Are you're a Type A, stressed out, work, work, work achievement junkie, who's not really satisfied with the life you're living? And you don't really appreciate the "touchy-feely" pseudo-psychologist self-improvement gurus writing today? Well, I've got an excellent book recommendation for you.
The Daily Six is written by a hard-driving, Type A, no-nonsense businessman who ran headlong into the "brick wall of enlightenment." Chappelear calls that brick way his "Gift of Devastation." That "gift" helped him change his focus and his life. He learned how to build a whole and balanced life for himself, his family, and his company. The Daily Six lays out how to adopt Chappelear's six simple tenets and start taking the actions that will produce the same balance and positive results without the need for a brick wall. You'll find John Chappelear is someone you can respect and believe because he's lived these real-world experiences, and he makes perfect sense.
Like the good businessman he is, Chappelear gets right to his six key points. Next, he outlines and explains how to use these six practices. And how to incorporate them into your daily life. The result is a sense of becoming more successful, prosperous, and personally fulfilled. John's minimalist approach includes exactly enough instructive detail and plenty of apt anecdotes to keep a smooth flow of interest in this comfortable and very readable book. He is both succinct and persuasive.
Best of all, he doesn't ask you to add time and tasks to your already hectic life. He asks you to change your focus and select the most important things you can do to live well and happily. And to drop the unnecessary busyness, stress, and worry that you never needed in the first place. Take the short time needed to read this book. You'll be glad.
