Summary

Have you ever wondered, "What the hell should I do with my life?"

If you're like most people, your twenties have been messy as hell. After working one too many jobs you couldn't care less about, maybe you've wondered if there's something bigger out there for you - some larger purpose.

This is it?

Milk the Pigeon is about the three existential questions we often struggle with when we feel lost in life.

"What should I do with my life?"

"How do I find work I love?"

"How do I create an awesome, meaningful life?"

Based on a combination of stories and success habits for anyone in their twenties, Milk the Pigeon is a brutally honest look at the reality of going after your dreams.

Inside Milk the Pigeon, you'll learn:

  • The biggest life mistakes people make in their twenties (and how to figure out what to do)
  • The VIP back door theory: how the best jobs are found (and filled)
  • The "Drunken Staircase" life roadmap: how to take action when you have no clue what direction to go in (and aren't sure what work you enjoy)
  • The Bruce Lee Rockstar theory of goal achievement - why "smart" goals don't always work to be more successful in business and life
  • The messy process of finding your passion (and why "strengths tests" don't work)
  • How to go from confusion to clarity when you have too many ideas about careers, jobs, interests, passions, and hobbies

If you're looking for a roadmap to surviving (and thriving) in your twenties (or thirties), if you want direction in life, and if you're struggling to figure out how to create a great life - Milk the Pigeon is a brutally honest look at the reality of going after your dreams.

Inspired

I am 31 an let me tell you, this book has left me inspired. If you are looking for some direction this is most certainly a great book to read! You won't be sorry you did! Alex clearly illustrates how the craftsmans mentality leads to meaningful and fulfilling work, which at the end of the day, leads to your success!

One of the best book read this year!

I have been following Alex for a couple of months, however I never bought anything from him (any YouTubers if that's the case), however, he was different, listening his past stories, reminded me on how I am feeling now.
I took a leap of faith, I bought his book.
As Alex said, I followed my intuition, and it revealed a good choice.
I can't thank you enough Alex for sharing those invaluable lessons, thank you for telling me what I already knew, but the whole world was suppressing my dreams to be more "realistic".
Be your own hero, you're already the chosen one.
Thank you for this book.

Wow... it was really good!

I mean... really the book is awesome. And I was surprised by how awesome it is. Truth be told it is not people in their 20s who should read it but every single one, especially those who want to start listening again to their intuition, choosing courage and acting in coherence with their inner life path.
Again, the book was reaaally good :))) surprisingly good!! :)

Life changing

I found this book useful and very helpful. It was and is a book to help me get over the struggle that has been clouding my life for what feels like eternity. I am a working in progress to get me where I need to be but hearing and reading his story has inspired me to push through and it give up. The book is broken down and simplified to the best way possible and helps you to understand the obstacle that you mentally and or physically face by overcoming them and living your best life. This book is a keeper.

Helpful, Beneficial, Relatable and Honest

I really enjoyed this book even though I’m in my late 20’s this book gives beneficial advice for anyone not just individuals in their 20’s. This book gives you relatable advice with real life examples and personal experiences from the author. I’ve purchased all his books and I never get tired of them. I can re-listen to them and always feel with a sense accomplishment and insight. He also had a YouTube channel and gives advice there as well. I recommend this book to anyone!

Game changer

*rolls up sleeves, and starts new life
In all seriousness this book motivated me to find a new job in a foreign country, and to chase my dreams, no matter what anybody says.
