Book Review: To Build The Life You Want, Create The Work You Love, by Marsha Sinetar

Some time ago, I read Marsha Sinetar's To Build The Life You Want, Create The Work You Love. The book was a big help to me. I commend it to you, if you are interested in making your work more personally meaningful.

Sinetar talks about "right livelihood" or "vocation" in this wonderful book. These terms represent holistic definitions of work, from both East and West, respectively. The book is for all who want to create their best vocational options and who may not know how to make the transition into work they prefer. It's also for a growing number of displaced workers and retirees who wish to use security to make their mark and contribution in the world.

Our world is swiftly altering its geopolitical and economic boundaries. Everything seems in flux. Social values -- how we work and live -- fluctuate along with the value of the yen, the dollar, and the deutsche mark. Our notions of what it means to love, to marry, to be a parent, an employee, and to grow old are being debated and reexamined. Superfluidity now affects each of our lives. This is a book that can help you remain centered about your work during times of great change and turmoil.
