This book was written to inspire the reader, probably in midlife, to use their hard-hitting wakeup call(s) to finally, truly, change things moving forward.
To: rethink • reprioritize • recommit
The new world order for midlife crisis is spending our life chasing our dreams and finally getting there, more or less. But in looking around, we think, “This isn’t what I wanted!”
This revelation (and profoundly simple solution) came about from a late blooming dad’s attempt to leave a trail for his young child in case something bad ever happened, leading to a radical new discovery for life balance.
When the author finally woke up and realized he was not going to live forever, he became inspired by his long list of excuses, regrets, second chances, and ultimately, his discovery of who grants each of us permission to change.
The overarching themes of this book are personal responsibility, balance, and second chances.
Readers will either curse the author because they are angry at his accusations that personal responsibility is the secret to joy or misery, or readers will stand up and cheer because they have been desperately waiting for a gentle, generous, direct, and much needed kick in the buttocks, and that kick has finally arrived.
Playing around with Amazon Author Central and the ‘author biography’:
Sooner or later it becomes crystal clear, life is not a dress rehearsal. Live like you mean it.
Who: You. This book is all about you and your personal responsibility in life.
What: Excuses, regrets, second chances, permission.
Where: Every step you take.
When: All day. Every day.
Why: Because the clocks ticking.
How: rethink * reprioritize * recommit
The author shares what we already know, excuses lead to regret, regret leads to second chances, but there’s a catch at this point. Second chances require someone’s permission.
