A CAREER manual for ‘midlife professionals’ has been launched by a Glasgow-based PR consultant.
David Sawyer describes RESET as “the unconventional early retirement plan for midlife careerists who want to be happy”.
Sawyer (45), who has worked in the public relations industry in Scotland for 20 years, hopes RESET will give midlife professionals “a way out… without jacking in your job, leaving your partner, having a midlife crisis, uprooting your existence? With no more effort than you now spend tending your social media flock, superglued to a screen”.
Sawyer has spent the last ten months working on the 373-page title, which has already received acclaim.
Says UK finance blogger, Monevator: “Hidden in plain sight within the 300 or so pages of RESET is an elegant synthesis of the latest thinking in financial independence, lifestyle design, and age-old philosophical wisdom – cunningly disguised as a breezy pep talk from your witty mate down the pub. In a world that’s forever racing past us on a screen, it’s a reminder of the potentially life-changing power of a book.”
Adds London Marathon winner and Olympic medallist, Charlie Spedding: “Reading this book will guide you in the pursuit of change but it will not make change occur. You have to do that.”
Adds Profesor Jason Leitch, national clinical director, healthcare quality & improvement, Scottish Government: “Tempted to throw in the towel and run away? Tempted by the greener grass on the other side? Well… be tempted no more… this book will actually let you ‘reset’. It’s a fun, compelling and, dare I say, tempting prescription to a different approach to life, work and play. What Matters To You is a global movement in healthcare aimed at improving experience of patients and families; this book makes you ask this question of yourself and then encourages you to do something about it. Tempted? I am…”
For Sawyer’s part, he says RESET will provide:
* An idea of what you were put on this earth to do;
* Increased happiness, purpose and meaning;
* A practical plan to future-proof your career;
* A way to declutter your life, so you’re able to see and think clearly again;
* A fully-costed route to financial independence (you can call it early retirement if you like);
* A system to manage your finances; and
* An investing plan that will knock your socks off and explain how you can ‘get rich slowly’.
He said: “It’s a page-turner (part story, part practical guide), which draws on the experiences and research of hundreds of academics, philosophers, Nobel Prize-winners, actors, Olympic athletes, self-help authors, investors and personal finance experts.
“If you read RESET and carry out its recommendations, within a year, you will have transformed your future. It’s never too late. Carpe diem. You are the master of your fate: you (and no-one else) are the captain of your soul.”
