in work and play.
Our worlds can be chaotic.
At home or at work, we can have many demands placed on us. Meeting our responsibilities can leave us with little room for our own desires and goals. Particularly in our tech-filled world, we can easily be hit from multiple directions. How can we ever find calm? How can we ever pursue our own goals?
Finding a way to pursue our dreams with any peaceful focus might seem a myth.
But it is possible.
When you learn to guide your attention well, you can find a calm and creative focus, at work or at home. Even in chaos, you can have a way to anchor yourself and make solid decisions to move forward and build your life and dreams.
Zen & The Art of Work gives you the exercises to help you on that path…

Workflow Mastery takes a step back to study the workflow’s entirety. Workflow Mastery is a deep dive into what it takes to develop mastery and meaningful work. It describes, at both practical and psychological depth, how vision develops, how we can organize meaningfully, and ultimately how we can create the conditions for our work and play. The material is structured so you can decide where and how to improve your individual workflow to whatever degree you may wish. It, too, builds from the very basics up through the advanced.
