Description

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!

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.

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.

Music is annoying.

Difficult to hear the author at the beginning and end of each chapter because the music is so loud.

Excellent content

Excellent content. In fact it was life changing for me! I'm excited for the next step after being depressed for so long knowing that I'm not being the person that I need to be for God. I'm jacked! I will definitely buy the hard copy of this book and more resources the author has to offer. I was disappointed with the quality narration. There were parts that sounded like the narrator was sucking on a candy and that was distracting. I expect better on audible. Fortunately the content quality more than made up for it.

Helpful but dated

Positive and encouraging Dan gives advice on changing your work to fit your life. The stories & statistics are a little dated, though, and the audio version needs updating.

Good listen

The narrator was clearly eating hard candy of cough drops during the whole excerpt... other than that minor issues it was a great book

Great story, poor performance

The narrative of this book gives great insights; however, The delivery by this narrator leaves me feeling like this was done by an inexperienced team. The choice of music at the end and beginning of each chapter often runs over the last/first couple worlds, and you can hear the narrator licking his lips and inhaling

Excellent but

He kept smacking his lips and I found that very distracting. Will return the audio book and get the physical book.

Wouldn't it be GREAT

Title is catchy, Wouldn't it be GREAT if we could all just do THE WORK WE LOVE? Some good points and overall a good takeaway... read time is a good length (not long, not short) with usable content throughout.

good if you need a confidence boost

Disclaimer: I didn't finish it. I stopped short at the 9th chapter.(from 13)
I was expecting some advice on the idea of coming to terms with yourself about not becoming the president of the country and starting to enjoy everyday work as part of life, not as a dreadful event that occupies half of a day.
It is not that. It is more a how-to-market-yourself in this environment and day book. And that's why I stopped. I believe that if you aren't satisfied with your life, changing your outside choices(job/family/clothes/hair) doesn't always help. You might get the best job in the world, but it can still not offer you the satisfaction you are craving.
It has common sense advice. And I guess it is good if you are between jobs and you feel down about your abilities.
Didn't enjoy the music some chapters end with.
Oh, and don't expect a 40 days programme.(at least it didn't have any until the 9th chapter) It just offers opinions and general advice about how to find a job. And then another job. And so on. Also sound advice of not waiting for jobs just because you applied for some, but to actively search and ask for feedback. How to write a resume. How to be a hustler.(in a good way)
What I liked: the idea of thinking if you have a job, a career or a vocation. Because money is not always the main incentive.

I should have paid better attention

I could not listen to even ten minutes of this book. I should have taken that "godgiven" in the description more seriously, or googled the publisher - this book begun dripping out Christianity and religion so heavily right from the start, I just found it annoying and distracting. I hope I can exchange this - as far as I know, Audible has a good policy for that. I just never exchanged the other dissatisfying book I bought because I had actually listened to it and I believe in paying for what I use. This, however, will remain mostly unused. I wanted career-advice, not a sermon. As I said, this is partially my fault - there were clues, after all.
