A mindmap-esque summary of the book by the same title, this image succinctly boils down 288 pages of advice about pursuing a professional life based on understanding and honing a craft first, rather than chasing a dream.

I found the distinction between passion-based and craft-based approaches to work usefully characterises what I think is wrong about a lot of advice about careers. A lot of people were raised on stories about following their dreams, which leaves those of us without interesting backstories somewhat directionless.
