Ready to reap the rewards of a job well and happily done? Even in a tight economy, job satisfaction isn't a luxury; fulfilled, happy employees are productive, innovative, and loyal. And workplace fulfillment spills over into happier families and better communities. In Jim Donovan's new book, HAPPY @ WORK, you'll learn shift-producing strategies on everything from managing time, making decisions, and marking milestones to breaking patterns, bouncing back, and becoming exceptional. Each tip's method and rationale are clearly explained, and real workplace vignettes demonstrate the benefits and results that can be gleaned from simple shifts and actions. HAPPY @ WORK will empower you with the knowledge that no matter the circumstance, you can think, act, and feel in ways that create purpose, success, and, yes, happiness.
“I struggle with meditation, my mind is always going. How can I get to that place where I have no thoughts?” ~ Martin, Tulsa, OK
Forget about stopping your mind and all those racing thoughts. For me, my meditation practice serves the magical purpose of celebrating my life. It is the opportunity for me to get fully present with the 60 trillion+ cells twinkling inside of me and simply be with my breath.
Instead of trying to shut your thoughts off, distract or entertain your mind in a positive way by giving it a technique to focus on. For me, I love to practice all sorts of different breathing techniques, sound toning and inner body exploration.
When your mind has something to focus on (which is all it ever needs in life), you’ll soon find yourself accessing deeper spaces of peace and a calmer state of being.
If you need any techniques, there are lots of resources on my website as well as on this incredible machine known as “The Internet!”
