From the back cover:
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. once said, "A mind stretched by a new idea can never go back to its original dimensions." For a control freak like myself, this is no small matter.
Making Life Better is an invitation to own our part of our making and embrace our unique opportunities to make our lives better. It's about making our routine and daily choices of action, reaction, thought and feeling more profoundly connected to who we are, what we desire and what's most important to us. It's an invitation to turn off our auto-pilot setting and allow our sense of purpose, identity and direction to break into our lives with greater wisdom and clarity. It's a recognition that a meaningful, fulfilling and happy life is really nothing more (though certainly nothing less) than a very long series of meaningful, fulfilling and happy moments. How we experience each of those moments is always and completely within us.
" … every broken promise cuts deeply into our self-worth just as every excuse chips away at our self-honesty. But ignoring the honest realities of change, especially those involving our self-understanding and awareness, is to remain committed to dishonesty and in the end, no one else can be true to us for us... Simplicity with our words means applying our tools of self-awareness such that we are not only true to our word, but that our word is also true to us."
