Future Proof

Diana Wu David

For too many of us, work has become an inescapable treadmill of personal sacrifice. But having the career we want shouldn’t require us to lose ourselves. We all deserve a humanistic and sustainable job environment–and now we can have it.

In Future Proof, Diana Wu-David tells how her own career-focused existence shifted after the suicide of a friend, prompting her to realize there was a better way to work. Drawing on real-life stories, arguing for being truly present in life, she shows you how you can use innovation in your career and life—including experimentation, collaboration, reinvention, and recalibrating success—to make your career more resilient, relevant, competitive, and enjoyable in an ever-changing global landscape.

You can have a prosperous career packed with meaning, joy, and purpose—and this book is the tool that will help you get off that treadmill and run free.

Press & Praise

Dorie Clark, author of Entrepreneurial You, Reinventing You and Stand out

"Future Proof is a great read for corporate executives looking to reinvent themselves in an ever more entrepreneurial economy."

Henny Sender, Financial Times

"It is both a curse and a blessing of our fraught times that reinvention is no longer an option, but an obligation. Resilience rather than any formal qualification has become the key to both success and satisfaction. For those of us who would welcome a guide, I cannot recommend Future Proof too strongly."

Peter Williams, Citibank, Resolve Foundation, Music for Life International

"Sometimes it takes a tragedy to create the conditions for a new mindset and way of living. A challenge that emerges is to honor the loss of a loved one and to make what happens next bigger and better than what might have been before. Diana has discovered a playbook for how to be resilient from both a personal and professional perspective–the same approach will future proof your life and career."
