Work From the Inside Out – 7 Steps to Loving What You Do

Everyone hopes for a rewarding and fulfilling career, but the day-to-day reality can be just the opposite. The routine of our jobs, office politics and problematic projects can often be the cause of frustration, worry and disappointment. The quest to find personal satisfaction, much less pride in our work can be daunting.


It doesn’t have to be this way. We can find meaning in our jobs – but the first thing we have to do is look within ourselves. Grounded in principles of Zen Buddhism, and full of real-life stories, Work From the Inside Out presents a simple plan to reclaim your job, and your life – and ultimately find the ability to truly love what you do.

“Unhappiness at work takes a serious toll on our mental and physical health and is a major risk factor for illness. If we want to live life at its fullest, we cannot afford to separate our work from our spiritual life. Work from the Inside Out shows how to weave these two aspects of our life into a seamless whole.”
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine & Healing Words


“Nancy O’Hara’s Work From the Inside Out is a subtle and intimate blend of traditional Zen Buddhist practice and practical wisdom. Clearly emerging from her own experience as both an employee and student of meditation, the exercises she outlines in the book are accessible yet deeply grounded in a spiritual tradition that goes back over twenty-five hundred years. O’Hara’s remarkable gift lies in presenting this venerable discipline in an accessible and thoroughly contemporary voice.”
—Perle Besserman, author of Owning It: Zen and the Art of Facing Life


“Don’t be fooled by Nancy O’Hara’s simple and elegant advice. Work from the Inside Out explains why we sometimes make ourselves miserable at work—and what we can do to change that.”
