Beloved author Barbara Sher is back with her next bestseller: a life-making guide for the over-interested and undecided

With her popular career counseling sessions, motivational speeches, workshops, and television specials, Barbara Sher has become famous for her extraordinary ability to help people define and achieve their life goals. Now she tackles a problem that millions of people face today in a universe of infinite possibilities.

Sher identifies someone she calls The Scanner--someone who frequently has a multiplicity of interests, but finds it hard to create a successful life he or she loves because their passions and abilities are taking them in so many different directions. Sher identifies 7 types of Scanners--ranging from the Serial Specialist (someone who learns all about one subject, only to get bored and need to move on to the next) to Sybil (a person with so many areas of interest, she can't finish a thing).

Contrary to popular wisdom, Sher tells Scanners that theirs is a unique ability, not a liability. She also states that they must do everything they love, not zero in on one pursuit at the expense of all others. With dozens of powerful techniques Sher has developed to free people from goal paralysis, readers will stop thinking of themselves as dabblers or dilettantes, and find innovative ways to live lives of variety, challenge, and joy.

Synopsis:

Don't know what to do with your life? Drawn to so many things that you can't choose just one? New York Times best-selling author Barbara Sher has the answer--do EVERYTHING!

With her popular career counseling sessions, motivational speeches, workshops, and television specials, Barbara Sher has become famous for her extraordinary ability to help people define and achieve their goals. What Sher has discovered is that some individuals simply cannot, and should not, decide on a single path; they are genetically wired to pursue many areas. Sher calls them "Scanners"--people whose unique type of mind does not zero in on a single interest but rather scans the horizon, eager to explore everything they see.

In this groundbreaking book, readers will learn:

• what's behind their "hit and run" obsessions

• when (and how) to finish what they start

• how to do everything they love

• what type of Scanner they are (and which tools they need to do their very best work)

This book has changed my life. And I say that without fear of any contradiction. What amazing tools Barbara Sher has brought to light for those of us who just can't settle for one career, life, place to live, etc. I have started using just the first tool, which she calls the Scanner Daybook. I am using it to record all of the ideas for projects or inventions or careers, or anything else that is of interest to me. In the past I would usually write them on a loose sheet of any kind of paper that was handy, but now they are all in one place and I can find them when I am ready to use them. It is so freeing to not have the guilt about not doing something with it now and then worrying about finding it later if/or when I wanted to pursue it further. The power of just getting all of the information down in one place when the idea first strikes cannot be over estimated. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a way to structure their life so that they never have to choose to not do some thing ever again.
