Zen and the Art of Making a Living in the Post-modern World Summary

Zen and the Art of Making a Living in the Post-modern World: Career Guide for Dharma Bums, Social Activists and Reformed Yuppies by Laurence G. Boldt

This is more than a book about getting a job. It's about people who want to express their talents in a meaningful way that serves others. In Part One, a vision of new possibilities in work begins to take shape in images of poetry, mythology and art, as well as traditional Zen teachings. For Bold, everyone is the artist of his or her life. Part Two guides the reader through the practical action steps to finding and fulfilling one's life work. It offers information on many of the traditional career planning books (resuming writing, interview preparation, etc), as well as information not generally found in career guides, including how to start your own business, how to manage multiple careers and how to love what you're doing until you're doing what you love.

Table of Contents

Prologue: the art of life's work: the Tao of work; or, creative self expression; zen at work; or, poetry in motion; myth at work; or, crafting the story of your life; the world calls for the post-modern (blissful) hero. Part 1 The quest for life's work: the quest for your best - vision questing, clarifying values, pointing to purpose, targeting talents, marking mission objectives, what if you still don't know?. Part 2 The game of life's work: playing the game - winners, losers, and choosers - your new career - getting a picture, reality testing, evaluation - no or go?. Part 3 The battle for life's work: winning in the marketplace - taking it to the street - choosing your marketing strategy, sailing the entrepreneurship, wielding the free-lance, crafting the nonprofit foundation, landing the right job, street smarts. Part 4 The school of life's work: learning to change - the old boy and the student-sage - getting there - transition strategies, training thrills - knowledge and skills, creating the self-image you need to succeed, help! - enlisting support, loving what you do ('til you are doing what you love). Appendix A: Economics - scar-city or mutual support system?. Appendix B: volunteering. Appendix C: long-term planning for zealots, fanatics, and eager beavers.
