How much do I want to read more? 8/10
I like the message very much: Don't do more, but do the right thing.
It all starts with self-clarification. What's unique in ourselves, the exploration of ourselves to set our unique priorities.
I'm eager to read, because I just need that.
I feel I don't have a clear vision of what my priorities are. Most importantly, day after day, I don't feel I'm fullfilling or getting closer to what I aspire.
“Many things in life are worth missing out on. This book is not one of them. Pick this book up if you want to discover what your deepest-held priorities should be, get to know yourself better than you have before, and actually act on what’s important every day. I loved this book and couldn’t put it down.”
