about

Reap the rewards of a job well - and happily - doneEven in a tight economy, job satisfaction isn't a luxury; fulfilled, happy employees are productive, innovative, and loyal. And workplace fulfillment spills over into happier families and better communities. Jim Donovan, a small-business owner, consultant, and speaker, has worked with employees and employers for twenty-five years. In that time he has tested and honed these shift-producing strategies on everything from managing time, making decisions, and marking milestones to breaking patterns, bouncing back, and becoming exceptional. Each tip's method and rationale are clearly explained. Real workplace vignettes demonstrate the benefits and results that can be gleaned from simple shifts and actions. These tools will empower you with the knowledge that no matter the circumstance, you can think, act, and feel in ways that create purpose, success, and, yes, happiness.

Editorial Reviews

'Drink in a chapter of this book every morning along with your cup of coffee to get your day and your life going. Jim Donovan has distilled the best tools from the top motivational speakers and put them in an easy, 'Hey, I can do this!' format. It's like having a mentor on your shoulder showing you how to improve your life every day.'-Patti Wood, motivational speaker and author ofSNAP: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language & Charisma'This book isnot the result of Donovan's academic pursuit of a more fulfilling life. He has struggled through every discovery himself. Each of the 60 ideas has been personally tested and found useful by him. He tells us that our personal dreams don't have to be at odds with our nine-to-five work life. He says that we already know what's best for us and that it is our responsibility to claim it. His ideas are tools which he offers us to help us empower ourselves. Each of the 60 techniques is spelled out in two or three realistic, upbeat pages. The book can be used as thought-for-the-day meditations or as a step-by-step manual. In addition to suggestions for defining goals, breaking bad habits, and managing time, there are discussions about aligning goals with values and adding inspiration to action. Let customers know that this is a happy, easy-to-read treatise which really can change their lives.'-Anna Jedrziewski,Retailing InsightPraise for Jim Donovan'sHandbook to a Happier Life:Great! . . . Should be a part of everyone's self-help library."-Jack Canfield, coauthor ofChicken Soup for the Soul "
