Reviews - What do customers think about The Passion Plan?

Will help you find your own personal passion  Feb 28, 2008
Heard THE PASSION PLAN, written and ready by Richard Chang . . . it
is a thought-provoking book about how to find your own special
passion and then when you have, to be able to follow it
to personal success.

I was inspired by many of personal stories that were included . . . in
addition, I liked the easy-to-follow recipe involving seven simple
steps that could be used to help you discover things you really
care about, decide where you want them to take you and then
what you need to do to develop a plan to get you there.

Nothing here was earth-shattering, per se . . . and you, like me,
might have heard much of it before . . . yet that said, I liked
hearing such tidbits as the following:

* As one passion evolves, you may discover others.

* If you're never discovered your passions, you need to keep yourself
open to opportunities to discover them.

* We need to make decisions based on the passions in our heart.

* Sometimes, others can detect passions from our heart before
we do. For example, if they say something like, "He's so happy when
he is [doing something]."

* You should not hesitate to let your passion show.

* Your enthusiasm will only matter if it is authentic.

Chang's narration was heartfelt . . . however, had he chosen to
use a professional narrator (or actor), it could have made listening
to his book even more enjoyable.
 
DISAPPOINTING  May 9, 2007
If you have read any of my other reviews, you probably noticed a lot of 3 to 5 stars. That is because I usually do a lot of research to finD only the best books, DVDs or CDs. If you already know your passion, than this might be good for you. However, I was under the impression this would help me find my passion. It doesn't. If you want to find your passion, you might consider "The Passion Test, by the Attwood's or I think you will enjoy Barbara Scher to help you find your passion.

 
A Solid Effort!  Jun 1, 2001
Richard Y. Chang describes how to find your passion - what really excites you - and use that to guide your life. He emphasizes looking to your heart to discover what your passion is and then using your head to stay in touch with reality. The book presents some nice summaries and charts that highlight key concepts. But otherwise, much of this is well-trod ground that has been covered by many other writers in the self-improvement genre, in books such as Wishcraft or with titles like "love what you do." Chang adds enlivening personal touches and examples, but otherwise, much of the book seems familiar, and even repetitious. We [...] recommend this book to the unfulfilled employee or uncertain entrepreneur, the person still searching for a passion.
 
More silliness  Jan 28, 2001
An awful lot of people are making an awful lot of money dishing out what amounts to either common sense or drivel. Here the author requires almost 300 pages to state what could have been said in 5 to 10. If this is an example of what passes for substantive executive training than heaven help us. Borrow the book from a library if you must, skim a couple of the pages and you'll have all of it. Don't waste your money.
 
Direction at a crossroad  Sep 6, 2000
We all look for direction at some point in our life. But direction is never as valuable as when you are standing at a crossroad. Similarly with this book, its content will be useful to just about anyone, at any time. But if you are standing at a crossroad (just laid-off, moved to a new location, etc.) and have an opportunity to change direction, this book is definitely for you. The Plan is simple to understand and will work. Unless you want to, no major changes will be necessary. However, be prepared to be honest with yourself; be prepared to realize that you may not know (yet) what really excites you; but best of all, be prepared to find your way to happiness.
