Self unLimited: The book
Helen Palmer’s book, Self unLimited: A vocational adventure for the 21st century, is full of practical advice and useful exercises to help you become more self-aware of your own career journey. Its origin was Helen’s own workscape journey of over two decades. When faced with various career choices, she began to consider all the factors that made a particular role enticing. Documenting a list of those factors and taking personal responsibility to see that those factors were in play and were fulfilled was a major turning point. She began looking at herself as an organisation-of-one even while employed by someone else.
In reviewing the situations she was in and the choices she made, she realised the journey isn’t always straightforward, and that what she was learning could be helpful to others.

What readers say
I really enjoyed the simple yet powerful way Self unLimited reminded me of the career options I have and how to work through them step by step. I have already passed the book onto a friend about to embark on a career change and recommended it to a client in a similar situation. Thanks Helen for sharing your insights and allowing so many people to work out how to step forward when you feel life’s obligations will always be barriers. Enjoy reading!
