Embrace the Chaos: How India Taught Me to Stop Overthinking and Start Living

By Bob Miglani
An accomplished Fortune 50 executive translates for a western audience the lessons he learned from the land of his birth, India. Bob Miglani was stressed out, burnt out, and stuck until he rediscovered the enduring lessons of his childhood: celebrate impermanence, serve others, and move forward no matter what. Bob's message: chaos isn't going away--embrace it!


"If you feel your life is running you rather than you running your life, this book will show you how to achieve peace, order, and calmness in the middle of the storm." --Brian Tracy, coauthor of Kiss That Frog! "In this noisy, fast-paced world, it is hard not to get swept away by the demands, anxieties, and challenges that daily come down upon us. Embrace the Chaos shows us that only by opening our minds and our hearts to life's wonderful unpredictability can we truly live. It is a wise and welcome book." --Marcus Buckingham, author of First, Break all the Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths "Embrace the Chaos is a wonderful book that comes at the right time, offering us hope, inspiration, and the courage to keep moving forward." --Melanne Verveer, US Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women's Issues "Bob has offered an insightful and thought-provoking guide to navigating times of profound change." --Ian Read, Chairman and CEO, Pfizer Inc. "In a world where change, uncertainty, and continual reinvention have become the new norm, Bob Miglani takes us on a powerful and optimistic journey of quite literally embracing the chaos and organically transforming the future from threat into opportunity and optimism. Read Embrace the Chaos and believe it." --Henry S. Lodge, coauthor of the New York Times bestselling Younger Next Year and Younger Next Year for Women "Over 2,500 years ago, the Buddha taught his followers about the impermanent nature of existence...explaining how everything is constantly changing, ever flowing, eternally in flux. But our Western minds crave stability, certainty, predictability, and control. 'Give it up, ' Bob Miglani tells us in his new book. 'Your longing for control is futile. The truth of reality is chaos. Learn to go with the flow. Relax--and dance with the chaos.' The Buddha would agree. Therein lies freedom and happiness." --BJ Gallagher, coauthor of Being Buddha at Work "If we are going to continue to thrive in these times of profound change, we must learn how to embrace the chaos. This is a most compelling book that offers men and women everywhere hope, inspiration, and courage." --Ambassador Paula J. Dobriansky, former Under Secretary of State "We all can benefit from Bob's experience in learning to embrace the chaos of our modern life. This book is enormously helpful to me in navigating the everyday challenges of being a husband, father, and NFL official." --Carl Johnson, the NFL's first full-time on-field game official "Whether we're trying to transform education or change our own lives, it's about embracing chaos. Bob's wonderful book helps show us how to move purposefully and happily through the complex nature of work and life." --John Katzman, founder of The Princeton Review, 2U, and Noodle "Embrace this book! Bob articulates so perfectly the feelings we all have of uncertainty in life. His fascinating stories and unique observations offer a positive-thinking picture of what we need to get unstuck and move forward successfully." --Lynda Bekore, Managing Editor, SmallBizClub.com, and Huffington Post blogger "'Embrace the chaos' is not just a mantra for management--it's a mantra for life. We can all learn from and enjoy this simple but beautifully written book. It is, without question, worth the read." --John J. Connolly, EdD, President and CEO, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., and former President, New York Medical College "With a jolt, Bob's writing forces us to rethink our lives and transform ourselves--to step back from the daily roller coaster of life, savor every passing minute with a free spirit, and discover unlimited potential in ourselves! An easy-to-read manual of life!" --Deepak Ahuja, CFO, Tesla Motors
