Reviews - What do our customers think?
If you are ready to really think about your life and where you are going, try this book on for size  Dec 14, 2006
This gentle, introspective, and thought-provoking book doesn't shirk the hard questions or seek to wrap things up neatly for you, as many career guides try to with their tests and checklists. Instead, Feinberg trusts that if you are willing to take the time and energy to ask yourself the hardest questions and face your life, that you can make a real success of it.

This is a Christian-based book, so the author does quote a few bible verses and talk about how God might lead you in certain directions. It might not be the best choice for a non-Christian, but at the same time the religion isn't heavy-handed or off-putting, so if you think that her approach might be for you, don't let the religious aspect turn you off to it.

The strength of this book is in the thought-provoking questions she asks. Each chapter is divided into sections for each step in your journey of figuring out where you want to go in your life and career, and each section has a lot of material about things we should ask ourselves, pitfalls to consider, and new ways of thinking about it all. There are also some wonderful personal stories of people who have found themselves at a crossroads and have made either a mistake to learn from or a good choice to try to emulate.

I already have a career that I find satisfying and joyful, but I often wonder "What if?", since I have so many passions that could be taken in a money-making direction. This book helped me consider a lot of the benefits to following a few of my dreams, while providing the necessary reality checks.

This would be an excellent book for a bible study group or a group of under-30's to read together. Not only does each chapter have a lot to discuss, but the end of the book has some very personally affecting discussion questions that could be effectively used in a one-on-one or group setting.
solid book... helps you ask questions, not answer them for you  Nov 23, 2006
margaret feinberg has written an excellent book, what the heck am i going to do with my life? it is geared toward those in their 20s who are asking that exact question, or some similar paraphrase.

i found margaret's writing to be very accessible and clear. the book's chapters each deal with one main concept, such as "calling: what pulls you?" and "impact: will it live beyond you?" i should note that the book is written from a christian worldview. if you don't share such, you'll probably still find it to be a worthwhile read, but differing worldviews may keep it from being as helpful as it will be for others.

there are two general aspects of the book that i found most useful. first, every chapter ends with a series of questions to think through. in some chapters there are also questions interspersed in the middle so you have the opportunity to think about things before the ideas begin to fade from your mind. there's even space to write out answers if you are so inclined. but even if you're not, i would recommend taking time to slowly think through the questions and not just breeze by them. they are well thought out and align very well with that chapter's topic. there is also a section of group discussion questions in the back.

second, there are various sidebars interjected throughout the book. they are sometimes just lists of ideas to think about, examples of what's being written about at that point, small self-assessment questionnaires, etc. again, i find them helpful in thinking more deeply about what the chapter is saying, staying better engaged (if you're prone to mental wanderings like i am), and actually understanding and trying to apply what margaret has written about.

overall, i highly recommend this book to anyone in their 20s or early 30s who is asking questions about life and the world, who wants to make a difference and isn't sure they are, who can't figure out how they're going to keep going for another 20 or 50 years, or anywhere in between. it doesn't have a lot of answers, which is good because we're each different, but it lays a foundation to think about such things more clearly and helps you ask and answer questions that will help you to make a few steps toward a more fulfilling, meaningful life.
Real & Really Needed  Sep 20, 2006
I think this book should be required reading for all high school and college seniors. I also believe it would be a good idea to keep it in your reading rotation so that you came across it again every 2 to 3 years.

Why is this book so needed? Well, I think the answer to that can be found first and foremost in what this book is not. It's not filled with tests that are supposed to help you figure out your gifting. It's not filled with pie-in-the-sky talk of finding the job that's going to make your whole life great. It's not trying to provide generic answers to tough questions. It doesn't make any promises to make you rich.

What this book does and does well is to provoke thought about who you are and what impact you can make on the world around you. It's realistic! Margaret has taken great pains to point out the myths that abound about finding the perfect job that never causes stress and makes you a ton of money. She points out that often our passion and calling result in a career choice that meets our financial and emotional needs, but sometimes our career may simply be a means to meet our physical needs thus enabling us to pursue our passion and calling. I especially like the questions and surveys throughout the book that are intended to cause reflection. I believe many who read this book will discover things about themselves that will validate their current career choices or cause them to rethink them.

As someone who made a major career change in the past 4 years and who still has many decisions left to make, I whole-heartedly recommend What the heck am I going to do with my life?. Whether you're still in school or just not satisfied with where you are this book is well worth your time. I fully intend on using it as a small group study in our 20somethings ministry and hope that other ministry leaders will do the same.
Passion, Calling, Destiny  Aug 31, 2006
Be warned - words like passion and destiny and calling are big, powerful, meaningful words. And I think this little book does well in using them for the discussion of "what do I want to do/be when I grow up?"

One of the writing gifts Feinberg brings to her work is the ability to tell a story and weave it into application. With this book asking what is most likely the more gi-normous question facing just about everyone - she takes the time to share pertinent experiences of real people in real life, and then asks the questions and ponders the options available as we all ask "what the heck?"

An opening story struck me where I find myself even now: Jerry Slocum and his passion for mechanical puzzles. Just like life, the answers are usually not out in front - and this thought, for me, was worth the price of admission:

"Jerry noted that - like life - many puzzles don't have clear solutions. They require innovation, creativity, and the willingness to face a challenge. 'One of the things you learn through solving puzzles is that you can't look for the obvious solution and keep trying it over and over, because you'll fail,' he says. 'You have to look at unusual and unorthodox ways of solving the problem. you have to shift to trying to do something one way and then the other, the way the inventor might have. It stimulates your thinking and logic and analysis.'" (p. 20)

Feinberg goes from there to discuss various upbringing factors that play into our choices as we decide what we want to do when we grow up. Family, money, heroes, personality - all play a part in how we choose life paths. How does calling fit into it? What about God and our spiritual growth coming into view? What about a passion for people, or for mechanics or arts or leadership?

"Destiny is a journey - one that we're already on whether we realize it or not. The good news is that destiny is something that happens to you; you don't happen to destiny. In other words, the very nature of destiny requires that someone or something greater than you is at work. Your destiny is out of your control. And that's a good thing." (p. 74)

Stories and application are great, but what does this have to do with me? I'm older, and I've probably already made the choices on what the heck I'm doing that will guide me through the destiny that I do not control. But this is where Feinberg's research and attention to detail comes into the picture. Throughout the book, the reader is asked to ponder, to think, to dream, and to write down. Entry pages are available to answer questions for yourself - rather than relying on my answers or Jerry Slocum's answers or Margaret Feinberg's answers, the reader is invited to join in the conversation with self-pondering and self-inquiry. You ask yourself what's important, what drives you, what in your past or your personality or your walk with the Lord has molded you for this moment in your life? This is where it hits the road, or it hits the fan - can I make this real enough in me to let a book be helpful, to let it be more than another how-to paperback, to let it be more like a guide and director to something really meaningful.

That might be laying it on to thick, but I don't think so. While I've made most of these life-directing choices already, I was also encouraged to keep asking, to keep seeking, to keep knocking - to keep following hard after God and the life He has envisioned for me. I think Margaret has brought something to the table that brings the stories, the application, and the under-appreciated questions to the top of the process. And I'm reading it for me, for how I can mold and shape my own kids in their upbringing and life-experiences, and sharing it with others in our church's small group structure, to help bring those things to bear in others' lives, too.
what to do  Aug 11, 2006
Margaret Feinberg's book what the heck am I going to do with my life?, is a perfect book for those who are at the crossroads of their lives. She gives practical ways to aid you in finding direction for your life.

Margaret is like the big sister that most of us wish we had. She gives calm reassurance to let us all know that it's okay to not know what we want to do when we grow up. Sometimes before you find your calling, you have to search it out.

Margaret also helps us identify our passions in life. By asking thought-provoking yet personal questions, it's easy to find answers to what really makes us tick. By focusing on what we really love as opposed to what our parents or classmates think, pushes us to sometimes stand alone in front of the mirror.

It's good to know that even after many years of job hopping and career changing, we can still have an impact on the world we live in. Margaret makes it clear that it's never too late.

This book is great for those who need a little push or just need someone to hold their hand as they consider, for the first time or re-consider for the 1,000,000th time, what this life is all about.

I highly recommend it.
