Title: Stories of Work, Life & the Balance in BetweenAuthor: Tomson RobertPublisher: The Write Place
Tomson Robert’s ‘Stories of Work, Life & the Balance in Between’ is not a self help book but it aims to inspire a little bit of hope. In this tiny collection of ten short stories, the writer offers, for the most part, variations on a single gimmick and a few limited situations. The stories are essentially fictitious but have uncanny similarity to situations in our everyday life. People in the corporate world — who are meant to work 24x7 365 days a year — can especially connect to these situations.
Success, development and growth come with a price. But is it worth the cost? We all know this truth. We know that when we want to succeed in life, we have to give up the simple joys in order to achieve another kind of happiness. Tomson develops a clear theme in book: success doesn’t lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success. The things we think will make us happier often don’t. And we want to believe it or not, all of us undergo similar circumstances where we prioritize wrongly.
Each story gives a gem of an advice. Some of the worth mentioning pointers are: “It doesn’t matter what you have learned, what matters is your willingness to learn new things;” “It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.” It closes with a fundamental principle of life: “Don’t stop having fun – be it work, life or the balance in between.”
The content of the book shines through in a clear, sincere way that is sure to inspire the reader even if it lends nothing new to their understanding.
