Review: Happy @ Work: 60 Simple Ways to Stay Engaged and Be Successful
This book is NOT the result of an academic pursuit of a more fulfilling life; Donavan has struggled through every discovery himself and personally tested each of his 60 ideas. Our personal dreams don’t have to be at odds with our nine-to-five work life; we already know what’s best for us and it’s our responsibility to claim it.
His ideas are tools to help us empower ourselves. Each of the 60 techniques is spelled out in two or three realistic, upbeat pages, which can be used as thought-for-the-day meditations or as a step-by-step manual. In addition to suggestions for defining goals, breaking bad habits, and managing time, Donovan discusses aligning goals with values and adding inspiration to action. Let customers know this is a happy, easy-to-read treatise that really can change their lives.
Deep down inside, you know what you most love to do and how you can make your mark on the world. Get ready for some soul-searching.
As a reader, you probably earn a good living but also define success as something more than money and the things it can buy. To you it’s a holistic concept—not just financial success, but also happiness, good relationships, and the ability to give back and contribute to society. “You need a higher purpose than just survival,” says Tina Tessina, Ph.D., a Long Beach, Calif., psychotherapist and author of The Ten Smartest Decisions a Woman Can Make after Forty. “Once self-confidence and self-esteem are established, you’ll need a challenge to feel satisfied, a way to express your uniqueness and individuality to yourself, to friends, and to the world.”
