Just start - book on the test-and-learn approach to career development

There is a new book on career development: Just Start: Take Action, Embrace Uncertainty, Create the Future. In the book it is argued that career planning often does not work in our unpredictable world. An alternative to career planning is presented which can be summarized as follows:
  1. Determine your desire 
  2. Take a step toward it 
  3. Incorporate what you learn from taking that step 
  4. Take another step 
  5. Learn from that one 
  6. Repeat until you have a job, your own business, or have achieved your goal
Does that somehow sound familiar? If not, have a look here, here, here, here, and here
