Prisoners of Our Thoughts
IN THIS SUMMARY
Victor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning is considered one of the most influential books of modern times. His personal story of discovering a reason to live while in the Nazi concentration camps inspired millions.
Prisoners of Our Thoughts applies Frankl’s philosophy to the workplace, detailing seven principles for increasing one’s capacity to deal with work challenges, finding meaning in daily work life, and achieving one’s highest potential.
All individuals, no matter what their role in their company, can choose meaning: They can pay attention to everything around them. They can choose respect, kindness, courtesy, justice, and fair play. They can have an impact that is ethical and moral. And they can understand that when they bring meaning to work, they bring with them the possibility of meaningful change in the workplace.
