Publisher Comments:

In 2009, the U.S. unemployment rate approached ten percent. Today, when new work is found, it may not be traditional. Studies estimate half of the American workforce will soon consist of freelancers, consultants, independent contractors, entreprenuers, "electronic immigrants," and so forth. Are you ready for the new normal?

Dan Miller has seen it coming for years. But his thriving vocational best seller, 48 Days to the Work You Love, is not so much about finding a new job as it is learning about who we are really called to be in relation to our vocation-whatever shape that career may take in these changing times. According to the author, failing to make that fundamental discovery of calling is why so many people find themselves in jobs they hate. But now, thousands upon thousands are finding the work they love, thanks to practical advice from this leading career counselor.

Conversational and creative, Miller helps the reader understand one's Godgiven skills and abilities, personality traits, values, dreams, and passions. Doing so helps us recognize clear patterns that will point toward successful decisions along the career path. Step by step, this updated edition of 48 Days to the Work You Love reveals the process for creating a Life Plan and translating that plan into meaningful and fulfilling daily work. Let the countdown begin!

Synopsis:

Practical instructions from leading vocational thinker Dan Miller on how to approach work as more than just a paycheck, but as part of the calling God has placed on each life.

Miller does an extensive work here, that neatly arranges how to find more satisfying vocations to do instead of just keeping a j-o-b...for as long as a person can stand it.

Let's face it most of hate to hear that someone else really likes there work. If that includes you, fellow bibliophile, then this book has to be located and located fast.

But I must say that I do not totally agreeing with every suggestion, but the need to self examine is very, very helpful to those, (many, many of us, me included), struggling with poor work decisions, endless job let-downs and not seeing any vocation opportunities to get the needed change.
