"To work is to live: for without work there can be no life and without life, there can be no work." So reads the opening statement in The Eloquence of Effort: Beware the Path of Least Resistance by Indar Maharaj. Is this a book that counters the rising culture that extols productivity by doing less? To answer that question, the author stresses that both effort and work are used interchangeably while acknowledging that in physics, work is defined as a function of effort over distance traveled. This book serves as a thesis to establish that all work is of equal value. The book is divided into eight sections that are in turn subdivided into chapters. Examining the work ethic of individuals, corporations, countries, and empires will allow you to critically evaluate whether there is truly a need for more leisure time.
The Eloquence of Effort may well provide a new outlook for employers and human resource experts. It also has merit for those who still believe in good old-fashioned hard work - with a purpose. Indar Maharaj’s eloquence on this thesis, which integrates religious philosophies, gives you an enlightening perspective on bringing meaning into your work. While the pandemic has paved the way for a New Normal that clamors for more leisure time, if not a balance between personal life and work, many of us are still happier, healthier, more engaged, and better performing when our work is meaningful to us, regardless of where we work. Maharaj melds the concept of Karma with the Second Law of Thermodynamics to provide you with a logical understanding of why conscientious toil always wins. This is a meaningful book that doesn’t push you to work yourself to death. Rather, this must-read work will protect you from the downside of toil that has no purpose.
