HOW TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE AND YOUR JOB


HOW TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE AND YOUR JOB

DALE CARNEGIE    Book Number: 86969    Product format: Paperback

A distillation of wisdom from Carnegie's two blockbusting lifestyle books How to Win Friends and Influence People and How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, this snappy little paperback focuses on the task of getting people on your side. There is no need to have enemies, and with the right techniques you can have productive, harmonious relationships in your life and your job. Numerous experiments on both animals and humans have shown that rewarding good behaviour is much more effective than punishing bad. Even the gangsters in New York's notorious Sing Sing prison regarded themselves as kindly men with a heart of gold. Case histories from the business world illustrate the author's theories: for instance, a man goes into a bank to open an account but is reluctant to reveal his personal circumstances. Instead of invoking the rules, the bank manager sympathises but explains it's necessary so that in the event of his death his heirs can inherit without court cases. The technique is dubbed the "Socrates Secret" and the key is to keep saying yes, not no. A contractor making a bid for business can ask the advice of a client rather than lay down the law about how it should be done, and in your personal life, acting "as if" you are happy can help to create the mental habit of happiness. 161pp, paperback.
