Business Secrets of the Trappist Monks PDF Summary

6 min read ⌚ 

One CEO’s Quest for Meaning and Authenticity

There’s a lot to be learned from the simple, selfless lives of Trappist monks, as August Turak discovered. His book is a journey to becoming a better person, a better employee, a better leader.

It’s about becoming successful by focusing on everything but success and transforming your life (and the lives of those around you) along the way.


Reading this book feels like reading Siddhartha (although a closer match would be a Coelho book rather than Hesse), more specifically the part where Siddhartha – a man who renounced every worldly possession – tries and succeeds at being a prosperous merchant by using a spiritual approach for both his business model and for gaining the proper lessons out the experience.

Compared to other business books, Business Secrets of the Trappist Monks feels more like literature than business manual.
