Show me a person who is happy at work and I will show you someone who is happy in life. Show me someone happy in life and I will show you someone who whistles at work. The very same lessons that make us successful and happy at work are also good lessons in life.
Many successful people say their work is so satisfying that it barely meets the definition work. This same group also agrees that even though it might not pass the “work” test, the tasks that fill their days still need maintenance and order. Sometimes that maintenance and order comes at the expense of independence, and you might find yourself with a boss.
What happens when you have to report your comings-and-goings to someone younger than you, less technologically savvy than you, less experience than you, less credentialed than you? What do you do when you have a supervisor who, in spite of all of his/her excellent qualities, is not as good as you are at what you do? What do you do when you feel you are smarter than the boss? What if you ARE the boss?
This book is a compilation of essays to guide and inspire employees, employers and the self-employed as they navigate real-life challenges associated with life on and off the job.
