From the Back Cover:

"I am smart. I work hard. Iím good at what I do. Why donít I feel like Iím succeeding?"
Are you meant for greater things, but your job seems to be getting in the way? If you've been settling for a mere job or paycheck Ė STOP! You CAN work your passions and find your Lifeís Work!
Regardless of where you are in your career, Passion at Work offers you a proven five-step process for discovering what you are meant to do... and then shows you, step by step, how to do it!
Lawler Kang shows how to find the mission that brings you the deepest meaning, and the tools to decipher your most powerful combination of passions, proficiencies and priorities to create a niche only you can dominate! You'll set day-to-day priorities for moving toward your goal, preparing tactical roadmaps, milestones, budgets, marketing plans... just what youíd do to launch a business, plan a project... except this time, youíre going to change your life!
Kang shares epiphanies from his extraordinary twenty-year journey overcoming four life-altering operations -- one leaving him in a coma, a wheelchair and visibly disfigured -- and then rising to pinnacles of business success. Lawler also draws on commanding stories of others who have shared in the same profound discovery Ė that each of us already has the power within to take the reins of our future. The major takeaway- working your passions means living (happily!) on your terms, however you define them.
Based on insights gleaned from a Wharton MBA and 15 years of managerial trench work, Lawler presents straightforward business-based exercises to help you identify, actualize, monetize, and sell your plan to all relevant stakeholders.
