Niven, D. (2001).  100 Simple Secrets of Happy People.
"If you see your work as only a job, then it's dragging you away from what you really want to be doing. If you see it as a calling, then it is no longer a toiling sacrifice. Instead, it becomes an expression of you, a part of you." (p. 98)
Williamson, M., & Secretan L. (2000).  Imagine : what America could be in the 21st century : visions of a better future from leading American thinkers.
"People want it all. They feel, quite understandably, that is is their birthright. They want the fast life of converging technology, global roaming, rising opportunities, adrenaline-pumping challenges, and life at Web speed—and they want to spend time with their families and friends, meditate, keep fit, relax, and play. It's not about work/life balance; it's about the complete integration of work and life, a holistic, seamless fit between these two and every other aspect of life. The new-story leader encourages employees to engage their creative juices while they are walking along a beach, or to shop for groceries online while they are at work and not be self-conscious—indeed, to be unaware of the difference. Life is whole, not seperated into two solitudes called 'work' and 'life'. " (p. 129)
Simmons, A. (1999).  A Safe Place for Dangerous Truths: Using Dialogue to Overcome Fear & Distrust at Work.
"When you agree to dialogue, you invite disclosure of deep levels of conflict. The process strips back the superficial and reveals core issues. I have worked with groups where the core issues included personal issues as well as business issues. We may have been able to separate our personal lives from our professional lives ten years ago, but the new demands of business require our whole being. When we bring our whole being to work, business becomes more personal. Ignoring that fact severely limits your ability to build cohesion with a group."
Fromm, E. (1955).  The Sane Society.
"Concluding these remarks on workers' participation, I want to stress again, even at the risk of being repetitious, that all suggestions in the direction of the humanization of work do not have the aim of increasing economic output nor is their goal a greater satisfaction with work per se. They make sense only in a totally different social structure, in which economic activity is a part—a subordinate part—of social life. One cannot separate work activity from political activity, from the use of leisure time and from personal life. If work were to become interesting without the other spheres of life becoming human, no real change would occur. In fact, it could not become interesting. It is the very evil of present-day culture that it separates and compartmentalizes the various spheres of living. The way to sanity lies in overcoming this split and in arriving at a new unification and integration within society and within the individual human being." (p. 325)
Shechtman, M. R. (1995).  Working Without a Net.
"Who we are personally is inextricably connected to who we are professionally; the goal is to lead blended, not balanced lives." (p. 75)
