Office Zen is about how to reduce stress and be more productive at work. The book mentions Zen and Buddhism, but doesn’t focus on any religion. Its main point is to help people find happiness in their work lives.
I really like the simple design and minimalist theme of the ebook . Office Zen keeps it short, simple, and to the point. It’s basically a guide to help you find your way to a more relaxed and stress free life while working in the modern office.
I’ve been reading his blog for a few months now and really like what he has to say. This book pulls everything together nicely and makes for an easy read. It’s a self help guide, but reads like a conversation between you and the author.
The writing is casual and honest. There are no complex or life changing rules to follow. Kole doesn’t go on for hundreds of pages talking about the same concepts repeatedly like some other ebooks. He just discusses a few simple steps to a happier life.
Kole gives tips on avoiding office drama, removing distractions, single-tasking, meditation, and other techniques for leading a stress free work life. He hits on many of the same ideas that I’ve been thinking about for awhile.
Anyone who feels stressed about work, bored at the office, or tired of the daily grind should check this book out. Even if you don’t feel stressed, take the time to read this book, you might find something helpful.
