Zen and the Art of Making a Living in the Post-modern World: Career Guide for Dharma Bums, Social Activists and Reformed Yuppies by Laurence G. Boldt
This is more than a book about getting a job. It's about people who want to express their talents in a meaningful way that serves others. In Part One, a vision of new possibilities in work begins to take shape in images of poetry, mythology and art, as well as traditional Zen teachings. For Bold, everyone is the artist of his or her life. Part Two guides the reader through the practical action steps to finding and fulfilling one's life work. It offers information on many of the traditional career planning books (resuming writing, interview preparation, etc), as well as information not generally found in career guides, including how to start your own business, how to manage multiple careers and how to love what you're doing until you're doing what you love.
