Publisher's Summary

"Sweet spot." Golfers understand the term. So do tennis players. Ever swung a baseball bat or paddled a Ping-Pong ball? If so, you know the oh-so-nice feel of the sweet spot. Life in the sweet spot rolls like the downhill side of a downwind bike ride. But you don't have to swing a bat or a club to know this. What engineers give sports equipment, God gave you. A zone, a region, a life precinct in which you were made to dwell. He tailored the curves of your life to fit an empty space in his jigsaw puzzle. And life makes sweet sense when you find your spot.But if you're like 87 percent of workers, you haven't found it. You don't find meaning in your work--or you're one of the 80 percent who don't believe their talents are used. What can you do? You're suffering from the common life, and you desperately need a cure.

Best-selling author Max Lucado has found it. In Cure for the Common Life, he offers practical tools for exploring and identifying your own uniqueness, motivation to put your strengths to work, and the perfect prescription for finding and living in your sweet spot for the rest of your life.

An inspiring look at how to find your purpose

This book could be a career guide for anyone stuck in finding their own purpose. It outlines how to look at your life in light of the gifts and passions God gave you, and encourages you to use those gifts and passions to serve God in all you do. I highly recommend this book for anyone feeling stuck or at a loss as to what to do with their life and career.

something for everyone

I almost returned it during the first two chapters because it seemed like it was going to focus on career choices, something that I cannot change right now. I'm so glad I didn't. The rest of the book was just what I needed. it really breathed new life into my work and my heart. I am listening to it again now and hearing the first few chapters from a different perspective and enjoying them too. This has something for people in every stage of life. I think you'll enjoy it.

If you are a Lucado fan you will want this one

If you know Max Lucado from any of his other books you will want to add this one to your listening list. Through biblical truths and his ability to communicate those truth with his unique brand of storytelling you will learn how to go about finding your calling and Cure for the Common Life.

This one had stories about my home town, though not mentioned explicitly. When you talk about Boll Weevils and peanuts you are talking about Enterprise, Alabama. He also has a story about a student at Union University, where our oldest daughter graduated from. I suspect you might find some stories you can relate to also.

Start listening now!
