At its core, the book is a tangible, step-by-step guide for readers pursuing their own vocation, a term that Askinosie uses to describe one’s career calling. If the concept of vocation sounds mystical, that’s because, in a way, it is. In fact, there’s a whole chapter entitled “Ancient Monasticism for Modern Business” in which Askinosie recounts his experience as a Family Brother of Assumption Abbey in Ava.
Where Meaningful Work succeeds is in breaking down the celestial concept of vocation into achievable steps for any reader. It’s an excellent pick for team leaders looking to engage their employees, for entrepreneurs evaluating their next steps or for individuals new to the working world. Meaningful Work promises to empower readers as they inject meaning into their work and seek their own vocation.
