Dr. Telmesani, a Harvard and UC Berkeley graduate, was a university professor, a highly successful manager, and honored board member who, in 1995, came to the realization that his happiness and peace of mind were directly linked to incidents that occurred at work and with his family. He also realized that many of these incidents were out of his control, thereby making these states of contentment dependent on volatile factors. Did that mean that if unpleasant events occurred, he had to give up his happiness or peace of mind? And how could he remain in a positive state even when efforts to achieve success don’t go as planned? From these thoughts came the compelling and insightful book, The Balanced Way. From balancing a formula of excellence and contentment to having a balanced perception of reality, from improving our expectations of the future to freeing ourselves from past experiences, while maintaining ethical standards and a true passion for growth, this book delivers at every level.
