I can’t believe it’s been two years since I started to write down my thoughts about Love at Work in my journal. I was at my cottage on Manitoulin Island. (my native friends tell me that Manitoulin Island means ”The Home of the Great White Spirit”) Each morning, as I sat overlooking Tobacco Lake, a flood of ideas and impressions presented themselves to me. I remember writing, “Why would I write a book about love in the workplace? People will think I’m a nutcase.”
Well, Love at Work landed on Amazon.com this June and the initial response from readers has indicated that I might not be too far gone – in fact, for several people, the notion of practicing love at work came just on time – confirming what they knew in their gut and practiced in their leadership style all along: 1. Love creates feelings 2. Feelings release energy 3. Energy produces results.
It is so intriguing to look at the pages in my journal now – two years later, and see how the thoughts I wrote on the page, which seemed so amorphous then – have morphed into something solid and useful for people in the midst of their very real and challenging work-life tensions. How appropriate that a timely and useful message would be sparked in the home of the Great White Spirit!
