The Renaissance Soul By Margaret Lobenstine

by Shannon Houde

Sub-titled as ‘life design for people with too many passions to pick just one’, Lobenstine’s book picks up where Barbara Sher’s ‘Refuse to Choose’ left off. ‘Renaissance Soul’ offers support and practical life advice on how to balance an infinite variety of interests with a finite amount of time and energy, and – crucially for our purposes – how to design a career that pays you to pursue your passions.

Rather than taking a ‘day job’ that pays the bills and squeezing your dreams and interests into the hours around it, Lobenstine proposes choosing a job that aligns with your personal focus and provides opportunities to earn an income, conserve or create energy, use your time to pursue your interests, train, have access to equipment, and network. I couldn’t agree more – the ‘Aim Your Compass‘ career planning tool I use with my career coaching clients was developed with this same outcome in mind.

All too often, people with ‘renaissance souls’ see their ideas and their incomes as mutually exclusive entities – and as I tell so many of my clients, it’s simply not the case! Life is so much more satisfying when we integrate the two. In this book, Lobenstine offers some inspiring thoughts and tips on doing just that.
