Work from the Inside Out: Seven Steps to Loving What You Do by Nancy O'Hara

Everyone hopes for a rewarding and fulfilling career but the day-to-day reality can be just the opposite. The routine of our jobs, office politics and problematic projects can often be the cause of frustration, worry and disappointment. The quest to find personal satisfaction, much less pride in our work, can be daunting.

It doesn’t have to be that way. According to Nancy O’Hara, we can find meaning in our jobs—but the first thing we have to do is look within ourselves. Grounded in principles of Zen Buddhism and full of real-life stories, WORK FROM THE INSIDE OUT presents a simple plan to reclaim your job and your life—and ultimately find the ability to truly love what you do.

About the Author

Nancy O’Hara was drawn to Zen Buddhism in the mid-1980s after her father died and found solace there in the profound stillness of silent meditation. After living in a Zen Monastery in the early nineties, Nancy became even more dedicated to her practice and passionate about sharing with others the mindful approach to living that the monks had taught her. Since before her first book, Find a Quiet Corner, was published in 1995, she has been conducting workshops and retreats for seekers interested in Buddhist teachings through a Western-mind filter.
Nancy spent more than twenty years in the corporate arena working for both large and small firms and left that world in the mid-1990s to venture out on her own. Those years spent inside corporate America have given Nancy a keen insight into the challenges we all face every day on the job and the importance of balancing mind and body, soul and spirit. With one foot firmly planted in the West and the other in the East, Nancy O’Hara brings to us a rich and powerful message laced with simplicity and compassion.
Currently a full-time author and teacher, Nancy shares her unique approach to a peaceful life through her Zen Life Coaching practice, meditation classes, workshops, retreats and corporate seminars. Nancy continues to live in New York City, rather than on the top of a mountain waiting for enlightenment, because she believes the truth is to be found in the daily rituals of our ordinary lives.

Too much writing about how to breathe. Not a helpful book. Should be sold as a meditation book. Ridiculous to not have expectations or desires. She says "not to worry" about future. Exactly what is opposite of not worry? She downplays hope and faith. Many times she is too vague.
