st Century is about millions of markets of dozens of consumers" - Joe Kraus, dotcom pioneer

Peter Day argues convincingly that during the past 25 years, the world of manufacture and trade has been turned upside down. We've gone from mass production for mass markets to a world of customised trading for individuals.

This has largely been caused by the internet, which, Day believes, is revolutionising the world in a way that's as profound as that caused by the advent of printing 500 years ago.

As mass-customisation guru Joe Pine, put it, "consumers don't want choice, they just want exactly what they want".
