48 Days…

August 30, 2006

I recently read an incredible book that I think that everyone should check out. It’s called 48 Days to the Work You Love. It’s one of the first books that I have read that really puts a different spin on job hunting – Dan looks at job hunting very much as a sales process, and uses the normal tools of sales people to help get jobs.

It’s funny – I found this after I was already in the interview process for my new job, so I didn’t get a chance to try this out (not that I was looking).

The part of the book that was most powerful was the idea of “finding a calling” rather than finding a job – the question that you can’t escape asking when you read the book: “what is my calling on this planet?”

What am I here to do? What’s my purpose in life? Am I living that purpose each day, or am I spending my time “majoring in minor things”? (to use a Tony Robbins-ism).

These are questions I ask myself each week during my weekly review process to ensure that I’m staying on track.
