Bob Miglani provides a simple philosophy to fight the stress and uncertainty of corporate life: Accept it and move along. He illustrates relinquishing control and giving up over analysis with examples from his experiences in India, where he lives. The book excels in explaining how to avoid exhausting yourself on a fruitless quest for control, but it falls short when it suggests that most Indians believe the same things. India is a nation of many beliefs, cultures and contradictions. While the book reflects some aspects of Hindu culture, it is not a guide to understanding India as a whole. getAbstract recommends Miglani’s advice to managers and students who seek a more relaxed perspective on management and life.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to accept and enjoy uncertainty,
- What three principles will help you abandon your futile quest for control, and
- How the lives of ordinary Indians can teach you to stop worrying and start living.
