wrote a book about lifelong quest for wisdom and self improvement would have to say I feel I was very fortunate that I received this book in giveaway Some of this came across to me as reminders, and other parts of the book definitely opened my eyes to new ways of thinking For years, I ve been so bogged down by all the things I had to do, I ve been running on autopilot much of the time Within the past few months, I came to an awareness that I didn t want to continue living this way I wanted moments to stop and smell the roses, and actually take time to appreciate the experience of living This book covers just about every area of life I could think of and then some Joseph has suggestions for your workplace that are applicable whether you are the boss or an employee There is lots of helpful information on how to get along with others and yourself He covers topics such as diet and meditation, as well as other things that add to our experiences I really like how the book is set up You can skip around to any area you wish to read about I also like that he wrote the book so that each chapter is broken down into insights or skills, which made it possible to read a few pages whenever I had a few free moments in my day.This massive undertaking is easy to read and I think everyone would find some helpful information in it flag 1 likeLike see review Mar 27, 2018 Mary rated it it was

others wisdom to speed up our learning curve so that we can avoid the pain and frustration of mistakes and missed opportunities Scattered throughout are relevant, pithy, and uplifting quotes, as well as anecdotes, that underscore his points.Deitch divides the book into two parts, the first half focusing on awareness, and the second, on action Because each concept informs the other, says the author, we need both in order to grow and change In other words, first we have to become aware of what does and does not work for us Deitch illustrates how , and then we have to put that awareness into action by implementing the ten skills the author details in individual chapters in Part Two.The book s title reflects Deitch s goal of helping readers elevate their awareness, understanding, and growth The author avoids using the pat jargon and truisms similar works employ And most of his ideas are very practical, as he can attest to given his own success in several professional spheres This work represents a sincere, down to earth effort to help others see themselves and the world in new ways and is well worth reading.This review is based on a free hardcover copy of the book provided by

business orientation Much certainly can be applied to the personal but I just got of a business application to much of it, which I found a little dry Also there is so much laid out here it can become rather mind boggling.Having said this, however, there is also much value in the topics and lessons Mr Deitch puts forth It is hard to argue with success Some of the topics he took on were also intriguing, like love It is the type of book that one really needs to study and go back to over and over again to get something life changing And that really is what is all about, change.He sums a lot of what he has to say in the book right at the end, stating ultimately, life is what you make of it Simple, yet powerfully stated and something we have all heard before I plan to go back and review many of these concepts starting with incremental change which he talks about And I plan to make something out of that as a first step flag 1 likeLike see review Mar 22, 2018 Laura Reading rated it
