The Money Is the Gravy
Finding the Career That Nourishes You / John ClarkBook - 2003
John Clark -- formerly a discontented lawyer, today a happy writer, speaker, and consultant -- says work and joy should go hand in hand. In this uplifting, inspiring, and often very funny book, he shows you how. Advocating small incremental changes, Clark takes you along the path to happiness, step-by-step. From avoiding the "how I've wasted my life (and it's too late)" trap and the "perfect job" illusion, you can move steadily forward to the life of your dreams...without jeopardizing your ability to pay your bills. Like every human being on Earth, you too have a calling. With laughs and insights courtesy of Dilbert, Doonesbury, and Calvin and Hobbes cartoons, John Clark fires you up to find it. His road map is simple -- look for the "three circles of work": skill that calls on your innate abilities, enjoyment to give you days of constant leisure, and meaning, a why to live for. The perfect guide, Clark has been where you are right now and traveled to where you want to be. John Clark's realistic approach will turn your life around slowly but surely, degree by degree. Using an explorer's mind-set that relishes the journey as much as the destination, it fortifies your courage to run away from angst and regret toward bliss and accomplishment. What about the money? You'll get a refreshing lesson in spotting the difference between Enough and More than Enough. And Clark's two-handed boost over the barriers of fear, disapproval, and family expectations will send you toward your goal of being true to yourself first...and discovering that THE MONEY IS THE GRAVY of a rich and rewarding life.
