If I had to use one word to describe "Wisdom Meets Passion" it would be "inspiring." The wonderful combination of Dan Miller's tried and true principles and his son's anecdotal stories of most of the principals in action provide a complete picture of exactly what it means to use both wisdom and passion to govern your life. The primary thesis in the book seems to be less about the battle between wisdom and passion than it is about the battle between freedom and security...because as they state in the book, you can't have both. Dan and his son address such controversial topics as the value of a college education, how people waste their lives pursuing security that doesn't exist, how doing what you have a passion for can be the best career path and more. The book also contains exercises to help you figure out what your passion is and how to apply it to your career. Recommended for anyone who is at a career impasse or for someone who is too fearful to do what they know must be done.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

work opportunities, many of which are inspiring. If you enjoy meeting
different people, people who live a different life from most of the
population, these stories will connect you to them. Wisdom Meets
Passion is short on practical advice for job searches or small business
start up, but just might inspire you to find something off the beaten
path you might otherwise have missed.

Awesome read! You have to check it out.
Wisdom Meets Passion – When Generations Collide and Collaborate by Dan Miller and Jared Angaza offers a two generation perspective on living a life of passion through the eyes of wisdom. This father and son team up to talk about such subjects as work, money and education. They come to the conclusion that working just any job is not what God intended for you, but that your passion should dictate what your career choice is. They propose that as you do the thing you love, money will come out of it. In the area of education they encourage life-long learning, though not necessarily in the traditional sense. Instead education should be a constant in your life and a catalyst for your personal growth. The father in this team, Dan draws from many classic motivational figures like Napoleon Hill and Dale Carnegie. I really loved this book as it reinforced some of the themes I’ve been working through in my life. It was a great contrast between the father and son personalities. It encouraged me to go after my dreams and continue with the path I am currently on. This book reminded me that having passion and fighting for my dreams is a part of God’s will for my life. If you want a book that shows you how to blend wisdom with passion while using a non preachy Christian world view; this is the book for you. It will help you to dream big without having your head in the clouds.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
