This book presents a focused, action-based, 16-week course on using sound business principles to clarify, enrich, expand and revitalize your personal life. The step-by-step approach will help you understand what really matters to you and how to organize your life to be satisfying and meaningful. Scott W. Ventrella helps you identify your core principles and tells you how to make them a living part of your life. He is not a guru who will tell you the secrets of life but rather a coach pushing you to make your own discoveries. His occasional use of composite (or perhaps fictional) characters as examples can undermine his credibility, but getAbstract recommends his practical program to people at the beginning of their careers, or those who’ve reached a dead end, and are willing to put in the time and work it takes to get moving.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why your “platinum standard” values should never change because of circumstances;
- Why a balanced life is more satisfying than one dedicated solely to work;
- How to create an “exceptional life plan” in 12 steps; and
- How to rethink and revise your goals.
