    Changed my attitude toward my job!

    Love this book! It has helped me change my attitude toward my work. I love the concept of "Idiot Compassion". Now, more often than not, I am able to reflect on one of the many "slogans" in the book which helps me reframe my attitude and my actions. I have the Nook version for home and keep the paperback version in my office.

    Awake at Work Brings Peace

    I read and re-read Awake at Work often. Yesterday, I re-read a chapter about the silence of fear. Carroll posits that fear is powerful because we experience it in silence. After making an embarrassing mistake at work, I remembered what I had read and decided to address the mistake openly. Before remembering what I read and making the decision to be open I was seriously considered attempting to cover up my mistake. Because of the book I found acting with integrity a little easier.

    A Mind Changing Book

    Not a self help, not a management style book. You don't even have to read this cover to cover. Just open it to any page on any day and read. It will change the way you THINK about work as it relates to your life. I find I go back to it over and over when I am frustrated or feeling lost in the chaos of work. A reminder of fundamental principles of life that apply to work as well as all aspects of living.
