Book study highlights

In this week’s lesson, we talk about:

  • The one thing you need to succeed at finding your calling.
  • The difference between professionals and amateurs at any craft.
  • Dealing with setbacks and failures.
  • Finding the intersection of your passion and skills with what the world needs.
  • How failure prepares you for success.
  • Lessons we can learn from Groupon’s initial failure as a company.
  • The two main ways you can respond to failure.
  • Deciding when it’s time to quit.


I hope you’ll join me live next week for The Art of Work book study. We will discuss why our calling leads us to much more than a fulfilling vocation.
