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.

More than one way- Useful

I found this book to be very helpful, I tend to be at a job for about a year and then I get discouraged by something or someone. I start to look around for some other job, I mean there must be something better out there right? I find a job that promises better pay, better benefits, whatever.
A year later, I'm out looking again.
This book asks great questions about what you like to do, and in different ways than the typical-
"What would you do if you didn't have to go to work?"
kind of questions. So there I was, at my workstation, trying to figure out what i wanted to do with my life. and i looked back on my little scrap of paper and realized-
I am DOING work that I love.
Now, it might not be this job but Mr. Miller makes a great point in separating job, career, and vocation.
He gives great information on how to decide what you enjoy doing, and then how to find a way to
DO IT.
Whether it is to start your own business, start several "side jobs", or how to land the job at the company that you really want to work for.
