Book Review - The Art of Work by Jeff Goins

Life happens, but along the way we can find purpose out of the connections we make and the experiences we have on the journey. This is the essential message of  The Art of Work by Jeff GoinsSimilar to the concept of the hero’s journey in literature, Goins directs the reader to see the possibility of open doors, accidental apprenticeships, and opportunities that may change the direction of your life.

Goins’ goal is to instill in anyone willing to take the chance, a desire to find their life’s calling. To quote from his back cover copy: “A calling is not some special opportunity reserved for an elite class of people. Meaningful work is available to anyone who dares to find it. The path before you is a perilous one, full of difficulty and challenges, but it leads to a legacy the world will not soon forget.” 

This book seeks to motivate you to find and better understand your passion, something that may not be immediately obvious, but with time and guidance can be discovered. He encourages you to learn and grow from your failures and other life experiences. The Art of Work will challenge you to do more than just go through the motions of a job by helping you identify your calling and gain a fresh view of your life. The journey is as individual as each person and that’s what makes it exciting!

Easy to read and inspiring from start to finish, Lilybits and I give The Art of Work four paws up!
