By: Dan Miller
I’ve been on a bit of a tear on non-fiction books recently. In fact, I’ve been dabbling with the idea of penning one myself. Unlike a fiction novel though, there’s a bit of research involved and such, so don’t expect to hear too much about that anytime soon.
I first read a book by Dan Miller called 48 Days to the Work you Love. It’s a great book, and since I liked it so much, I bought No More Mondays to read. The entire point of this book is give you the basis to think beyond the Job you have and look more for the job that you were purposed to do. Of course, like most books of this style, there’s a heavy leaning towards entrepreneurship and small business. And, of course, I can’t argue that at all, in fact I agree. But, he doesn’t just talk about quitting your job and starting a business. He recognizes that not everyone will be well suited to running their own business.
Within the structure of the book, Miller also takes on reasons that you are feeling unfulfilled with the path you are on. Not only within your working life, but also within your personal life. Having tackled such a topic, he also goes through several exercises to help you start in a direction that will leave you feeling more fulfilled and, overall, happier.
Millers writing is easy to read and doesn’t get too complicated at any point. That’s good. One thing that I found was that I thought it wandered in places. Nothing too horrible, and most probably wouldn’t notice it.
Overall, if you’re looking to learn something, or looking to improve your life, I suggest you pick up this book. It’s well worth the read, even if you aren’t planning on finding a new job anytime soon. 😉
