Product Description

Is Your Job Making You “Stupid”?

Adam Smith, author of The Wealth of Nations, once wrote that a person who spends his life performing the same repetitive tasks “generally becomes as stupid and ignorant as it is possible for a human creature to become.” Wow! Now that’s not a pretty picture. Unfortunately, much of our work today consists of those boring, repetitive tasks.

But maybe you’re one of the many who have gotten caught up in thinking work is just something you do to support your weekends. Work is that necessary evil, a means to an end, or just a curse from God. You probably take your role of providing for yourself and those depending on you seriously. But you don’t expect to enjoy your work—you just do what has to be done.

Only now you’re seeing that even loyalty and dependability bring no guarantees. Lately you’ve seen coworkers who have been let go after years of faithful service. Perhaps your entire industryhas been shaken by outsourcing or changing technology. Maybe you’re tired of the long commute and being tied to your desk when you know you could make your own hours and still be productive. You may have ideas stirring that you think could create new income and time freedom.

But here comes another Monday. Maybe feeling trapped is just the reality of the way things are. Doesn’t everyone dread Mondays? Doesn’t every responsible person just bury their dreams and passions in exchange for getting a paycheck?

Absolutely not! All of us, no matter how old we are or what kind of work we’re doing, can learn to bring the same excitement to our jobs that we bring to whatever we love to do on our days off. I believe that each one of us can pursue work that is a reflection of our best selves—a true fulfillment of our callings.

No More Mondays
will show you that meaningful work really is within your grasp. And once you’ve opened the door and seen all the exciting career opportunities that await you—whether you decide to revolutionize your current job or launch a new career altogether—you’ll find you can’t go back to the old way of working.”

From No More Mondays

For everyone who dreads going to work on Monday mornings, inspiring advice on how to find fulfilling work in an uncertain age.

Do you hate Mondays?

If so, what's keeping you at your current job?

If you said a steady paycheck and the promise of a secure retirement, then you're in for a big disappointment. In today's volatile economy, there is nothing safe about punching the clock for a job you hate.

As beloved talk-show host and bestselling author Dan Miller reveals, the only way to find true security is by following your calling and then finding or creating work that matches that calling and passion.

No More Mondays’s practical, inspirational advice speaks to people looking for guidance on how to launch a new career or business, those who want to stay in their current jobs and give the old 9-to-5 model a twenty-first-century makeover, and managers desperate to understand the way people want to work today. For all of them, Dan Miller's message is loud and clear: If you're one of those people who dread going to work on Mondays, do something about it!

Customer Reviews:

  • Yeah! A message right brainers can grab onto and run with.
    For years, my husband and I have been devotees of motivational books and tapes. We have scores of them in our collection and have read and listened to many more. Previous, to No More Mondays, neither of us had ever read anything by Dan Miller. We won't be making that mistake again.

    It is one thing to find a book positively loaded with solid, up-to-date information as Miller's book, it is another to find one as compulsively readable as No More Mondays. Filled with wonderful stories, and powerful anecdotes, this book delivers a motivational jolt.

    Part of the attraction is that Mr. Miller is saying just what I want to hear. I've spent much of my life wishing I could be one of the many-those who rise dutifully each morning and head to the office where they laugh sociably with their colleagues, contribute brilliantly at every meeting, and receive a regular paycheck. Unfortunately, like so many others, this round peg does not fit into that square hole

    The traditional workplace is hostile territory for people like me-with nary a brain cell dedicated to left-brain activity. Miller says that the old workplace is disappearing, Good news! The real story, though, is that we right-brain, creative types will inherit the new one, where out-of-the box thinking and new untried methods will replace our current, antiquated system.

    For years, we right brainers have found it difficult to be who we're hard-wired to be, without apology. Many of us come from families full of left-brain traditionalist who not only don't understand us but see us as patently defective. Dan Miller gives us permission to be ourselves and also supports and encourages our efforts to become more of who we are. Our time has come. Right brainers unite and rise victorious!

    The upshot of the story is that my husband and I were both so inspired, that we have decided to pursue an idea we've had for some time for a $5 improvement for every kitchen in America-and beyond. "American Inventor" here we come! You just can't ask any more from a book than that.

  • Life Changing Book.
    Dan Miller's No More Mondays was the motivational book that I needed. This book has truly changed my life. If you are in a job that you are not happy with. Do not hesitate. Read this book....more info
  • Dan's best yet!
    I've read nearly all of Dan Miller's books and manuals. No More Mondays draws from each of those titles and products to "pull it all together" in one user friendly volume. His advice and recommendations give you enough of a skeleton for you to begin to hang your own dreams and goals upon. Some material is repreated from his other books, but there's enough new material to make it worthwhile. Keep a notepad with you as you read and take notes as you go, too. Good luck!...more info

  • Very Creative and Insightful
    No More Mondays: Fire Yourself -- and Other Revolutionary Ways to Discover Your True Calling at Work

    This book is great! I love the creative ways that Dan Miller makes you feel comfortable in either incorporating his ideas, or better yet, being encouraged to come up with your own. This is a great book if you are needing that final push of encouragement to go out and try something new, especially on your own. Thanks, Dan!...more info

  • Needs to Rearrange the Chapters
    Great book. But a HUGE problem was that in order to absorb this book you need to know you passion (calling) in life. Well he doesn't really go in depth in to that until almost half way through the book. This was TOTALLY ANNOYING. For the first half of the book I was trying to figure out what I am good at/love, and could not absorb any of the nuggets in the first half because I felt like I needed to have a better idea of my calling. Then earlier in the book he says that maybe your an inventor, and has DOZENS of examples of people inventing stuff and getting rich off of it. Then at the end of the book he says something like only 1% of people make their wealth from acting,sports,and inventions! It seemed to get my hopes up and then dash it at the last chapter. Still a good book, but I say if your starting a new invention/freelance/business, to start SLOW, don't quit your day job, start very slowly...and read Dave Ramsey's The Total Money Makeover....more info
  • Much needed mix of work and spirituality
    If you liked 48 Days, you'll love this. Dan Miller does an excellent job of demonstrating in a very real-world way how indeed, whether you realize it or not, everything is spiritual. We have too long compartmentalized our religion in one box, our work in another, and our play and families in others. Dan shows how important it is to a full life to recognize the role of Spirituality in our work. There's much more to the book than just that- but that one factor is what impressed me most. A great and inspiring read....more info
  • No More Mondays... and no more excuses for staying in dead-end jobs
    The nature of work is changing dramatically in America; the evidence is everywhere - from the collapse and bankruptcies of giant, seemingly invulnerable corporations to the endless restructuring, re-organizing and down-sizing of companies large and small, seeking to remain competitive or simply survive in the turbulent waters of the new millennium's worldwide economy.

    People in virtually every profession are finding themselves cast into the job market, as the security of corporate jobs evaporates and benefits disappear. The old models of long-term commitment and loyalty to an employer, which in turn provide retirement and benefits to the faithful, are rapidly disintegrating. It is a time of change and disillusionment for many.

    No More Mondays reminds us that change is inevitable, but that with every change come new opportunities, often more exciting and rewarding than those of the past. What is refreshing about this book is the focus on the positive aspects, the opportunities for greater fulfillment and improved quality of life that these changes present to those who will see them.

    Dan Miller has written a highly readable book to help individuals see these opportunities and re-think their career choices - or perhaps think deeply and critically about them for the first time. No More Mondays is filled with inspiring advice, anecdotes and stories that Miller uses to get the reader to look inward, and question what it is they really want to do with their lives, from the standpoint of the work they do and the role work plays in fulfilling them personally.

    Practical and immediately useful ideas practically leak out of the pages of this book on every subject from identifying the work that ignites your true passion...to the business structure your endeavor will take and the options for financing it. If you are worried about job security or if you have ever considered doing "something else" that would be more meaningful or more rewarding personally, this book is an excellent resource and a highly recommended starting point.

  • No More Mondays
    Great resource for finding your true intrests and getting your career path straight. The book summed up 48 Days and the Creative Income books. I enjoy all of Dan's materials!...more info
  • Not much here...
    I was hoping for some good tangible instructions on finding a fulfilling career. However, the book is just full of stories about this person or that person who were stuck in jobs they did not like and then were able to find some other job that was more fulfilling. This book was not beneficial at all....more info
  • Great motivational book
    This book is better than his first book 48 days to the work you love because it is better written and flows well. I found this book to be very helpful in my career search and it helped me to see the opportunities outside the traditional job. His book is full of hope to those who struggle at a 9 to 5 job. Get it if you want to be inspired and need a starting point for a new career and a new way of life....more info
