Robert (Bob) A. Giacalone, Ph.D. is a professor who teaches and does research in the areas of business ethics, organizational behavior, and human resource management. His fellow academics would tell you that he is a recognized expert on behavioral business ethics, exit interviewing and surveying, workplace spirituality, impression management, employee deviance, and the role of changing values in organizational life. They would also tell you that he has authored/edited eight books and written over 100 articles, is the Co-Editor of the Ethics in Practice book series, serves on several journal editorial boards, has edited many special issues on business ethics. and is currently Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Management, Spirituality, and Religion.
But all of these credentials have little to do with The Essence of Living, which he sees as a way to share ideas on living joyously, finding meaning, and focusing on a life that really matters. This blog is about living, being, simple joys, and escaping the cultural mindset that has us chasing phantoms that never bring us happiness.
I look forward joining in this living joyously journey and be the change I want to see in this world..
I have looked at old pictures and had that realization- Quite wise …enjoyed your blog!
I have to go back and look at my grad school pictures…maybe the old lab days will look good now!
Excellent blog, Bob! You covered it all! I can’t wait until the next one.
Dr. Bob i loved the Supermarket sweep life article. It really is the way that so many people live today. I have started asking the question you put in there of do I really need this as much as I can when I see something and a desire for it wells up in me. Most of the time it is not something I really need. I have what a friend of mine called a dumb phone. I can make and receive calls and can text if I have to but that is about it. Every once in a while an advertisement for an advanced smart phone stirs my interest and that question will keep me from going after it. the rest of the article will also help me in the future and i will look forward to more articles on here. thank you for taking the time to enrich others lives if they are willing to at least consider what is written here.

The Essence of Living seems to be a good way to begin my day and reflect upon the opportunity that faith can bring to our work.
