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!

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
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.

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.

At last a book on Jobs that doesn't start Steve !
Firstly I do have to start with a word of caution. Dan continually references the bible throughout this book and offers a strong Christian perspective. I would urge the listener not to be put off by this as the principals he discusses are in any event great principals, whatever your religious persuasion or otherwise. For the most part this is fine although once or twice it does border a bit on a sermon (complete with a bit of a dig at Tom Cruise/ Nicole Kidman!) . The book is also largely written from an American perspective. OK, so now the reasons as to why this warrants 5 stars. 1/ Dan reads very well, he has a very soothing, down-to-earth and yet also very passionate voice- he's a joy to listen to. 2/ Not many people have written about this subject and yet it is a very important subject that affects everyone on the globe to some capacity 3/ Dan turned his life around and is open and honest about what happened and what he gained from this experience 4/ there is a lot of sage advice here based on experience.
