"Sweet spot." Golfers understand the term. So do tennis players. Ever swung a baseball bat or paddled a Ping-Pong ball? If so, you know the oh-so-nice feel of the sweet spot. Life in the sweet spot rolls like the downhill side of a downwind bike ride. But you don't have to swing a bat or a club to know this. What engineers give sports equipment, God gave you.A zone, a region, a life precinct in which you were made to dwell. He tailored the curves of your life to fit an empty space in his jigsaw puzzle. And life makes sweet sense when you find your spot.

But if you're like 87 percent of workers, you haven't found it. You don't find meaning in your work--or you're one of the 80 percent who don't believe their talents are used. What can you do? You're suffering from the common life, and you desperately need a cure.

Best-selling author Max Lucado has found it. In Cure for the Common Life he offers practical tools for exploring and identifying your own uniqueness, motivation to put your strengths to work, and the perfect prescription for finding and living in your sweet spot for the rest of your life.

I have read many of Max's books and have found them all to be inspiring. This too, is a book filled with inspiration. However, I have never found a Lucado book to be more challenging than this one. It is a must read for those seeking to find their God-given gifts and strengths and use them to glorify God in their everyday lives. It is not a book to read quickly. When the reader meditates upon each the sections of this book, he will discover his strengths and use them to glorify God everyday of their life. There in lies the "Sweet Spot".
