Publisher's Summary

Jeff Goins, a brilliant new voice counting Seth Godin and Jon Acuff among his fans, explains how to abandon the status quo and live a life that matters with true passion and purpose.
The path to your life's work is difficult and risky, even scary, which is why few finish the journey. This is a book about discovering your life's work, that treasure of immeasurable worth we all long for. It's about the task you were born to do.
As Jeff Goins explains, the search begins with passion but does not end there. Only when our interests connect with the needs of the world do we begin living for a larger purpose. Those who experience this intersection experience something exceptional and enviable. Though it is rare, such a life is attainable by anyone brave enough to try.
Through personal experience, compelling case studies, and current research on the mysteries of motivation and talent, Jeff shows listeners how to find their vocations and what to expect along the way.

Honest and engaging. not your standard 'How to'

Author has succeeded in drawing out key insights from inspiring yet realistic stories that are empathetic to those on this mysterious, confounding, often frustrating path to discover one's calling. A refreshing take on this subject matter. thanks

Inspiring!

This is the second audiobook I have listened to by Jeff Goins. The first was "You Are A Writer." Although this sounds overly dramatic, both books have transformed my life. The author's positive encouraging tone and words have served as much needed inspiration to truly live my life. The first book gave me the courage to start writing instead of simply dreaming of writing. This book, "The Art of Work," has taught me a fresh way to view my life in its totality. Previously I thought of my life in a compartmentalized manner. In each separate little box in which I had stuffed my job, my writing hobby, my child-rearing, my chores, etc. I was facing burnout to varying degrees. A lot of it was downright drudgery. Through Jeff Goins' description of living a "portfolio life" I know see each portion as part of a larger vision and purpose. And keeping that newfound sense of purpose has infused meaning into even the most mundane tasks. I can't thank the author enough for giving me an unexpected life transformation! I highly encourage this book to everyone at a praxis in his or her life.

Enlightening

This book gave me clarity on what a calling is and what it's not. The book also inspired me to go after my own calling.
