Goins talks a lot about calling and about how we often know what we're meant go do at a young age. He shows the value of deliberate practice at what we want to do. One of the most significant pieces of advice Goins give is the challenge to live what he calls a "portfolio life." Living a portfolio life means that you don't focus on just one thing. Some people don't just want to be one thing; they want to use their skills in a variety of areas. These are the people that live portfolio lives.
The Art of Work is just the right kind of book for Jeff Goins to write. His insight is compelling, especially if you've followed his journey. If you struggle with knowing what career you're supposed to be doing, The Art of Work can help you get focused.

The dominoes themselves are a durable cardboard material and each one features a number and a Bible related character or image. The goal is to play while also referencing the Bible storybook that comes with the game.
It's a fun game for my young children, though I do wish the storybook was as durable as the dominoes. Nevertheless, it's a great game for teaching kids counting and matching skills and important Bible stories.
