“I Don’t Want to Work! – How Successful People Live To Work & Not Work To Live! ”   Lisa Kaye,  Coming in 2016.

How often do you catch yourself saying/shouting/exclaiming, “I don’t want to work!” If your basic needs were met and you could choose to live your life differently, how would you spend your time? Would your life resemble the picture you had in your head when you were a child and told yourself you could be anything you wanted to be when you grew up?

Maybe work doesn’t have to be a dreaded four-letter word. In fact, it may even be possible to wake up on a Monday morning and shout, “TGIM!”—because the way we define work has everything to do with how we feel when we are about to face the day. Are we bummed, depressed, stressed or looking forward to the day ahead, energized, pumped? This is a book about how successful people at all stages of life have transformed the concept of work into something that fills them with enthusiasm and excitement rather than dread. So much so that they consider what they’re engaged in as “not working.”

As one executive has redefined his work as, “3x3x9,” three days a week, three weeks a month, nine months a year-who wouldn’t want that schedule if they could have it?

I will take you through the real life stories of amazing folks who have literally redefined the way in which they work. You’ll hear from seasoned executives, recent college graduates, and those facing retirement who have figured out how to transition from “working” to “reworking” their careers. You’ll learn how to make not working for a living a career reality. After all, who wouldn’t want to work if they could do anything they wanted? Sounds like a sexy idea but it can be your reality too.
