A job is never just a job. It is always connected to a deep and invisible process of finding meaning in life through work.
The majority of us will spend longer each day in our respective workplace than we will at home. We all want to enjoy our professional lives, but many people feel dissatisfied at work and are asking Why am I doing what I'm doing?'.

He explores the often difficult obstacles, road blocks and hardships of our own making that we go through on our way to discovering our deeper purpose. He also shares the struggles of great thinkers and artists who grappled with their own uncertainty before finding their calling, highlighting the timelessness of every individual s quest to find happiness in their career. For anyone who is questioning the professional path they have chosen, this poignant and practical meditation will help them discover the answers.
Forget about the color of your parachute, here is a book that teaches you how to fly. Through ancient parable, contemporary therapy, personal vignette, and, above all, an uncommon sapience, Moore deftly guides through life s greatest quandary: Why have I been created?
