Publisher's Summary

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, entrepreneurs, "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 God-given 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!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I was looking forward to listening to this audio book. I'm a Dave Ramsey fan, but quite honestly I have never really enjoyed religion thrown in my face. I am a faithful person, but that is a personal thing. This book starts out with the premise of helping you find your way to the job you love, but I cannot sit through someone quoting scripture repeatedly and bible passages. I was looking for a self help book, not a lesson in the Bible. These topics should be mutually exclusive. This book is fine if you don't mind a lot of religious themes.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 48 Days to the Work You Love?

Less religion, more substance.

Decent, Basic Information

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listened to the entire book. I thought about moving on and not finishing the book, but I wanted to give it a fair listen. It's okay material. Nothing earth shattering. TONS of lists...almost too many and there is no way to remember all of the lists he presents. I am not in the place that most of this book focuses on, but there were some universal principles that I was able to get out of it and apply. If you're looking for a new job, this book is for you. If you're like me, and already love the work you do, this may disappoint you.


What does Dan Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration was rather bland.


Was 48 Days to the Work You Love worth the listening time?

I don't feel like my time was wasted, but I won't listen to it again.
