“Happiness And Joy in Work”

Happiness and Joy in Work: Preparing for Your Future by Ruth Schimel PhD is a unique guide for becoming expert about the future of your own work. During these times of dynamic, accelerating change, it provides guidance customized for individual readers.  You’ll see how to imagine, express, and connect with what you want and need.  Use it to integrate your potential, interests, and abilities to form strategies and directions that suit you better now and for new situations. The holistic design also shows ways to collaborate and engage with others; this includes work and peer groups, communities, government, business, and nonprofit organizations.

The graphic above reveals how the book’s three themes join to promote your progress as well as happiness and joy in work:

  • Lifelong Learning: connecting goals, interests, information, and experiences for continuing benefit and meaning
  • Soft Skills: using the power of transferable, soft skills for effectiveness and success, as you define it, in a variety of situations
  • Technology: anticipating, influencing, and participating in current and emerging technological advances

Drawing on a range of topics from the humanities and sciences, Happiness and Joy in Work: Preparing for Your Future provides wide horizons and choices for work and learning.  Enjoyable ways to expand your skills and abilities include telling stories, coloring images, and sketching. Expect to spark your curiosity and creativity as well as to strengthen your intuition with optimism and realism.  You’ll also get advice to deal with personal and professional blocks and difficulties that understandably generate discomfort, fear, or anxiety, especially during these times of rapid change.

The tools and inspiration throughout the book ease your continuing action. Links and end  notes you choose to explore will deepen understanding, expertise, and knowledge in practical, accessible ways.

“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.”
