Publishers Description "Practical, useful help for Christians and nonbelievers alike. Jones has made her mark, and her books are here to stay." --"Christian Retailing "Individuals and companies have been learning what history has demonstrated all along--that people or groups with carefully defined missions have always led and surpassed those who have none. Yet the process of outlining that mission statement has been, up to now, an arduous one that all too few have committed the time, energy, and resources to undertake. In "The Path," best-selling author Laurie Beth Jones provides inspiring and practical advice to lead readers through every step of both defining and fulfilling a mission. With more than ten years' experience in assisting groups and individuals, Jones offers clear, step-by-step guidance that can make writing a mission statement take a matter of hours rather than months or years. Rich with humor, exercises, mediations, and case histories, "The Path" is essential reading for anyone seeking a lighter, clearer way in the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Path: Creating Your Mission Statement for Work and for Life?
Clear the Path to Your Life Mission Mar 4, 2008
Recently, I purchased my 4th copy of The Path: Creating Your Mission Statement for Work and for Life to give away and constantly recommend it to friends. Through a process of choosing verbs, Laurie Beth Jones simplifies the process of clarifying and fine tuning a mission statement that applies not only work but one's entire life. A small group can use the same method to find an shared mission statement for their work together. Jones concludes with a study of the life of Nehemiah and relates it to the concept of being guided by a mission throughout one's lifetime.
Find Your Path! Mar 1, 2008
This book is a wonderful tool for those hoping to have a life vision. If you don't have a vision for your life--read this book!
Gain Clarity About Your Life Mission Jan 2, 2008
This is a great book for gaining clarity about your life mission. The author understands why having a consistent context is a powerful element to bring to all that you do. I enjoy her succinct exercises and have used them with clients in the past.
Listen up, confused people! :) Mar 14, 2007
I am only part-way through the book, but I give it a high rating because it's quality so far. It offers both theory and practicality, and a "how to", along with plenty of examples; everything good teaching should do. Now, I noticed that people that gave this book fewer stars did so because they approached the title of the book assuming it was to create a mission statement for their BUSINESS or CORPORATION. But, I interpret "create a mission statement for work and life" as creating your INDIVIDUAL mission statement for your INDIVIDUAL work...not necessarily your company as a whole. I'm imagining that'd be a whole 'nother book perhaps with a more global-systems take in regards to companies. I do believe Laurie Beth Jones has several workshops a year and private consulting to help with that, though, if you check out her personal website. Anyhow, for individuals, this seems to have a lot of value to me. But, the exercises in this book do not lend themselves, nor do they seem to be created for "companies". Just a clarification. Great book so far.
Life Changing! Oct 6, 2006
Myself and three other friends read this book together in college and I can confidently say that it changes the entire direction of my life. Jones takes you through the necessary steps to write your mission statement. It was clear and easy. Once you know your mission statement decisions are so much easier to make, regarding the direction of your life. Does this task align with my overall mission or not? In the age of busyness and trying to constantly align our priorities, this is a very important starting point to this never-ending challenge.
