I’m a big fan of Tom Rath and his work.
So… When I saw that this book was coming out, I was eagerly looking forward to reading it. Like his others, it’s fantastic—super-quick reading and equally inspiring.
“Life’s Great Question” that beckons all of us (“What can I contribute?”) is beautifully framed by the Martin Luther King, Jr. quote that kicks off the book: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?“
This book, of course, is a field manual to help us go about answering that question so we can, as per the subtitle of the book: “Discover How You Contribute to the World.”
(btw: Note the present-tense of that statement. It’s not “Discover How You CAN Contribute to the World.” It’s implicitly pointing to how you ALREADY ARE contributing. Helping us appreciate all the ways we’re ALREADY contributing is a big part of the book.)
The book also comes with a code for a web site to help you walk through the wisdom and get more clarity on how you can make your contribution at an even deeper level. Get a copy of the book and check out the site at .
Of course, it’s packed with Big Ideas. I’m excited to share a few of my favorites we can apply to our lives TODAY, so let’s jump straight in!
