Product description

Product Description

Drawing on Eastern philosophy, Buddhism, Japanese Psychology, Zen, the Samurai, and Martial Arts, Gregg Krech offers an approach to ACTION that guides you to doing what is important for you to do in the time you have available. Most of us associate Eastern wisdom with meditation and contemplation. Krech offers a complimentary collection of wisdom on the Art of Taking Action that will help you take action even when you don’t feel like it. This isn’t just another “how to get things done” book. It’s about how you do what you do, and the impact that your action (and inaction) has on the world.

Students of Zen, Yoga, Taoism, meditation, mindfulness and Japanese culture, will resonate with ideas and practical strategies such as: Overcome by Going Around, Non-attachment – Effort and Outcomes, The Rhythm of Activity, The Stress of Not Getting Things Done, Procrastination Disguised as Busyness, Working with the Conditions We Encounter, Impermanence and Legos, and more.

Krech brings more than 25 years of experience teaching and studying Japanese psychology to create a unique collection wisdom on “Taking Action” that is both practical and profound. If you are ready for some “movement” in your life, this book is just what you need.
