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.
When I was 18 years old, my first job right out of high school was working in a small plastics factory in a not so good area of town. I worked a night shift where we started at 6 PM and worked until 6 AM, we would work three days on and then we would have the next three days off, at which point we would start another three day cycle.
One night at about 2 AM a man came in the building and was talking to a fellow employee, the rest of us…Continue

Another new book on fitness? Yes! (Jump to the podcast.)
Is it needed? And does it provide a fresh perspective?

Early in the spring, I was reading through "No More Dreaded Mondays" on a train trip to a speaking gig. I had finished "48 Days to the Work You Love" and I was mulling over the next steps on my life journey. There were several questions and passages that stood out from both books.
In "No More…Continue
Each time you speak, your thoughts are on parade. Today's post is inspired by poet and writer Samuel Jackson - "Language is the dress of thought."
As an ambitious young man in his teens, George Washington copied 110 rules of good manners from an English courtesy book of the previous century. He…Continue

My love for the smoker grows each time that I use it. Traeger recommended this recipe for whole roasted chickens. I quickly fell in love when I found that a whole chicken at the grocery store runs $5-$7, cooks in under 90 minutes, and feeds many.
Sous Chef Sam and I made 2 chickens…Continue
As he struggled to form the words he had spoken many times before, in confusion and complete silence, he handed the phone to his colleague, since he was unable to converse and communicate in his normal way.…Continue

Life is full of choices. As we search to uncover our passion, there will be many pitstops along life's highway. Wherever you are in the process, do your best and learn all you can.
Each morning we make a choice to wake up, get out of bed, get dressed, and go to work.
Whether your work is raising children,…Continue
Don’t tell me you don’t have enough time to make things happen in your life – to find a job, to go to school, to start a business, to change careers, to lose a few pounds, whatever it is you’ve been wanting to do…enough TIME is not an excuse to NOT achieve higher levels of success in your life!
Every single one of us is given 168 hours a week, no more, no less! It’s how we choose to spend those hours that determine what kind of life we live. We can choose to…Continue
It's a process that adds tremendous clarity and excitement to our goals, hopes, and dreams.
We used our own words…Continue
This week we salute our nation’s workers. Labor Day is an annual reminder of the contributions American workers have made to the well-being of our country. The Bible agrees that work benefits society and notes some other benefits as well.
Contrary to popular thought, work is not a result of the curse, though the curse has certainly added thorns to our labor. Adam and Eve worked before the fall. Besides monetarily benefiting the laborer and serving the community, hard work…
There is nothing like a big fat greasy burger. Lately I have been eating a lot less carbs which I now know are the foods which make you feel full. I feel like I am starving to lately. After a meeting downtown last Thursday, I found my car magically driving to Guzzi's.
What a sight this place…Continue

Part of my 3D Living Program deals with exercising your will, which is part of your soul. Having a fit, strong will is critical if you want to make good decisions…Continue
A few days ago a young lady came into my office to inquire about a training program. I looked at her and said very matter-of-factly, "You are smarter than that." I begin to ask her questions like I always do, and she continued to tell me she didn't know what she wanted to do.
I wasn't buying it for one minute. I could see much more in her than she even imagined. I gently nudged her with more questions and she FINALLY started talking about what she already had been doing and…Continue
“I want to know my life counts.” Nancy, Marcy, and I all nodded. Our children are grown. We have breathing room in our schedules and wonder what we should be doing. We’ve discovered that “What should I do with my life?” is no longer a question just for young people. We wanted an assignment that would add purpose in life not busyness.
When posed with a similar question Jesus said, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent,” (John 6:29, NASB). Believing is…
I believe unemployment is none other than someone’s state of mind. When you say you’re unemployed, you are saying you’re dependent upon someone giving you a job.
Yes, it is the talk of…Continue
Here is a tip that I heard came from Jerry Seinfeld originally. One of the most important things a writer needs to do is write and to be consisitent. The idea is to get a calendar and every day you write you mark a big RED X on that day's date. You continue and you try not to lbreak the change. It will be your natural tendency not to want to break the chain. Of course it became obvious to me how a person could use this technique for a number of other things besides writing. I think this is…Continue
