Description
Why does a CEO who has already made hundreds of millions of dollars continue to work? Why does a rock star who has made a bundle continue to tour? Why do retirees' miss work as soon as they stop doing it? Why do we all wrestle with our life's work and talk about it incessantly? The thing about work is that we love it, we hate it, we need it, we miss it, we measure ourselves by it, we judge others by it-we are addicted to it. Work often defines us and fulfills us. Yet, today's rapidly changing workplace environment is stressful and confusing to deal with. In The Thing About Work, Richard Moran takes a ground-level perspective on what is happening at work and how to thrive in the new professional world. Through funny, prescriptive vignettes and short essays, Moran finds the "white space" in the company manual-those issues that you encounter every day at work but which are not covered in employee training. He uses hilarious and true stories from his own life and others' to answer questions like, "Should you take your dog to work?" and "How late is late?" and "What is that foreign object growing in the refrigerator?" This very contemporary view of work will prove invaluable for the modern employee.
