Life Hack for Getting Suddenly Awesome: Get a Job

best-books-for-mystics-19

Having a good career is one of the best things in the world, and one of the healthiest.

The reasons are obvious: first, it gives you money. (More about that later.) Second, it gives you intellectual stimulation (more about that one later, too). And, lastly: a good career gives you an ongoing sense of accomplishment.

And without those things, I don’t think I’d be happy.

And I’m not the only one. Recently, some psychologists looking into the subject of happiness have found the same thing. People overestimate the amount of enjoyment they will receive from having “free time,” they say. As it turns out, we are much happier when we are being productive.

As it turns out, people don’t really like being lazy.

It’s spirituality for the rest of us.

Eckhart Tolle is awesome. So are Byron Katie and all those Buddhist monks we hear about. Why, then, doesn’t their advice immediately solve all our most pressing spiritual problems?

Why are their results so difficult to replicate?

You’re Getting Closer and The Power of Acceptance. Get them for an uplifting price on Amazon.

  1. Money has come to mean less and less to me since my stroke. I would love to have a lot, but it’s okay as it is for now. But, you are correct; I enjoy being productive. My blog does well and there are other things I do that give me purpose and make me feel as thought I am doing things on this old world and in this life given to me.
