Szen Zone by Gary Szenderski

Summary:

Whereas ZEN is of the moment and what is, SZEN celebrates what could be. The SZEN ZONE – Reaching a State of Positive Change contains lighthearted and positive narrative on life and its possibilities, with stories that cover the gamut from interesting to profound. The general overarching theme is on change and all of the aspects of it – Creating, surviving, and managing change with the goal to recognize the power we have to become what we choose, both when we’re feeling in control and how to mange when we’re not in control.

I like the idea of Zen and Szen so I was excited to read this book. The book is good bathroom reading material because it’s a bunch of really short stories so you can read just a little at a time.

I don’t like long books or long stories so I appreciated this aspect. I did have a little trouble getting into the book though. Maybe I just wasn’t in a frame of mind for self help or maybe my racing mind just couldn’t concentrate on one story when there was another one on the facing page.

The chapter headings give you an idea of some of the content:

  • Boldly Go
  • The Productivity Promise
  • The Past – Letting Go
  • Living in the Present
  • Creating the Future
  • When Knowledge is Power
  • Taking Chances
  • The Szend

There are different types of stories, from 60 word introductory stories to memories to ideas to spark motivation. In the case of this book it is probably better to open the book to a random page and read instead of reading front to back.
