5.0 étoiles sur 5 Find your purpose by planting The Seed 18 mai 2011

Why am I here? What is my purpose? Is this what my life is supposed to be?

Great questions! Jon Gordon's new book, The Seed, helps readers discover the answer. Through a wonderful story about a man given a two week leave of absence by his employer to, essentially, contemplate and renew his commitment to his job, we learn a method to explore our own satisfaction and find our purpose. The keys are, first, being open to discovery and, second, being open to the possibility that we may already be living our purpose but are missing the realization of, and passion for, that.

The story is a simple and engaging read. If you have previously read Gordon's The Energy Bus, you will recognize the appearance of George, and the positive lessons he brings to a discussion about purpose. As with other Gordon books, there are quotable quotes about life, work, and attitude and a simple to understand process to take away and implement.

The four stages of finding one's purpose are taught through the main character's life experiences, his dog, and a mysterious farmer. As Gordon repeatedly does so well in all of his writing, he takes a significant life challenge and presents it in an easy to relate to story, with important lessons presented in such a manner that the reader doesn't realize the reflection and learning that is inspired. As with his other books, there will also be a discussion guide and action plan available on the website soon.

I must admit, I am a Jon Gordon fan. I own all of the books he has written, I have led a transformative, positively energizing book club at work for The Energy Bus, and I rank him among my favorite authors. I love the fable style story, especially when the story applies to live in general, not just work life. When I heard that Gordon was writing a new book, I immediately advance-ordered twelve copies for my next book club. I applied to be one of Gordon's "seed planters" and was honored to be accepted.

Whether you are a fan like I am and have read all of Gordon's books, or if you've never read a Gordon book, order The Seed and read it. You won't regret a moment. And, you just might learn something about your purpose.

Note: As a seed planter, I was given advance access to an online copy of the book. In no other way, however, was this review influenced by the author, publisher, or any other party associated with The Seed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you're feeling lost, stuck and unhappy, this is your book! 18 mai 2011

I loved this book! It illustrates the 4 stages of Purpose beautifully, like a map to follow for those of us willing to take such a journey. The intriguing surprise about the farmer towards the end of the book illustrates how an unbending faith shows us the power of what is truly possible. Thank you to Jon for the reminder that the obstacles in the growth phase are normal and to never give up! Read this will improve your perspectives, encourage you to consider and pursue your purpose, remind you to trust and surrender and promise you that you have everything you need to make a difference!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Praise for the Seed 19 mai 2011
Par Kaye Monroe - Publié sur
The Seed provides a well of revelation for those who are longing for the fulfillment of purpose and experience trouble finding the path to get there. In simple story telling language, Jon Gordon illuminates the paths we must take to finding purpose as we walk on a parallel journey with a young man who has lost his way. He put's us back in touch with the higher calling upon our lives which if often lost in the navigation of everyday life. A must read for those who are stuck, at a standstill, in the valley of decision or have lost passion for life. A great gift for graduates, mid-lifers or those who are standing in the muddy waters of career crisis!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Life Charging Book! 18 mai 2011
Par Deborah Brown - Publié sur

I just finished reading Jon Gordon's The Seed: Finding Purpose and Happiness in Life and Work. Before I was halfway through the book, I felt recharged not only at work but also in my personal life. After reading The Seed, I realized that I had been in a drought. It was a relief to be able to put a label on how I had been feeling. Jon Gordon reminded me that I have a purpose that carries me through not only my workday, but also in my life. My purpose is the thing that charges me up and helps me `overcome' this drought!

Thank you Jon, for inspiring me to rewrite my goals as `purpose driven goals', and for giving me a life charge!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great read for those whom lack patience or just feel "stuck" 25 mai 2011
Par MP - Publié sur
Just finished reading The Seed and wanted to share some honest feedback:

1) Overall inspiring story and an easy read - consistent with Jon's other books
2) Appreciate the references to past books/lessons (energy vampires, gps, energy bus, etc.).
3) On the same point, the references begin to overlap and I began to ask myself "what's new?" when reading sections of the book
4) Reading was a little "God-heavy" at times - may turn off some readers though in retrospect it's probably just a couple of chapters.

Though the message was good, I did not think this was Jon's best book (personal favorite = Training Camp). I did like the universe piece and Josh finding his purpose/passion through his past-home, college, diner, girlfriend, etc. That was powerful and the "beware hobbies" is a nice touch - showing you can still hold on to things you enjoy and you might even be able to creatively implement them in your professional life to "stand out" and work with passion and purpose.

Most of us can relate to the main character in the book, and The Seed is a great reminder on how we can find purpose and happiness in life and work. I see people recommending it as a book for recent graduates, but I think its value/message extends far beyond that group - try people 5, 10, 15 or 30+ years into their career! Makes a great gift whether it's to others or yourself!
