It is one thing to find a book positively loaded with solid, up-to-date information as Miller's book, it is another to find one as compulsively readable as No More Mondays. Filled with wonderful stories, and powerful anecdotes, this book delivers a motivational jolt.
Part of the attraction is that Mr. Miller is saying just what I want to hear. I've spent much of my life wishing I could be one of the many-those who rise dutifully each morning and head to the office where they laugh sociably with their colleagues, contribute brilliantly at every meeting, and receive a regular paycheck. Unfortunately, like so many others, this round peg does not fit into that square hole
The traditional workplace is hostile territory for people like me-with nary a brain cell dedicated to left-brain activity. Miller says that the old workplace is disappearing, Good news! The real story, though, is that we right-brain, creative types will inherit the new one, where out-of-the box thinking and new untried methods will replace our current, antiquated system.
For years, we right brainers have found it difficult to be who we're hard-wired to be, without apology. Many of us come from families full of left-brain traditionalist who not only don't understand us but see us as patently defective. Dan Miller gives us permission to be ourselves and also supports and encourages our efforts to become more of who we are. Our time has come. Right brainers unite and rise victorious!Read more ›
He sets out a program for finding your career choice. He also lists a few people who were considered failures. People like Jerry Seinfeld, Winston Churchill, and Steven Spielberg. I enjoyed the story of the manager of the Grand Ole Opry who fired Elvis Pressley after one performance. He said, "You ain't going nowhere, son. You ought to go back to driving a truck." That has to be one shining example of bad judgment. He also drives home the point that we should never let anyone else's opinion stop us from pursuing our dreams. If you're not happy with your job, take a look at No More Mondays. You may find the answers you're looking for here.
Miller flavors his chapters with a Christian perspective on finding your purpose. Some might find this out of place and a turn-off; I did not. His aim is to stimulate thinking about alternatives to the "conventional" corporate path, paths that can lead to a greater sense of meaning through work and even more money.
What I found best about "No More Mondays" was the concepts of and distinction between linear income and residual income,. The former is swapping hours for dollars. The latter involves developing intellectual property and content which you can sell again and again and again.
If you are considering career changes or are at a career crossroads - or want to see how to view yourself as You, Inc. - I would recommend "No More Mondays."
This book is great! I love the creative ways that Dan Miller makes you feel comfortable in either incorporating his ideas, or better yet, being encouraged to come up with your own. This is a great book if you are needing that final push of encouragement to go out and try something new, especially on your own. Thanks, Dan!
