A nominee for the Books for a Better Life award
As a pioneer in the field of life coaching, Laura Berman Fortgang has spent decades helping people figure out what they want to do with their lives. And so it was a bit of a surprise when a theme she heard repeatedly from clients emerged in her own thinking and would not be dismissed: work didn't feel as "meaningful" to her as it once had. It was one of those big realizations one has from time to time. The funny thing was that it turned out the "solution(s)" to her problem were quite small...
In The Little Book on Meaning Laura Berman Fortgang reveals that while our hunger for a meaningful life can be enormous, our desire for meaning is usually satiated by small, bite-size morsels of meaning-the small, almost incidental events or "achievements" that comprise the fabric of our lives. According to Fortgang, meaning is where you look for it, and through tenderly drawn stories from her own life and the lives of those around her, she shows readers how they too can peek around corners to discover the small elements of their lives that truly matter.
