Summary of Passion at Work
How to Find Work You Love and Live the Time of Your Life
Life's too short to be bored at work. Discover your passions and bring them to the office.
Lawler Kang is here to help if you're feeling unhappy or unfulfilled in your career. His "Five Ps" self-examination process arises from his philosophy that, since "you don't get nine lives" like the fabled feline, you must live each moment to the fullest. Life is too short to stay in a boring job. You've probably heard these ideas before, but Kang's exercises and checklists may help you to act on them. His style is sincere, but overeager and jargon-ridden, and the peculiar, hard-to-read typeface exacerbates his confusing tendency to trip on his own clichés. getAbstract suggests that people who are feeling inextricably stuck in unsatisfying careers will find it worthwhile to transcend these drawbacks. Kang may be able to start you on a journey to fulfillment and happiness.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why you should pursue work about which you are passionate;
- How to discover your passions; and
- How to use the "Five Ps" ("passion, proficiencies, priorities, plan and prove") to get the most out of life.
