“There is always a choice about the way you do your work, even if there is not a choice about the work itself.” —Fish!
There’s something to be said for writing with energy. I’m just not sure the authors delivered much more in this short text. Having the right energy—that fun, go get them attitude—makes a substantial difference in any workplace. That’s where this text can help. If you find yourself in a toxic work environment or surrounded by toxic co-workers, you just may find some relief in this tiny parable.
Though, I can’t say I was a huge fan, I would share book with others. I think it fills a very smart niche in the workplace where middle management and mid-level workers converge in the corporate doldrums.
If you need an easy read to give you some fresh perspective on how you can choose to thrive or wallow in the workplace, then this is the book for you. It’s both highly approachable and practical. So, take a break in the office, pull out this booklet and enjoy.
