    Got this book through the first read GR giveaways on here. Have to admit it was rather a fluke in winning this particular book as I had just entered the giveaway on a whim and then won it the next day. Long story short I finished it today and have to admit that I felt inspired reading this. As I've been going through some major work dissatisfaction. But from a few tips and thought provoking questions, I think I can tackle my career in a better way from here on out. I'm kind of looking forward to Got this book through the first read GR giveaways on here.

    Highly recommend for anyone who asks "what is my passion?" "where do I begin to uncover the type of work that suits me?" I would put this as the #2 book I've read as relating to work and careers. While it isn't actionable, it will help with the vision and soul searching process. Because of that, I'd say it is a MUST READ for anyone struggling with this area of their lives. In that case, I'd recommend reading/listening to this book first, then going through the book "48 Days to the Work You Love" Highly recommend for anyone who asks "what is my passion?"

    Favorite quote: "Distant ancestors many years in the future". Author used this to describe the impact something would have on the descendants of the focus of the book (you the reader). It does not quite mean what I think he meant to say. Your ancestors are in the past. Your descendants are in the future. Overall the book is poor. More clap-trap about needing to be "spiritual" (ie. Christian) to have a good, meaningful live. Favorite quote: "Distant ancestors many years in the future".

    I’ve read a few books on figuring out your “calling” recently, including a couple by the author of this book. While most of these books sound very similar, they differ in level of spiritual discussion and in the specific to-dos to find that elusive calling. This one had a Christian “work is good” message, but it wasn’t overwhelming. This book also featured an exercise to find your calling using “calling cards”. I found this a nice way to organize thinking. I went through this, and found it somew I’ve read a few books on figuring out your “calling” recently, including a couple by the author of this book.

Not bad for what it is.

    For anyone who is in a job that's not right for them or would like to find more meaning in their current job, this book is for them. I recommended it twice this week! I went through this reset in my late 20's and created a career that fulfils me every day but this book conceptualises it in a way that I was never able to when coaching others to do the same.

    This was a good book to remind one of the importance of perspective. It was repetitive, to drive home the important aspects, but an easy read. Relevant examples and stories were included which helped explain terms or how to accomplish a particular activity.

    Good points with a few good ideas to implement. They could have gone deeper to expand the position more.

    This book is full of the usual wit and wisdom about listening to your inner voice and finding the path that fits your own personal ethics. What's different is a system of using what the author names "calling cards" to find an occupation that appeals to you. The premise of the book is that whatever your age, it's not too late to find your calling. However, it's a bit of an promo for the AARP site, lifereimagined.org.

    I gave this a quick read....some sound statements and advice. An interesting quote: The Main purpose of life is: 1) to have a job in whose purpose you can believe; 2) to have friends whose immediate purposes you can trust; 3) to have some spot on earth which you can return to as home; and 4) to be at the same time a citizen of the world. - James Michener

    I received this book through the Goodreads Giveaways program. This is a great book on understanding the concepts of vocation and calling. It allowed me to question whether my life's direction is in alignment with my sense of purpose, values, and mission. The calling cards activity was also very useful and correlated with other similar activities I have previously completed. I received this book through the Goodreads Giveaways program.

    Helped me reframe and better understand the concept of "calling." I found the exercises within the book useful, and I've even turned some folks to this as a resource. Def recommend to anyone having any form of an existential crisis/questioning :) Helped me reframe and better understand the concept of "calling."

    I was very interested in this book but I didn't really see much new in it. 30 years ago my son was in a survey of boys that used the calling card idea . I actually got really bored with it about half way through.

    I found it somewhat disappointing. Although I found it useful and somewhat inspiring I don't believe it delivers what it advertises. I had purchased a copy for 2 other people before I read it and I am hoping they get more out of it than I did. I found it somewhat disappointing.

    I really just devoured this book. I took to it because I am searching for myself. This book is motivating and makes you understand how important your life is and how important it is to know your calling.

    Meh. A lot of cliques, nothing I could really sink my teeth into. Although it might have been a little more helpful if I wasn't kinda bored with it; I couldn't focus. Meh.
