Seeking the Calm in the Storm free pdf Feel like life's out of control? You're not alone. We're all facing a world of unrelenting, accelerating turbulence -- with new technology subjecting us to constant, non-stop demands, and no time to reflect on what really matters most. Even worse, in the wake of 9/11, we're living with powerful new dangers and uncertainties about our society and our futures. In this book, social psychologist and business consultant Dr. Judith Bardwick helps us understand what's really happening -- and offers a practical plan for retaking control, improving our effectiveness, and regaining our sense of well-being. One by one, she considers all the factors that make contemporary life and work so stressful, including the requirement to live at "Web speed," the growing complexity and ubiquity of communications technology, and the world's growing disregard for privacy. Next, she offers a step-by-step plan for taking control. Discover how to convert vague anxieties into specific, solvable problems- establish realistic priorities and reduce overload- and identify manageable risks and challenges that can be engaged and overcome.Understand your personal goals and workstyles more clearly, so you can achieve a better fit with your organization -- or find an organization that fits you better. Manage technology instead of letting it manage you- think more clearly about the changes you initiate- and, above all, learn to bring balance and satisfaction back into your life.
