Wisdom Meets Passion is a book written by Dan Miller and Jared Angaza. It's more of a "guide" book. I had mixed feelings about reviewing this book because there were mixed reviews. Seems as though half of the people liked it, and the other half didn't it.
It was written well, with alot of thought put into it. It's an easy to read book that flows nicely. It does tend to get a bit boring at times though. It's hard to stay focused at certain points in the book.
Baby Boomers have relied on wisdom to pave the way to success. Education, knowledge, investing strategies, 401ks, real estate leverage and carefully contrived career paths were expected to lead to success in one's golden years. seeing the overall failure of that formulaic approach to life, younger generations today have relied on passion as the guiding principle for their version of success.
And yet both are necessary. Regardless of age, those using wisdom only to achieve their goals are likely to end up disappointed and unfulfilled-feeling as though they have been chasing empty rainbows. Those trusting passion alone may lose the power of wisdom and end up underachieving, falling short of their potential and unable to attain their worthy goals.
Wisdom without passion is a Ferrari with no gas in the tank. Passion without wisdom is a tricked out 57 Chevy with no steering wheel. In Wisdom Meets Passion, bestselling author Dan Miller and his entrepeneurial son Jared Angaza show how to blend the two-equipping you to accomplish your greatest goals, experience the thrill of fulfilling relationships, create meaningful work, and to complete your purpose and calling here on earth no matter which age group you represent.
I have mixed feelings about the book and can't really say I'd give it a thumbs up or a thumbs down. It just seems to sit in between.
