Review

Work without meaning and direction is drudgery and torture. Work with meaning and direction is a gift to you and to those you work with and for. "Something More" is the road map not to just a better job or career but to a more meaningful and purposeful life. If you are looking to be excited & engaged about your work at the office and at home, this is your guide. This book will change your life!
 
- Chester Elton, NYT Best-selling author and consultant on workplace engagement & culture

Too many of us end up learning how to work efficiently, but not effectively. Because of the demands on our personal and professional life, we play defense instead of offense with our time, energy and resources. We just hope to make to Friday and "nobody gets hurt." In this book, Randy Hain provides a roadmap to working and living on purpose. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants take control of their life again.
 
 - Dr. Tim Elmore, author, speaker and President of GrowingLeaders.com

Randy Hain continues to inspire. With this new book, we are reminded that we are universally created with a deep yearning for purpose and meaning. We seek to know that our life, our work, our relationships matter to the people around us. But integrated, authentic lives don't just happen. With Randy's help, through stories shared and insight given, we have the opportunity to choose `intention', and that intention coupled with grace will lead us to the gift of Something More. A good read, an important book to share, and a great choice for a career minded book study!

One mark of extraordinary professionals is the ability to turn their networks into communities. And in a genuine community, people share with each other their deeper values and aspirations, as well as their struggles to live them out; they are REAL with each other. They don't sugarcoat things; they ask important and hard questions--questions that underlie the pursuit of a more meaningful life. In Something More, Randy Hain offers busy, striving, seeking professionals a great gift; he invites us to be a part of his community and to take on the big questions along with the many insightful members he profiles. Any professional's thinking and living will be enriched for accepting the invitation.

Format: Paperback
Busy? Full time job + writing projects + volunteering + home schooling + committees, oh yes, there’s the family and faith to squeeze in there somewhere while trying to remain sane and healthy. Randy Hain’s been there and found “something more.” Early on, he recognized that we humans can’t do it all, so we have to make choices based on our values, otherwise we’ll leave wreckage wherever we go.

Consider inviting Hain’s Liguori paperback the next time you sit down to have a serious talk with yourself. Life constantly changes about us. What worked yesterday may no longer represent your values and goals. Ask yourself, has your motivation drifted off the mark? Does your routine still lead you toward true happiness? Randy assists his readers to probe their motivations, unearth the obstacles that chain them to unhappiness, while he encourages them to integrate faith, family and community into work and other activities.

Randy Hain hails from a corporate background, but rails against the life-devouring culture often associated with the business world. His guest contributors offer solutions that work in the life of any busy person who has realized that the time has come for life choices that lead to authenticity—life as it was meant to be, a life focused on the deepest happiness in God and those you love.

My favorite of Randy's thoughts:

Corporate leaders should serve their employees by insuring an environment that nurtures growth, strengthens family and the community. People before product and profits.
Find mentors who will share both honest criticism and heartfelt encouragement.
Continually update your skills to survive in a world where the only certainty is “change.

Format: Paperback
Many business books offer practical, `how to' advice for achieving a better career and life. Others offer inspiration from mentors who have found meaning, direction and balance in what they do. Rarely does a book offer both, but Randy Hain's "Something MORE: The Professional's Pursuit of a Meaningful Life" is such a book.

This concise, focused and engaging guide will leave you wanting to put on your boots and tackle your own life's journey with self-awareness and purpose. Hain asks a wide range of business executives, religious leaders, consultants, entrepreneurs and workers to reveal their definition of a meaningful life and how they pursue it. Those discussions and the insightful questions at the end of each chapter, will serve as an effective roadmap for asking yourself what you want, what matters to you, what you value and what changes you want to make to live authentically. Hain's summary of practical tips at the end will get you moving in the right direction.

His book was inspired by the author's work as an executive recruiter and his 20-plus years of conversations with other professionals who had shared with him a desire to do something more with their lives than simply make a living. Despite achieving status, success and financial wealth, many still had the nagging feeling that something was missing. The author shares how he also went looking for that `something more,' and found it in his faith in God.

I find the timing perfect for this subject. Thanks to a deep economic recession and an almost jobless recovery, we have never had more workers who are displaced, overwhelmed, over-loaded, underemployed and searching for what to do next. Whether you are a new grad, a struggling manager, a career-changer or a new retiree, my advice is to read this book.
