Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Hi, I'm Pete, and I'm a recovering addict.
I'm not addicted to drugs or booze (or smoking crack cocaine while I was in a drunken stupor in Toronto). I'm addicted to something much worse and more spiritually toxic.
I'm addicted to wanting something for nothing.
I'm inpatient at heart. I want everything. Now.
I understand hard work pays off, and that's great. I just want it to pay off immediately.
But when it does, I'm not happy with the results. In fact I'm empty inside and I want more.
I heard a great quote this week about addiction:
Addicts love things and use people.
And ain't that the truth? Because I can never get enough stuff to be happy. And lots of stuff without meaningful relationships is really an unhappy place for me to be. And so I go after more stuff, only to find that I only feel less happy - so of course I self-prescribe the need for more stuff.
But I did say I'm a recovering addict. And Step 1 is to admit to my problem - and to admit I am powerless over it. And so I'm declaring to the world that I'm recovering from stuff-itis (the desire of too much stuff).
