  5. New Rules to be Happy with Your Work


The world we live today has gone through dramatic transition from what it once had been before the Lehman Crisis in 2008 and the recent earthquake and tsunami disaster that struck Japan, known as 3.11. At the time where we can no longer hope for constant economic growth, how can we lead most fulfilling work style? From own research where the author Sumiko Kajiyama undertook interviews with various business executives, she introduces ideas on work and happiness we need to bear in mind in order to survive the world today.
