Hi there and welcome back to Steve’s book corner. Take a seat and help yourself to some fine scotch.
I don’t mind telling you sexy people that I am having a bad time of it at work. It’s just driving me insane lately and seeing as iv been there so long maybe it’s time to move on? But to where and how? Ireland is not exactly flush with jobs for people as abrasively confident and charismatic as myself. Bosses these days want people they can manipulate easily and pay peanuts to and I’m not about to leave one hellhole only to jump face first into another.
So how do I find that elusive perfect job? It must be out there somewhere surely? I decided to have a look around a few top quality book retailers for an inspirational self help type offering, you know…something that will put fire under my ass and fill me with that “Can Do” attitude. Did I find it? You better believe it buddy.
When you need a pick me up, something to get your career on track, this is easily the best book to look to. I honestly have learned so much from the gang.
The plot, in a nutshell, is about progressing through your day with a positive outlook. Elmo really helped me see that finding the negatives on a daily basis is only holding me back. We start in the bedroom where you are asked to find matches of items…socks, lamps, toys etc.
At first I found this very tricky and I needed A LOT of help for the first two pages but after that it was childs play. I was flying through the magnificently illustrated cardboard pages finding the positive items with relative ease. I believe this is a device used by the author to teach us that life is all about learning as we go, finding a rhythm in the routine of daily life and doing it with a can do attitude! It is genius.
So there you have it. If you hate your job and everything about your life this is the book to turn to before you consider suicide. Im sure you are reading this in bed or on the couch late at night so il leave you with this to send you off to happy happy SleepyTown…
