Book Review: The Art of Work by Jeff Goins


From the Book Description

The path to your life’s work is difficult and risky, even scary, which is why few finish the journey. This is a book about discovering your life’s work, that treasure of immeasurable worth we all long for. It’s about the task you were born to do.

As Jeff Goins explains, the search begins with passion but does not end there. Only when our interests connect with the needs of the world do we begin living for a larger purpose. Those who experience this intersection experience something exceptional and enviable. Though it is rare, such a life is attainable by anyone brave enough to try.

Through personal experience, compelling case studies, and current research on the mysteries of motivation and talent, Jeff shows readers how to find their vocation and what to expect along the way.

My Comments

I have been following Jeff Goins’ blog for a while now, so I was thrilled to have the chance to read and review his latest book, The Art of Work. Jeff Goins did not disappoint!

Goins’ writing is engaging, and insightful. The many personal stories sprinkled throughout the book (Goins’ and others) are inspiring and touching. At the same time, the book is challenging and encouraging. If you are struggling with finding your purpose in life, this book will guide your way in finding it.

And, if you already know your calling, read this book anyway. You will not be sorry. You will still find nuggets of wisdom, and inspiration, and your passion for your particular mission in life will be reignited in a big way.

I highly recommend that you get your hands on a copy of The Art of Work as soon as possible. 🙂 I give it five (5) stars.
