Art of Work by Jeff Goins
I have followed Jeff Goins for some time and am currently going through a mini course of his on writing. I find his passion and easy-to-follow communication style something that challenges me to be a better communicator and writer.
This book is a bit different than the rest of his books in that he focuses more on finding what someone is meant to do rather than instructing on how to do it.
I found that this book was very easy to follow and that he delivered on his goal: helping the reader discover what they were meant to do.
One area that stuck out was legacy. Recognizing that it is not enough to be passionate about something but to be so passionate that you think about those who come behind and how to benefit their lives.
Many people have the goal to be in it for themselves. Goins challenges that idea and shows that people who live their calling are those who think of others instead of being selfish.
I would recommend this book to those who are getting ready to graduate high school and/or college. Many people wander through life trying to find their calling. Goins is a great guide to help those in need.
