Why get into one's Goldilocks Zone?

There are huge gaps between what people want to do versus what they end up doing. After spending a lot of time and energy, through trial and error, they tend to move to what they want to do. The earlier you get into your ‘Goldilocks Zone’ the better. When you operate in your Goldilocks Zone you will be actively creating the perfect combination of conditions to make the best of your life.

Why did I write this book?

  • For the last few years I’ve been thinking about writing on this topic, which is very close to my heart. The Covid and work from home phase possibly created the right conditions for me to write the book.
  • I stumbled on this path of self-discovery rather late in life, in fact, my early forties. I would like to help my fellow beings go through this process earlier in their lives so that they may benefit from leveraging the outcomes for the larger part. The earlier one starts on this journey knowing what they would like it to be, the more fulfilling that journey will be.
  • We potentially limit making the best of our life by not discovering our purpose, and not necessarily because of any limitation related to our abilities, capabilities, skills and competencies. Life becomes more focused, motivating and meaningful if we have identified the purpose.

Who is this book for?

  • For someone who has completed their basic education and taken up a job / work assignment for a few years (have an idea of what they like and what they do not).
  • For someone who feels restless and is missing something in their life.
  • Someone who is not sure if they are on the right career path.
  • Someone trying to understand themselves better by pursuing more meaning and fulfilment in life.

How does this book help you?

  • What is my true calling?
  • What am I passionate about?
  • How do I do what I want to do?
  • What is the purpose of my life?
  • How do I find satisfaction in my life?

Are these questions keeping you awake at night? All these questions are interwoven. To address and resolve these questions I believe you should operate in your ‘Goldilocks Zone’. This book also provides tools to help you change what you are doing, change how you do it and more importantly, why are you doing it – helping you make the best of your life in 5 steps.

This book helps in not only exploring the purpose of one’s life but also taking the next step of identifying a strategy to fulfil that purpose. This journey is about moving from just making a living to making the best of life, not just having happy moments but instead, experiencing sustained satisfaction.
