Whistle While You Work - Richard J Leider. Heeding one’s life’s calling is a lifelong process

Whistle While You Work - Richard J Leider. Six years ago, we embarked on a life-changing adventure. Heeding one’s life’s calling is a lifelong process. Our ongoing dialogue about calling has enriched our lives immeasurably and promises to keep doing so. We welcome you to participate in this conversation yourself and to experience the joy and fulfillment that follows from heeding your life’s calling.

The authors combine a thoughtful and practical discussion about calling with examples showing how to apply these ideas to one's life.

Everyone wants to live a life that enables them to make the most of their unique gifts, interests, and passions-to find .

What do I want to be when I grow up" is a question many of us are asking, at an age when one would think the question had been long answered. Like all of Dick Leider's books, this one is a very pleasant and calming read, filled with interesting stories and sound advice.

Everyone has a calling with a unique purpose to fulfill in the world. Heeding it is about deliberately choosing a way of life and work consistent with individual gifts, passions, and values. Through powerful stories and a guided exploration of 52 possible callings, Whistle While You Work helps readers discover how to make a living doing what they were born to do. The authors provide a framework for embracing a very abstract subject in a systematic, practical, and fun way. And their Calling Cards ""TM"" help readers develop answers to profound life questions as they learn to ""listen with the third ear"" to cultivate a mode of searching that isn't limited to the merely tangible.
received on time and as described . . . the recipient was very interested to start reading!
Good book.
I have the kindle version and the complete list of calling cards is completely missing. This book is not useful without this list!
Opens your eyes to other opportunities. Makes you think outside the box and allows you to open your mind to your strengths.
Confucius once wrote: "Find a job you love, and you will never have to work another day in your life." This book is the first step towards making these words ring true in your life. It's a must read for anyone searching to find such a job to enhance their life.
I always read books even if they're not that great, but this was so repetitive and used so many examples that illustrated so little that I got so bored and stopped. I didn't learn much of anything from the book; I was hoping to learn to get the most out a job and, in a way, "whistle while I work." But the 1st half I read just repeated information about how an inner desire will always call you to something greater (i.e., another job) until you respond. I hope most people already know that.
Books like this do everything in their power to get your drive going. And every time I read one (which isn't often), I do feel good about myself. But in the end, I'm back on Earth a few days later. OK, I am sounding pathetic, but the truth is, there isn't a whole lot of practical advice here, just motivational anecdotes. To be frank, there is nothing wrong with that. It just needs more to distinguish itself.
It starts out promising with the part about choosing the characteristics you most want in a job. However, it goes downhill with the straight out of "Touch By an Angel" cabbie stories that start every chapter. What I really did like about this book is that it makes you reevaluate the situation you are currently in to make the most of it. It doesn't preach dropping everything and chasing after your dream because not all of us are in a position to do so. Another thing I liked is that it keeps the message short (under 200 pages). There is no need for a book like this to be 300+ pages. All in all, it's a good starter book for those looking to make a career change.
A must read in making choices along your career journey to find your calling. Based on John Holland's Theory, this is a very useful book to help laypersons' to apply the Theory in a most practical and meaningful way to find their calling. Most importantly, the authors share not only their personal experiences but also include the experiences of a number of individuals. In career planning and strategizing, this is very helpful. It is having others share their experiences and this gives a better grasp of the issues so that career choices can be made wisely. This ultimately will lead you to what you are destined to do. A useful complementary reading to the perrenial favourite, What Colour Is Your Parachute. In fact, Richard Bolles' comment about the book is, "I love it"! Need I say more for endorsements?
