I am more than excited and humbled to introduce you very special 1st guest ever to our “Super Cool Household”.
Prof. Srikumar Rao
I am honored that SCG is among first online communities in the world, which will have the opportunity to find out more about just released (2nd April 2010) book by Srikumar Rao – Happiness at Work.
5 Interview Questions have been answered by Srikumar himself, exclusively for SCG community.
How Super Cool is that? 😉
The basic topics I cover are the same, but I go much deeper in many instances. For example, in Are You Ready To Succeed I point out that we can benefit from not labeling anything that happens to us as a “bad” thing.In Happiness at Work I not only describe exactly why this is so but also show you methods by which you can avoid such labeling.
In Happiness at Work I show how many mental models we use that are completely dysfunctional and what to do about them. I demonstrate that our suffering comes from the drama we create between our ears and how we can avoid doing this.
2) What was the main drive and urge for writing your new book?
I get a better feel each day about what really troubles people in this new era with rampant uncertainty in many areas including finances, career and relationships. I can’t provide answers but I definitely can provide a framework that will help each person generate his/her own answers to these pressing problems. So I wanted to do that in a simple and highly effective manner.
If you read Happiness at Work and sincerely do the exercises in the book, your life WILL be transformed, and vastly for the better. The wisdom in it has come from great masters and that is how and why I can state this so unequivocally.
3) Why should Super Cool Gang-ers pick up your new book?
Anyone interested in leading a fully engaged, joyous life should read this book. And Super Cool Gang-ers are more active in this quest than most others – so they should really rush to get it!!
4) Is your new book only for people who are employed? What about students, self-employed freelancers or entrepreneurs?
The book is of EVERYONE! Entrepreneurs can benefit hugely both in terms of lessening stress in their lives and to become better leaders. The exercises in the book will make them vastly more effective.
5) What would be one sentence message you would share with SCG-ers, which they could stick on the wall in their rooms?
You CAN create a life where every day is a blast!! Do not ever settle for anything else!!!
Dear Srikumar, thank you so much for your time and expressed trust.
Thank you for choosing to share your insights about your new book with Super Cool Gang!
Many happy readers!
I have no doubt that SCG-ers will be among them, too.
