The book describes four stages of transition: perceive, pick up and prepare. It first looks at the present state of affairs to understand why people remain unhappy throughout their lives (perceive). It helps the reader understand or pick up wisdom from the ages, so-called lenses, that will help one gain a new perspective and take action to end their unhappiness. It helps the reader to prepare. This is to examine one’s life and work within the context of karma. To make the necessary changes, to ensure that you are on the right track to happiness. This stage also addresses the issues and challenges associated with work-life balance. The last stage is to proceed, which is to begin your journey to make lasting changes using the new compass. The end of each chapter contains exercises that will help you gain insights from the book’s message.
