Inhaltsangabe

A long-awaited follow-up to the New York Times best-selling Search Inside Yourself shows us how to cultivate joy within the context of our fast-paced lives and explains why it is critical to creativity, innovation, confidence, and ultimately success in every arena.

In Joy on Demand, Chade-Meng Tan shows that you don't need to meditate for hours, days, months, or years to achieve lasting joy - you can actually get consistent access to it in as little as 15 seconds. Explaining joy and meditation as complementary things that naturally reinforce each other, Meng explains how these two skills form a virtuous cycle and, once put into motion, become a solid practice that can be sustained in daily life.

For many years, meditation has been taught and practiced in cultures where almost all meditators practice full-time for years, resulting in training programs optimized for practitioners with lots of free time and not much else to do but develop profound mastery over the mind. Seeing a disconnect between the traditional practice and the modern world, the best-selling author and Google's "Jolly Good Fellow" has developed a program, through "wise laziness", to help listeners meditate more efficiently and effectively. Meng shares the three pillars of joy (inner peace, insight, and happiness) and why joy is the secret is to success and demonstrates the practical tools anyone can use to cultivate it on demand.

Great content, great reader! Highly recommended.

Just listen and you will instantly feel good! The problem with the audio book is that you cannot easily find the parts of the book where something is summarized or an (in)formal formal practice is described.

Als Hörbuch nicht geeignet/no breaks for exercises

I got this audiobook after I heard an interview with the author. Didn't work at all for me as an audio book. For example, you are instructed to take a minute and pay attention to your breath. However, the audio book does not pause for a minute, it just immediately continues. In the beginning, I sometimes didn't even notice that there was an instruction to do something. If you wanted to follow them, you would have to stop the book, somehow determine when the minute is over, and then play further. That did not work for me at all.
