Personal finance blog reviews A Life at Work

Justin McHenry reviews A Life at Work for the Zen Personal Finance blog. Unfamiliar with Thomas Moore’s earlier books, he says,
"One of the themes throughout the book that I appreciated was Moore's idea that not every passion is a career, and we shouldn't beat ourselves up about being on the wrong path if our #1 passion isn't our full-time job. We can't all realistically be musicians, or pilots, or authors or working tirelessly to end world hunger or whatever your passion may be. That doesn't mean you can't still pursue those passions and fit them into an overall satisfying life. Sometimes you need an outlook change more than a job change."
McHenry concludes, "... work is where we make our money, and it's where we spend most of our time, so it makes sense to keep thinking about how to make that time rewarding in more than just dollars and cents."

We like that -- it makes sense to think about more than just cents.
