SYNOPSIS

As L. Ron Hubbard describes in this book, life is composed of seven-tenths work, one-tenth familial, one-tenth political and one-tenth relaxation. Here, then, is Scientology applied to that seven-tenths of existence including the answers to Exhaustion and the Secret of Efficiency. Here, too, is the analysis of life itself—a game composed of exact rules. Know them and you succeed. The Problems of Work contains technology no one can live without, and that can immediately be applied by anyone in the workaday world.

FULL DESCRIPTION

Life is composed of seven-tenths work, one-tenth familial, one-tenth political and one-tenth relaxation. Here, then, is Scientology applied to that crucial seven-tenths of existence.

The Problems of Work contains the senior principles and laws which apply to every endeavor, every problem of work. For they are the discoveries which lay bare the core of these problems and explain the very fabric of life itself.

The breakthroughs detailed here include:

The Anatomy of Confusion—and its cure The Doctrine of the Stable Datum—the most fundamental law of work, and living The Anatomy of Control—and how to turn “bad control” to good The Anatomy of Life as a Game—and the rules by which it is played The “Secret” of Efficiency The most fundamental elements of life—Affinity, Reality and Communication And, the rock bottom cause of Exhaustion, with the powerful Scientology processes that return the energy of youth

Here, then, is not only technology to bring stability to the workplace, but the magic processes to return joy itself to all of life. For this is Scientology.

I really liked the practical help that this book gave me to handle some problems I was having with my work. Although I was good at sales I was a bit disorganized. . I would sometimes lose leads and create confusion through this. Not good. Just applying the simple advice of finishing what you start, and sort one thing out at a time when things are confused really helped. improve my efficiency and in the end sales. I like the advice of taking a walk as well !!

About the author (2007)

Author, humanitarian and Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard is one of the most acclaimed figures of the modern age.

In a writing career spanning more than half a century, he was both a leading light of American fiction and the author of more than 35 million words of nonfiction—the single most embracive statement on the human mind and spirit, providing the only road to total spiritual freedom.

To date, more than 250 million copies of his works are in circulation worldwide, in 71 languages. All told, those works comprise over 3,000 recorded lectures and some 5,000 writings, including nineteen New York Times bestsellers.

Accordingly, and in testament to the magnitude of his literary legacy, there are his four Guinness World Records: most published author, most translated author, the author with the most audiobook titles and the single most translated non-religious work.

Yet the essence of L. Ron Hubbard’s legacy is perhaps best expressed in his simple declaration:

“I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days.

“These shadows look so thick to him and weigh him down so that when he finds they are shadows and that he can see through them, walk through them and be again in the sun, he is enormously delighted. And I am afraid I am just as delighted as he is.”
