Happiness at Work

Happiness at Work

Srikumar Rao

Overview

Many of us feel stuck in our current positions. Work can feel more draining than energizing, and the passion we once had seems to have evaporated. These feelings can affect the rest of our lives as well. Happiness at Work can help us rediscover the spark.

A former business school professor, Dr. Srikumar Rao founded the Rao Institute, dedicated to unlocking personal mastery. In Happiness at Work, Rao offers up sage advice on achieving workplace happiness, but also on leading a more fulfilled life overall.

Drawing from Buddhist concepts, Rao focuses on finding inner peace, becoming detached from outcomes, and taking an overhead view of things. Rao uses engaging short stories to illustrate his points and concludes each lesson with practical exercises. By following his advice, we can restore joy to our lives and feel a renewed sense of purpose.

"Passion does not exist in the job. It exists in you – and if you cannot ignite it within yourself right where you are now, you will never find it outside yourself."
