Book Review - Wisdom Meets Passion: When Generations Collide and Collaborate

About 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.

My Take on the Book
This book makes you truly think about the goals and vision that you have for your life. The authors make some very salient points about what it takes to be successful and show that any good idea must have a combination of wisdom and passion behind it to make it successful! In this book you learn about how the traits that are unique to you can be combined with a true passion for what you are working on to make something extraordinary. The book was practical and timely and anyone in today's society will gather some very important lessons from reading this and sharing it with others! By the end of this book, if you are like me, you will be clamoring to read it again as there are so many great ideas shared that will help you in all aspects of your life!
