From the author of the best-selling "Buddha Walks into a Bar...",
wisdom for "Generation Next" on how to make your work meaningful,
satisfying, and of benefit to others. Does it ever seem that a lot
of the people you work with are, well, jerks? This book is about
how not to let work turn you into one of them. Apply the simple
Buddhist teachings and practices Lodro Rinzler provides here to
whatever you do for a living, and you'll not only avoid jerk-hood,
but you'll be setting out on the path toward making your livelihood
an expression of your inherent wisdom, honesty, and compassion.
You'll discover practical ways to bring mindfulness into
administrative support, cabinet-making, financial management,
nursing, truck-driving, or latte-brewing. In the process, you'll
discover genuine empathy for the folks you once found so difficult.
You'll also learn leadership skills that apply compassion to
management in a way that increases happiness along with efficiency.
This is career advice of the profoundest kind, geared toward
today's twenty- and thirty-something workers and job-seekers whose
employment outlook is radically different from that of a generation
ago. As Lodro shows, even if the path of work shifts beneath your
feet, it's possible to make your livelihood a source of
satisfaction and of deep meaning.
