This book is only a guide as to how one could achieve happiness coupled with other qualities to lead a self-content life. This does not deal with giving advice to those who have medical ailments or those who have anxiety/depression. This book has a reference to the Happiness Index in which our neighbouring nation Bhutan excels.
We have seen the longevity of our lives extended by many years. People tend to longer these days but at what cost?
How things that were invented to make our life easy is ruining it in real?
Observations made in this book are good not only for the present scenario but also for the years to come....
We have always talked about PPM when it comes to industrial production and output but have we ever thought about implementing the same in our lives as well to see where we lag and how we could improve it drastically?
It is an undeniable fact that everything these days including food, technology, gadgets have made our life convenient and keep us on par with the fast-moving world but what are its aftermath effects? This is something we need to consider. Don't you agree?
I completely agree with most of the points which the author has mentioned in this book which includes deprival of sleep, overworking, online engagement 24/7, zero privacy, FOMO(Fear Of Missing Out)Fall of the family as an institution( remember we once had Joint Family system in our country), political correctness, global warming etc which are alarming and needs our immediate attention to fix things on an emergency basis.
The QoL or the Quality Of Life depends on various aspects which could be implemented in an effective way. The Yin and The Yang processes and what attributes are connected to QoL is well explained. Kudos to the author for that.
I have also learnt something new from this book which is PDCA Cycle where
P stands for Plan
D stands for Do
C stands for Check and
A stands for Act
Do not miss Chapter 4 - Tools and Techniques
