TRANSPIRATIONS: Guidance for the Head & Heart through Career and Beyond
Greetings and Best Wishes for the Holidays!

TranSpirationsThank you for your understanding in receiving another notice about my book, TRANSPIRATIONS, an odd name, I know. When you think about it though, it does sound like a word describing movement from one work to another. Transition. Inspiration. Spiritualty. All connected.

Poet, Jane Hershfield, has one of my favorite transition axioms. "Everything is changing, everything is attention." (You might also sneak in there with apologies to Jane, "Everyone is always changing.")

Anyway, the last two parts, “Everything is connected is what I believe, and why I wrote the book. “Pay attention” is what I hope buyers and readers will easily and enthusiastically do when they engage the book. The book is about connections….

…..between lessons from personal events in my life and ideas to promote a successful transition in vocation, ministry, career and/or retirement.

……among spiritual truths by Masters ancient and contemporary like Thomas Merton, Henry Nouwen, Theresa of Avila, Joyce Rupp, Parker Palmer and Ignatius Loyola to name a few, and inspiration for your work path.

……between hands on advice from my work and the work of leaders like William Bridges, Richard Bolles, and Herminia Ibarra, effective and strong job seeking behaviors and the motivation to integrate them into your plan for new, meaningful work.

Throughout my adult lifetime of helping individuals and organizations, I've relied on the combination of faith and work. Many times faith in myself, my family, friends and God was on shaky ground. But by balancing hard work (sometimes translated as simply trying something new or different), I found positive outcomes. Or hope for something better.

When faith was strong, work seemed easier. When weak, not so much. But always trying to do something positive, and always seeking help from others. Without these elements, the places between meaningful work can be lonely. With them, most things are possible.

I'm grateful for it all. Looking back is always easier. The great teacher.

I wish you strength, stamina, faith and hope in your transpiration. I'm glad to hear from you by email.
