Work for a living and still be free to live. Doesn’t seem possible, does it? Eileen McDargh’s convinced if you make the right choices you can do it. The new revised edition of her book Work for a Living and Still Be Free To Live! sets out in clear, well constructed language the choices available to change your working environment to a more satisfying, life enhancing model which allows time for what we would all like to do; lead our life rather than life leading us.

The choices that can be made when that depressing question: “Is that all there is?” won’t disappear from your thoughts are handled in an entertaining, encouraging way with examples of how to spot life stages or events that require a new direction.

For most people in Western society workplace changes are moving at a confusing, rapid rate - we no longer know what our job is or if we will have a job tomorrow. As a result we become afraid of change and insecurity turns to a feeling of powerlessness. Eileen McDargh counters this negativity by identifying choices and strategies which with a little hard work and an optimistic outlook will change not only your working life, but bring a measure of happiness and contentment to your out-of-hours life as well. The tough part, of course, is recognizing which choices are the right ones for you. The author gives a lot of help in this regard, detailing soul searching questions which need to be answered honestly before any changes to your lifestyle or working environment are embarked upon.

Stumbling blocks to change such as: I can’t waste my education, I might make a mistake, to be a success I have to make a lot of money and conversely if I make a lot of money I’m going to become corrupted, are all covered with engaging common sense explanations. Eileen McDargh’s contention is that we all move in and out of consciousness, unaware of the power we hold to alter our course. We should stop blaming others/our work and get on with the higher task of finding and becoming who we want to be.

There’s a quiz to determine if you’ve fallen into a bottomless work pit which has led to the burnout symptoms of fatigue, despondence and withdrawal from your nearest and dearest. Stories of other workers who have experienced and acknowledged burnout are included. The type of work pit to avoid and if you fall in, what to do about it; accept responsibility for your role in falling and start climbing back are realistic and enlightening.

Many more positive strategies for dealing with life experiences/tragedies that would leave you wondering if you could keep on going are covered in the book. Eileen McDargh believes everyone should strive for quality of life by making a choice that the “work” of our lives is in concert with our total human existence. Something that makes a lot of sense.  

Work for a Living and Still Be Free To Live! is a life affirming book, reading it will give you not only food for thought, but a whole smorgasbord of ideas to make your workplace and therefore your life a whole lot better.
