“This book is inspiring! In plain and simple English it leads you to think through what is most important at each moment and then to act accordingly. Filled with amusing and insightful anecdotes, it is a wise guide through the difficulties of everyday life and for changing your life in directions you really want.”

Somewhere along the way, we bought into a notion that life is chaotic and that it’s okay that way. We think it’s normal to have a to-do list that’s longer than our arm, and to expect that there will be bedlam between the time we get home from work until we get to bed. We juggle jobs and family around in order to achieve some sense of balance without even being certain what the weights are on either side of the teeter-totter. We get so tired and worn out that we’re ready to burn out or sell out, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
