Item description for Cure for the Common Life: Living in Your Sweet Spot (Lucado Premier Library Collectio) by Max Lucado...

Overview
It's only Sunday and you're already dreading Monday. You spend 50+ hours at a job you hate and come home too exhausted to pursue anything other than reality TV. You are not alone: 87 percent of workers don't find meaning at work and 80 percent believe their talents are unused. The resulting attitude impacts health, relationships, and a fundamental sense of happiness, but best-selling author Max Lucado has a cure. In his winsome, encouraging voice, Max gives practical tools to explore your uniqueness, find motivation to put it to work, and get perspective to redefine your concept of work. It's never too late to uncover strengths, discover God's will, and cure the otherwise hopeless prognosis of a common life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Cure For The Common Life (Premier Library Ed)?

Cure For Life  Dec 24, 2009
Cure for the Common Life: Living in Your Sweet SpotThis is an excellent book. I love all of Max Lucado's work and this one challenges you to find the reason you are here. I bought is as new and is arrived on time in excellent condition.
 
Typical Lucado - NOT like his 3:16 book  Jul 15, 2009
I'm a little behind in my Lucado reading. But it took me so long to get through this book.

Max Lucado tells his readers, in Cure for the Common Life, that we need to find our Sweet Spot, that God has made us unique with specific gifts.

And what we should do is figure out what we enjoy doing and then pursue that because it's what God would want us to do.

It's no fun doing something that makes you miserable - and Lucado tells the story of how he hates strategy/building meetings yet was part of them all. Finally he quit and stuck with reading and teaching.

So stop doing the things that make you miserable is the lesson here.

But wait, a couple chapters later he tells a story of a boy who didn't want to hike clear to the top of a mountain like the rest of his friends. Instead of letting him be happy and stop, they forced him to walk the rest of the way.

So much for living in his Sweet Spot.

This book is typical Lucado with easy reading and stories about people galore!
 
Working with "A Cure for the Common Life"  May 19, 2009
Max Lucado always expresses ideas with the most beautiful and accurate word pictures. This book provides the reader a workbook to try to uncover the unique gifts God has provided from birth, in order to understand our purpose on earth. He urges us to dissect every period of our life from childhood on, to zero in on the activities that made us the happiest; those pursuits that made time stand still, and which we would do whether or not we were being paid. God has provided us continuous clues throughout life that lead us to the unique work that will enable us to praise Him fully, in the optimum way we designed for us.
 
Finding Your Sweet Spot  Dec 12, 2008
I buy this book five copies at a time. These are excellent gifts to people who find themselves at a crossroad in life. Whether graduating from high school, college, or experiencing a major life change which causes any of us to question what will we do with our lives. Max guides readers through a life inventory of what they have done to help them decide what they can do. In Max's unique pragmatic style, he employs the principles described by Dr. Arthur Miller in "Designed for Life" in a way that is easy to understand and fun to learn. This is a great book that I have read several times and found it helpful when I retired from the Army.
 
Be happy where you are  Jul 18, 2008
this book has a great lesson about being happy where you are. what I and my husband took from it is that although we may not be happy with our work, we need to realize that perhaps God has us there for a reason. We need to learn to see beyond the obvious. Look deeper. Then you learn to find satisfaction where you didn't before. That is a helpful lesson for today's society and way of life.
