I finished this a few hours ago and wrote down my first thoughts. I was reluctant to criticise Cutler because I felt any criticism would be too close to projection. But I reflected on that and realised that however true that may be, I think it's important to mention why this title isn't on the list of books I'd recommend to people interested in the thoughts of the Dalai Lama, or in finding a way to be happy at work with his help.Before I start this, I want to say that I'm sure this book can be h [...]

This book was inspiring, so much so that I read it twice. The comments of the Dalai Lama on happiness at work are relevant and based on common sense and spirituality. One idea is that you have freedom to choose how you approach your career and your co-workers, although other aspects may be beyond your control Attitude and balance are also key along with finding your purpose at work. It can be as simple as smiling at people and offering encouragement. Lastly, look at problems both job and life re [...]

This helped me to deal with a situation at work of being bullied by a co-worker. I also shared some of the principals with middle and high school students I work with, specifically the concept of working for the money vs. career aspirations/fame vs. a calling; that one must follow a calling to be truly happy and can combined with the other factors but not excluded.

Quotes to remember:“He reminds us that if we can change some of the external conditions at the workplace that contribute to our dissatisfaction, we certainly should. If not, although it is not always easy or quick, it is still possible to be happy at work through reshaping our attitudes and outlook, through inner training.”Look at a tense situation as a way to improve yourself. Stay calm and react with dignity. “Our attitudes about money are more important than the amount we make. As alway [...]

So, I wanted to read a book by the Dalai Lama. I don't even know why I picked it; there are quite a few at our store and I think I just liked the introduction. In any case, this was the first book by the Dalai Lama I read (or maybe I should say "read and finished", because I remember borrowing some of books from our local library when I was still at school, but I never was able to finish them because I found them rather difficult to read). Technically (and factually) saying that this book is "by [...]

This seemed like the perfect book to pick up and read. I have deep respect for The Dalai Lama and I really needed some advice on how to be happier at work.I used to really love my job. It was exciting, for the most part, and every day usually held something new and challenging in store. Nowadays, it's not like that. There's a distinct vibe of us vs. them in most cases, IT vs. Accountants. Some of the financial folk chose to think that anyone can program so they'll just take care of what they wan [...]

This book leaned heavily toward the experiences of upper class western industrial workers. Many examples seemed to be from corporate ladder climbers. The brief mention of working class women (who work in a supermarket) critiqued their attitude toward the customer/author whom they were serving. It criticized one worker's attitude and demeanor and how it affected the author/customer negatively, without giving space for a larger social analysis of the situation. I want to read the book written by t [...]

I really enjoyed reading the Dalai Lama's perspective. However, I feel that he just has no concept of what it is like to live and work in the Western world. He never has, of course, so it is hard for me to find what he says helpful in any practical sort of way.

How do we stay happy at work? In our fast-paced world when work seeps into every aspect of our lives, we are seeing more and more people that are unhappy with work or that have little satisfaction in their jobs. If we aren't happy or satisfied with what we spend more than half our lives doing, what does this say about us as individuals? From learning to get along with the people we work with and going through periods of dissatisfaction and disappointment with work to dealing with what motivates [...]

Frankly, I was sort of disappointed with the contents of this book. Although the Dalai Lama does rationalize how Buddhist tenets can help deal with frustration at work, the author's rhetoric is basically built upon him asking questions that I considered to be simple logic rather than spiritual direction. By delivering to the holy man a list of pre-determined questions and agreeing on the constrictions and assumptions in the examples, the Dalai Lama gives his insight into how he would feel or act [...]

While appreciating the thoughts of the Dalai Lama and finding some helpful input regarding job satisfaction, I was still left wondering the steps to find a better feeling regarding one's work. The states of mind naturally are important. Attitude we know is critical to success and happiness; however in what way can a person find the 'calling' or the work that would fit us in such a satisfactory way that happiness at work is possible. Identifying sources of dissatisfaction in work was covered in t [...]

To say this book is written by the Dalai Lama is an exaggeration. The author interviews and I’m sure paraphrased him. But paraphrasing causes change in meaning and also sounds unnatural. It felt meaningless to me. I put the book away when he describe how he realized as an art student that art helped no one. So he became a doctor. As a side note he said he now respects and appreciates the arts. Well. If he doesn’t understand how essential the arts are to the existence of humanity then he didn [...]

Refreshingly practical genius This book deals with the real and infinitely complex issues of our work lives, relationships and situations. The Dalai Lama doesn't pretend to have all the answers or experience of every situation. This is very refreshing and lends a greater value to his advice. Which, in his unique style, begins with developing a greater clearer understanding of ourselves and our individual skills. This in turn helps us to better relate to our environment and the individuals around [...]

This book was picked as a book discussion book so I hadn't read anything about it. It wasn't what I expected. I thought "Happiness at Work" as in the verb "to work", when it is really about "work", the noun, as in place of employment. That being said, a little discourse on Right Livelihood couldn't have come at a better time for me. Sometimes life speaks to you. Well done, as the Dalai Lama always is.

Po pierwsze warto przeczytać co Dalajlama ma do powiedzenia. Warto znać jego poglądy. Tym ciekawiej kiedy wypowiada się o pracy, pracy, której w takim wymiarze jak inni ludzie, nigdy nie zazna. Jest to zupełnie świeże spojrzenie i może być inspirujące.

After much success with his first book in collaboration with the Dalai Lama, The Art of Happiness, Howard Cutler decided to write another book. In this book Cutler wanted to explore some ideas and topics not touched upon in the first one. Namely, since work takes up an overwhelming amount of the day for most people, how can we find happiness at work? After all, most of us cannot sit around all day in a cave without venturing out into the real world. If we have no practical way to take our spirit [...]

It's a short book and yet the snippets of dialog with the Dalai Lama show the striking similarity between his beliefs about work and what recent studies show (e.g. The importance and impact of "job crafting").

There are several reasons for me to dislike this book so I'll do my best to keep it short.Firstly, I read it in the hopes of finding any kind of an answer to my current job situation. I did not find any. Also, it was apparent from the beginning I wasn't going to. Dalailama says on several occasions in the book that he hasn't got an answer to a question or that the question he is asked needs to be viewed from the person's view whom it concerns.He also gave vast amounts of answers I already knew m [...]

The book took me quite a while to get through. Part of it was my own distraction with other books, but another part was the fact I didn't find this book quite as enlightening and enthralling as plain old Art of Happiness was. That book I could barely put down. If I did it was to ponder what I'd just read and let it sink in. I could genuinely relate to the material and found the compiling of the meetings to be very well done.Art of Happiness at Work didn't have quite the same punch for me. Part o [...]

The Art of Happiness at Work comes from a series of conversations between the author and the Dalai Lama. I am aware that the Dalai Lama shares credit for the book, but the format of the book makes it clear that the Dalai Lama did not do much writing of the book. However, I don't blame the Howard Cutler or the Dalai Lama for this misrepresentation.I found that the format of the book worked well for its intent. Cutler includes his own dialog with the Dalai Lama's which gives the book an intimate f [...]

More useful advice from The Dalai Lama! I read The Art of Happiness years ago and if you have not, read that one first. This book finds Dr. Cutler talking with His Holiness again, specifically about being happy at work. Ever the pragmatist the Dalai Lama admits that not everyone can have a job they love. So his advice focusing on having a positive attitude and thinking about how your work, even if it seems mundane and paltry, can indeed do good. One of his examples is a working on an assembly li [...]

Reading this book, I'm hoping to find my happiness at work. If you are looking for an answer, this book does not provide you with an explicit answer. Rather, it opens up to various perspectives of finding meaning in your work and valuing your work. I like the way he shared about 3 different ways of perceiving your work: 1) do you see your work as a job that provides your financial needs; 2) do you see your work as a career for progression though pay may not be that good; 3) do you see your work [...]

all the dalai lama books are quick, cheap therapy for when you're feeling depressed and sad. i flew through this book when i was unsure about work and my career and the path i wanted to pursue. it immediately put things in perspective and i found myself feeling better about things so i stopped reading it. ha. the things he says are obvious and rational. we (westerns, first world countries) put too much emphasis on what we do for a living and how it need not be where we derive our happiness from.

Mostly fluff. Maybe it was the format of the book that didn't do it for me. The entire book is a series of conversations that the author has with the Dalai Lama on the topic of work. This style gave it a bit of an unprofessional feel. Most of the dialog was not relevant or useful, hence fluff. Too much time was spent trying to explain modern work office problems to someone that has not worked in an office.While I have not yet read the original, Art of Happiness, I can imagine what it covers base [...]

The narrative takes the form of a discussion between Cutler and the Dalai Lama on the nature of finding satisfaction in one's occupation. The content is great and provoked a lot of thought for myself; I also found that my attitude toward work was greatly improved on the days that I listened to this on my way there and back. A lot of their postulations came down to that: simply adjusting your individual expectations and attitude toward your work, as well as weighing your values and how they corre [...]
