Official Title – All Dreams on Deck: Charting the Course for Your Life and Work

Genre – Non-Fiction

Book Length – ​184 Pages

Reading Time – ​3.2 hours

Style/ Plot – ​You know those books that make you sit down and take stock of your life? Yes! This is such a book.

Jeremy writes with such authority that doesn’t intimidate you but makes you actually stop and think.
He tells stories from lessons he learned in his own life. He was an executive at P&G and PepsiCo ( among other companies).
He talked about his adventures at sea, his adventure in the corporate world and the intentionality that yielded great results.
At the end of each chapter, he has a “chart your course” strategy that requires the reader to pause, think and write whilst referring to certain pages at the back of the book (the chart plotter).

Favourite Quote – ​Without specifics, all these dreams lack “teeth”; they are vague. And because they are vague, they open the door for you to focus on the obstacles, fears, and dreads.”

Recommendation​If you are in a rut and desperately need to figure out a way forward, this book is for you.

I like how it’s not preachy and actually gives tools to the reader as to how to dream, be intentional and resilient.
