Book Description

Readable in fifty-eight minutes: Traditional Eastern wisdom and real-life business experience come together in this brief and practical guide, which offers a step-by-step plan that will help readers adopt a more successful way of working and living.

KARMIC MANAGEMENT is a little book with a revolutionary message. It turns traditional business mentality on its head by stating simply that helping others become successful—suppliers, customers, even competitors—is the real key to success in life as well as in business.

Drawing from their own entrepreneurial experiences, the authors explain how, in eight basics steps that take less than one hour in total, readers can learn to apply KARMIC MANAGEMENT to meet goals, both personal and professional. Each lesson opens with a quotation from a Buddhist text and explains how it applies to life and work in the twenty-first century. The authors show readers how to identify the things that aren’t working for them, discover their most valuable assets, and use their new insights to improve the lives of others. To-do lists throughout the book provide practical tools and exercises, and real-life examples highlight the power of KARMIC MANAGEMENT to make dreams come true.

From the Hardcover edition.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Billed as the sequel to the best-selling The Diamond Cutter, this slim volume lays out its Eight Rules of Karmic Management, a business philosophy predicated upon helping karmic business partners—co-workers, customers and suppliers, the world—succeed. With brief testimonials from hip-hop entrepreneur Russell Simmons and advertising executive Linda Kaplan Thaler, the guide lays out a mishmash of Eastern religions and such New Age strategies as visualizing future endeavors with a 100% success rate. Much of the book yields more puzzlement than enlightenment: the authors offer unfocused personal anecdotes, and various contradictory statements create further confusion (e.g., an assertion that the method always works is followed by the qualifying If it works, then you have a friend for life in KM). Also befuddling (and troubling) in a treatise espousing altruism toward competitors is praise for retailing giant Wal-Mart, whose evisceration tactics against rivals are widely documented. (Sept. 1)

I read this book in an hour, and followed all the directions laid out in the book. I re-read the book again, and have continued to follow the advices. My business and financial situation have improved immensely, not to mention so have my personal relationships just by using the principles and examples laid out in this book. I am in the process of reading the author's other book the Diamond Cutter. I loved this book and now give it as gifts to my other entrepreneur or friends looking to change their life. I feel that these books should be read and then re-read, so much wisdom in here!

3.0 out of 5 stars not worth it September 3, 2014
By valeria
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The concept itself is beautiful but it is not practical to invest all your time and effort in helping the provider or the employee and then sit and wait for the world to throw you a bone. There is no empirical truth on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can you measure cause and effect? April 7, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Karma does work just not in a way that can be scientifically measured. Cause and effect leaves no footprints. It is not a religion although it does involve the soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars THANK YOU! November 10, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book and liked it so much that I bought the Diamond Cutter right after that. Karmic Management is very practical too. Its very simply written, so you can apply the ideas immediately in your life. Its not a big science here. If you want something in life, just give it to someone first and then you'll get after that. The great thing is that you do not have to give it in equal value; the intention is what it counts - it all works subconsciously; that's the beauty of it.

What I like the most is that when you give something to somebody, I feel love...I feel connection with that person. So I kind of forget that I may get something in the future. Just giving is enough. Wonderful book. Get it and change your life.

I didn't realise how responsible I was for the 'unpredictable' nature of my life and business until I read this book. But what sat me back on my heels was the revelation that things are both predictable and capable of real, systematic and enduring change, for the better! By applying the exercises and practices, the knots and blockages are unwinding, things are truly so much on the up, I have to pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming. Geshe Michael Roach and friends are modern unique sages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Simple? July 12, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Can something be too simple? Yes, if it purports to tell the whole picture but leaves out important points. I do not think that is the case here. This book simplifies and makes plain a step-by-step process for success. I plan to give it a try. I know I already feel better just committing to put it in practice. I have always believed the tenants in this book, now I have a clear and specific way to apply them.
