Wisdom Meets Passion: When Generations Collide and Collaborate | [Dan Miller, Jared Angaza]

Wisdom Meets Passion: When Generations Collide and Collaborate

Wisdom without passion is a Ferrari with no gas in the tank. Passion without wisdom is a tricked-out 57 Chevy with no steering wheel. Baby Boomers have relied on wisdom to pave the way to success. Education, knowledge, investing strategies, 401(k)s, real estate leverage, and carefully contrived career paths were expected to lead to success in the golden years. Seeing the overall failure of that formulaic approach to life, younger generations today have relied on passion as the guiding principle for their version of success.

Publisher's Summary

Wisdom without passion is a Ferrari with no gas in the tank. Passion without wisdom is a tricked-out 57 Chevy with no steering wheel. Baby Boomers have relied on wisdom to pave the way to success. Education, knowledge, investing strategies, 401(k)s, real estate leverage, and carefully contrived career paths were expected to lead to success in the golden years. Seeing the overall failure of that formulaic approach to life, younger generations today have relied on passion as the guiding principle for their version of success.

Yet both are necessary. Regardless of age, those using only wisdom to achieve their goals are likely to end up disappointed and unfulfilled, feeling as though they have been chasing empty rainbows. Those trusting passion alone may lose the power of wisdom and end up underachieving, falling short of their potential, and unable to attain their worthy goals. In Wisdom Meets Passion, best-selling author Dan Miller and his entrepreneurial son Jared Angaza show how to blend the two, equipping readers to accomplish their greatest goals, experience the thrill of fulfilling relationships, create meaningful work, and complete their purpose and calling here on earth no matter which age group they represent.

    "A book that Motivates"
    What made the experience of listening to Wisdom Meets Passion the most enjoyable?

    The Authors of this book really engage in their experiences to write this book. I loved the fact that they speak about how different the two of them are and then use examples of how they found ways to connect. Also, being a person that is trying to find that dream job, and integrate my passion through my profession. I found the book very motivating to actively and aggressively begin the process of working for myself, and using my best qualities in my work.


    What other book might you compare Wisdom Meets Passion to and why?

    I wouldn't compare, but would suggest Jon Acuff's "Quitter" it is a book in a similar line of pursuing work that magnifies your best qualities through your active vocation.


    What does Dan Miller and Jared Angaza bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The two authors bring emotion to the story that allows you to visualize, and really enjoy their experience that they had.


    Any additional comments?

    Its a good read or Listen. You won't be disappointed.

    Have you listened to any of Dan Miller and Jared Angaza ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All of Dan's works are terrific and thought provoking.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone would find help and encouragement from Dan's books as well as his 48Days podcast.
