baseball-player-583655_1280I’m shrinking my “To Be Read” pile while watching baseball games. So it makes sense that the next book on my pile uses the hitting analogy of finding your sweet spot in life. That place where everything comes together with powerful results.

The Cure for the Common Life by Max Lucado seeks to help each of us explore our uniqueness and to find the place where we can use our strengths to make a big deal out of God every day for the rest of our lives. For those struggling to figure out what really makes them tick, there’s even a section for discovering your S.T.O.R.Y. or the place where your strengths, topic, optimal conditions, relationships, and priceless “Yes!” feeling intersect.

You’ve probably heard it said that if you can get paid for doing something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. That’s living in the sweet spot. That place where success and satisfaction intersect.

And for those stuck in unappealing jobs, there are several chapters devoted to helping us recognize who the real Boss is, finding ways to use even little deeds to make a big difference, and learning to serve others every day.

Do you feel like your life is common? There is a cure.

(Come back next Wednesday to see what’s next on my summer “To Be Read” pile.)

What about you? Do you love your job? Are you using your strengths? When have success and satisfaction intersected in your past?
