A life at work may include failure and instability

In the post "Life's Work", dated 7 February 2010, The Positivity Project blog reviews Thomas Moore's A Life at Work with favoured quotes and personal insights. The blogger's comments show how one's attitude toward paid employment may fuel accomplishments at work. She particularly likes Chapter 12 in which Moore writes:
"Your life work is about your life first. You can fail and quit and change and go down the ladder of success and still have a life work. You don't even have to understand how failure and instability have made you who you are. These things are often inscrutable. You only have to trust that your story is unfolding and you will eventually understand what it means."
The blogger includes, "I love the idea that your entire life is your work."
