(WTNH)– Author Debra Snyder talks about her new book “Ignite CALM: Achieving Bliss in Your Work.”
The advice and practical guidance in the book is for those who want to improve their lives and take positive action to attain success not just at work but in all aspects of daily living. Snyder says, “we can’t expect to live happy lives if we’re miserable at work. Within us, we each have the power to create working lives that are both pleasant for us and profitable for our employers. It’s up to us to make changes, and those changes begin in our own hearts and actions.”
CALM = Creativity, Authenticity, Luminosity, and Mindfulness.
“Four questions connect people to their soul’s wisdom,” Snyder explains. “To ignite CALM, ask yourself these four essential questions and be absolutely honest in your answers.”
Creativity: Have I looked at this situation creatively?
Authenticity: Am I being true to my personal values and goals?
Luminosity: Am I bringing the best of me to this issue?
Mindfulness: How does this situation affect my life and others?
“This technique gets us into our best place, so we can see a situation clearly without distraction,” she continues. These four questions are the heart of the CALM approach – all you need to get the internal fire started. “This is your flash point, where you strike the match.”
