The Art of Work, Jeff Goins

The Art of Work: A Proven Path to Discovering What You Were Meant to Do (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2015)

We all have some understanding of what we’re supposed to do with our lives. We may not realize it or perhaps we lost it, but it’s there, waiting to be uncovered. — Jeff Goins

I wish I’d had this book twenty years ago. It would have saved me more than half that time searching for the answer to the question: What am I here for? What am I supposed to do with my life?

The question has plagued generations. Just look at history. Amidst the confusion of the many flourish the marvels of the few. Why do so few people ever discover what could be the most influential breakthrough of their lives, if not the breakthrough—something that could affect not just this life, but generations to come?

At the end of your days, what will be the mark of your success? And really, how do you define success? Is it possible to find the answers before it’s too late?

Fortunately, the answer is Yes. In The Art of Work: A Proven Path to Discovering What You Were Meant to Do, best-selling author Jeff Goins delivers just what the title promises. Through true stories of ordinary men and women choosing extraordinary lives, Goins shows you how they have searched for, found, and are fulfilling their purposes. And within each story, Goins does more than coach you. He walks beside you, sharing actionable wisdom from his own inspiring journey.

Jeff Goins’ perspective is both fresh and relevant for today’s generations. Every page speaks from the heart of an authentic writer who has been there. And you’ll be convinced, not by hypothetical storytelling but through real people, that a path exists for all of us to find what we are meant to do, and who we are meant to be.

Jeff breaks this down into three parts for easy digestion: Preparation, Action, and Completion. The first to wake you up for your breakthrough. The second to discover and commit to your new destination. And the third to spur you on toward mastery and a life fulfilled in legacy. But don’t be fooled. Becoming the person you are called to be will not be easy. And that’s exactly where this book is going to help you.
