Work We all need to "Chop Wood and Carry Water." In Thich Nhat Hanh's latest teachings on how to use applied Buddhism in daily life, he looks at how we deal with workplace scenarios, handle home and family responsibilities, and endure traffic jams and other challenges of modern life. By carefully examining our everyday choices he encourages us to become a lotus in a muddy world by building mindful communities, learning about compassionate living, and come to an understanding of our inert "Buddha nature." "Work" aims at contributing to new models of leadership and doing business, but is also full of life-coaching advise and finding our true happiness.

Practical solutions for everyday life 30. Dezember 2012
Von Michael P. Maslanka - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
As an employment lawyer, I am always looking for ways to improve the workplaces of my clients as well as my own. In this practical and simply written book, he shows us how:let the phone ring three times before answering to ensure that you are truly present for whoever is calling(this is especially important because phones now often flash on the identity of the caller;recite a gatha(a poem in the AM before going to work) which sets your frame of mind to one of gratitude("Waking up this morning, I smile/twenty-four brand new hours are before me");listen to your co-worker with only one purpose in mind---to give the other person a chance to express themsleves. He even has a short section(all the sections are in a digestable format) on going to the restroom and using it for a moment of ease and minfulness. The last chapter summarizes thirty ways to reduce stress and is a useful refresher. Another wonderful book by a teacher of understanding and compassion.

Transforming (inner) conflict and stress 19. September 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
After being in my profession for nearly ten years, I had developed many symptoms indicative of burnout. My performance was suffering greatly and I was forced to consider changing my profession. At the same time, I realized that I would probably end up having the same issues in my next job and instead of running away from a job that seemed to be ruining my life, I decided to 'book up'. Luckily, I discovered, and I am still not sure how, Thich Nhat Hahn's books. I studied their titles and bought the ones that addressed the most urgent issues in my life.

This book provides an excellent guideline for rethinking, but even more importantly 're-feeling' work. It is accompanied by effective exercises and sound advice, which I put into practice in order to increase my compassion and mindfulness at work. Sure enough, after about two weeks of solid practice and continual reading, I started to notice very profound changes. My stress response began to diminish and when deadlines got tight - as they always do - I remained cool and still managed to get a decent night's sleep before and after. My understanding for colleagues and superiors was nothing short of transformed. Though it had seemed harmless to hope that some colleagues/superiors learned their lesson, I realized through reading the book that this kind of vengeful thinking harmed me to a great deal as it represented an unresolved, ever-present conflict. Ultimately, I realized that the best way was to develop understanding and compassion, to realize that if someone does me wrong that they may potentially do so out great suffering and false perception in their life.

The intermittent meditations and mindfulness exercises helped me stop stress from mounting through the course of the day, which caused a series of stress-related symptoms. I can only imagine where I would have ended up had I not started this practice.

As soon as I realized that I was getting results, I didn't stop there and kept practicing, I was determined to have lasting results and actually am committed to practicing 'so long as I live' as overly emotional as it sounds, but honestly, I feel I have caused myself enough suffering through an untrained mind and am ready for a change.

One of the most positive changes is work performance - apart from understanding and compassion for instead of anger and frustration at colleagues. Mindfulness training enhanced my mental performance significantly. I was getting very difficult projects done faster, with fewer errors and with greater depth of understanding. Week for week my resilience at work is increasing and I am certain that this will result in the success I have been after all this time. At the same time though I have realized the success is already present that is family, friends, one's one health and peace of mind, which simply can't be bought and are much more precious that any superficial undertaking. Nonetheless, I am definitely not quitting my job, but instead continuing to enjoy all these things and to live with more balance.

I've always been interested in increasing my performance, which potentially my have taken me to the edge of burnout as I pushed too hard, but the books I read never manager to transform my work experience or life for that matter. This book has helped me turn around an increasingly hopeless situation and do a lot to contribute to better health and peace of mind. If would recommend it to anyone dealing with stress, conflict and dissatisfaction action work - sticking to the exercises on a daily (multi-day) basis really helped me make impressive progress physically, mentally, privately and professional. Like everything, the principles in this book need time to take effect, but I found them to be well worth it considering that I have tried for years to resolve these issues and this book helped make real progress within the space of weeks.

Consistent Hanh 6. Mai 2013
Von tc1218 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love Hanh. I have loved many of his books. I hope this one would have a little more about making peace with difficulties at work or a job you don't like. I don't disagree with him- it is mainly what you think about it, but those of us who have a hard time getting there could use some beginner tips.
