Dr. Bob Tobin lived what looked like a great life in Southern California: he had a house by the beach, a good consulting practice, and a BMW. But he wasn’t truly happy. Work didn’t really work for him.

After a trip, losing a job, and a major change in perspective, Bob relocated to Japan, where his career path changed in ways he had never predicted and he finally found personal satisfaction, success and happiness.

But how did he do it? And how can you do it?

Many of us feel a dissatisfaction with our lives, but lack the ability or mindset to make happiness a priority. It’s time to forget everything you think you know about how to succeed, and stop trying to fit the mold. Traditional models of “success” don’t work—not in a way that is right for you. Start learning more about yourself and your passions—and start realizing your creative and professional dreams in your life—today.

What Do You Want to Create Today?: A Guide For Having a Great Life at Work shows you how to develop your career in a way that uniquely suits you.

Tobin has spent 25 years inspiring hundreds of executives and thousands of students to create the kind of lives they want at work using the strategies outlined in this book. His pioneering approach comes from his years as an American professor and consultant in Asia, and his experience running a contemporary art gallery in Tokyo.

Offering a mix of inspiring advice, practical suggestions, questions for reflection, and uplifting stories, What Do You Want to Create Today? will become an essential guide in finding happiness and fulfillment via your work.

  • You’ll gain a new perspective as you learn:
  • Why focusing on objectives is holding you back
  • How to “read the air” and act on what people don’t say
  • How to develop courage and confidence
  • How best to handle difficult coworkers

It’s time to embrace your dreams, surround yourself with positive people, summon your courage, have fun working, and never stop learning.
