Who wants to be miserable at work 40 hours a week or to view their job as just a means to a paycheck? Work should be fun, challenging and inspiring; and we each have the power to change our workplace environment beginning with ourselves, regardless of the position we are currently in.

"Most people spend their entire lives in unquestioned routines, never hearing the calling of how great they could be if only they refocused on making a profound difference through their work--no matter what they do.

This book is a gloss-over of concepts that have been covered much more effectively in other books. It offers no concrete evidence or metrics to prove the success of culture-building programs or the effects on a companies bottom line. (Although the book does try to vaguely describe large companies in such-and-such industry who realized a 2000% increase in profits just 5 minutes after their hoopla team met for the first time, and other such unfounded claims. Like many of these quick-read leadershi ...more

Okay, I'm giving this three stars because it's a very upbeat book, with a positive message. It's inspiring, and it did rather make me want to be a better employee. But...

It just plain doesn't fit my situation. It's ideally suited for someone in a medium to large company, and probably of more use to someone who's fairly high up the ladder, though some of the advice it intended for people in the lower ranks. For me... well, there are only 7 people where I work - that's including myself and the thr

I wanted to like this book, and it has some great thoughts about how someone should conduct herself while grinding through the work week. Ultimately, though, this book is just too theoretical to be either worthwhile or interesting. There is no data and conversations in the book are laughable. That's to say nothing of the parable of the business owner who wouldn't take his customers' advice, and wound up divorced four times, filing for bankruptcy three times, and dying at the age of 65 while livi ...more

I thought this book was great for individuals - very down to earth, very practical, very in-your-face.

I like it less for business application. I think it's next to impossible to change people unless they choose to change - the only solution advocated here is to fire or suggest resignation to those who won't get on board.

Great if you don't fear getting sued or aren't working with a union.

Anyhow - powerful personal message about taking control of your own life and stop blaming others.

I love Mondays! Motivating!

What a refreshing take on management with a smile and a wink. More managers should adapt this positive approach to the week. It is okay to be happy and positive at work.

Didn't check it out, just sat in the library and read it. The inside cover said.. "...is about loving what you're doing and creating massive results."

Overall a good book. Chapter on victimhood was especially appropriate because of one that I am working with now.

Good on theory but light on implementation details. Definitely worth a read.
