Inspiring and thought provoking
on 6 June 2014
When I started out in my career, I was full of energy, ambition and very clear about who I was and how I wanted to be. Over the years and having spent time in many different jobs, I look back and wish it felt now just like it did then.
The truth is it can do. The trouble is our work often takes us over and we become a different version of ourselves.
Free! is a really powerful reminder of how important it is to be true to who we are. If we can be free to be ourselves then we will be happier at work and our employers will benefit. We are more productive, more creative and make a positive impact on those we work with. The book isn't just speculation but built on science and solid research which demonstrates that being happy at work is not just a nice to have but and essential ingredient of success.
Free! is essentially a collection of tips and reminders to help us be true to ourselves. We have to take responsibility for our own futures so if something isn't right fix it!
I love the fact that you can slip this in your pocket and dip in randomly whenever you feel like it. It is a fabulous portable source of stimulus. I would recommend this to anyone who isn't 100% happy in their working life.
