This book offers a number of ground rules for being successful at work, based on Eastern philosophies and martial arts, at the heart of which lies the right balance between reason and intuition. Concepts such as efficiency, the overall picture, proactive behaviour, breathing, the here and now, peace, freeing yourself of hindrances and perceiving what is true are the underlying principles of the classic Eastern martial arts, but they can also be directly applied to modern (business)life. The ground rules in this book are all you need to teach yourself to use your own strength to find the right answer to any situation in this constantly changing world and to be able to enjoy your work more, with less stress and strain. They lead to inner peace and give an insight into the overall picture. Achieving success no longer requires an effort - instead it becomes a state of being.
