Bestselling author and internationally known lecturer Thomas Moore finds people everywhere he goes who express unhappiness with their work lives and ask, “Why am I doing what I’m doing?” In A Life at Work, Moore takes listeners through the transformative process of discovering their deepest purpose in life.

In exploring the strong desire in all of us to feel fulfilled by our work, Moore offers no charts or questionnaires but rather a personal, contemplative guide to traversing obstacles such as inflated egos, despair, and fear that prevent us from finding purpose in our careers. He also shares the struggles of great thinkers and artists who grappled with uncertainty before finding their calling. For those who feel dissatisfied and question the path they’ve chosen, this poignant, practical work will help them discover new answers.

    " Moore has held any number of work titles throughout his life, but the two that seem to have the most influence are "monk" and "psychotherapist." I don't know if it's my age or the point I'm at in my search for what I lovingly refer to as "a real job," but Moore has articulated so many of the things that I've been considering for the last 2 or 3 years, that I really feel validated in my thinking. As long as the basic needs are covered (and let's redefine those, please), it really isn't all about the money - it's about being useful and effective and worthy of serving others. "
