One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. The paradox of yesterday’s dislike for a simple concept is paradoxically highlighted by one of Mid Life Celebration’s first book reviews:
I read the book this morning, and as expected, it is fantastic! Having read Jeff’s blogs for quite some time, there are a lot of familiar themes in the book, and it is great to have them together in one spot.
What stuck with me was a simple sentence that Jeff sprinkles throughout the book. “We know this.” There are a lot of lessons that are shared, and ideas to help us be better, that at the core are simple things that we really do know. We just may not be paying attention to them, or they may be drowned out by the other things in our lives. Taking the time to “rethink, reprioritize, and recommit” helps us see that we know what we need to do. We just have to get the clutter out of the way.
Having just seen the Disney Institute video of Jeff speaking about the CEO of You, Inc., it was neat to see that idea carry across his day job and his passion.
The video Brian speaks of is here.
