What if you could take the
radical simplicity and mythic archetypes found in Zen tradition and apply them
to your career? When work sends you disruptions, what if you could take
up the Sword of Present Concentration to find the focus you need?
Or when work presents a problem, what if you could Ride the Windhorse of
Creative Aggression to find its clever solution? In this two-part
series we will be using Laurence Boldt’s classic Zen and the Art of Making a
Living: A Practical Guide to Creative Career Design to take a clear-eyed
look at the work we do and courageously strip away the unnecessary.
Whether you are working for an organization, running your own business or
wielding the “free-lance”, you will find worksheets, quotes of wisdom and
interactive exercises that are sure to bring fresh perspective and vital energy
to the sacred work you do.
