"The Inner Game" techniques work in work,
This review is from: The Inner Game of Work (Hardcover)
Years ago in an art class, I overheard a very pregnant woman extolling the benefits she gained from reading "The Inner Game of Tennis" and how she was applying what she learned. I didn't play tennis (still don't), but couldn't resist buying and reading a copy - I, too, gained from it.
Now, years later, I stumbled on "The Inner Game of Work" and rediscovered the magic of the inner game principles. After practicing a few of the very tangible and specific techniques outlined in this book, I am exploring one option it continually reminds me that I've always had - to employ my own inner resources to enjoy whatever it is that I do.
If you are interested in maximizing enjoyment at work (no matter what it is you actually "do" - from management to maintenance engineer and anywhere in between), this is the definitive "must have" reference book that will redefine the way you think about work. Thank you, Tim Gallwey, for shedding light in an area we all presuppose should be, at best, a normal daily grind, and pointing out the real possibility of breaking out of those boundaries.
