● 內文簡介

« 獲暢銷書作者萊恩‧霍利得(Ryan Holiday)和卡爾‧紐波特(Cal Newport)盛情推薦。

本書提供一套六大支柱計畫,教你對抗倦怠,實現更持久、更充實的成功。

高成就是有代價的。許多人因執著於外在成就和出類拔萃,而面臨焦慮、不安、關係緊張、心力交瘁,甚至物質成癮等等不良副作用,對自己和他人都造成傷害。本書作者Brad Stulberg稱之為「英雄式個人主義」(heroic individualism)。如果罹患「英雄式個人主義」,你會因偶爾勝利的快感而暫時滿足。然而到了最後,一旦精心安排的計畫失敗,你會面臨不可預知的障礙;一旦發現無法永久滿足,你將感到漫無目標、痛苦不已。

在《The Practice of Groundedness》中,作者分享一套全新成功模式,公然挑戰二十一世紀對於成功「永遠嫌不夠」的文化。這套模式的核心在於「踏實」(groundedness)——這個作法重視當下而非死板板的生產力,它接受過程並非有努力就有結果的事實,同時強調長期價值和滿足而非短視近利。最終而言,「踏實」讓人對自己產生一種堅定、毫不動搖的意識,從這股意識中,你將找到深沉持久,而非表面淺薄的成功。

作者在書中融合個案研究、現代科學,和取自佛教、斯多葛主義和道教等古老智慧的古訓,教導讀者如何透過日常習慣和活動,培養更踏實的生活。舉例來說,讀者將會學到:

◎ 為何保持耐心才能更快達到工作和生活上的目標,以及如何培養耐心。
◎ 如何透過明眼智者的觀點認清並接受自己目前的階段,以便更有效率地
◎ 為何接受弱點才能擁有真正的力量和自信。

這本大膽實用的指南將會帶你克服「永遠要在線上」的心態,獲得更滋養、持久、真實的成功。

● 媒體報導

“Brad Stulberg is one of my favorite writers about performance and success in all its forms. The Practice of Groundedness gets to the heart of the matter.” -- Ryan Holiday, New York Times bestselling author of Stillness Is the Key and Ego Is the Enemy

“When Brad first described this idea to me, my immediate response was: ‘You have to write this book!’ The Practice of Groundedness will offer a crucial alternative to the large audience of those exhausted by soulless exhortations to crush it, and looking for a deeper approach to building a successful life.” -- Cal Newport, New York Times bestselling author of Digital Minimalism and Deep Work

“Brad Stulberg has become the writer I turn to for examinations of success, in all of that word’s personal and professional complexities and connotations. The Practice of Groundedness is a perfect extension of what Brad has been building for years. It follows from his essays and previous books--but is more ambitious, far-reaching, and impactful.” -- David Epstein, New York Times bestselling author of Range and The Sports Gene
