A most amazing book–The Art of Work

May 25, 2015 at 2:33 am 2 comments


Today, I just finished reading Jeff Goins‘ newest book, The Art of Work. If you want to learn about how guilds and journeymen started in a trade, read the book. If you want to read about people who found themselves in difficult and challenging places, but who succeeded beyond their expectations—Eric and Garrett Miller, Ginny Phang and others—read this book.

His straight-forward conversational tone is engaging, informative and inviting. It explained so many things for me about how careers can change.

Jeff explores the relationship with apprenticeships, mentors and finding the work you were meant for, even when circumstances change and you need to pivot to some other line of work. How is the work you’ve already done figuring in the work you find yourself doing later?

The Art of Work shows you how to proceed even if you’re not sure where to start. This is a 5-star book and very readable, but don’t read it in one sitting, even if you can. Take time to think about what he writes.

Highly recommended and I’m writing this because I want to tell others about the book.

    Thanks for stopping by, Susan. It’s a book to take your time reading, think on your journey and then pass the book onto someone who may need it. It may be one I share within my family first, but I wanted to let others know.
