Best "self-help" book I've read yet, although I haven't read too many of them.
No, but I would like to hear more from him. Great reading voice, very soothing and genuine.
1. Focus on the present and on the process and use your goal only as a rudder. Most stress and anxiety are creations of your own mind, and come about when you're not focusing on the present. If you're always thinking about the future or the past and never the present, you will never be happy with where you are.
2. D.O.C. - Do. Observe. Correct. Just do your best. Failing is a part of life, so you shouldn't be anxious about it. When you fail, don't get emotional about it. Instead, observe what went wrong and correct it next time. This is how practice works.
3. "At what point in the stage of the life of a flower has it reached perfection?" This part of the book made me tear up on the first and subsequent listens. The answer is that the flower is always perfect at being what it is in that stage of its life. It's no use getting frustrated about not being where you want to be. You will get there, but it will take time, and you should enjoy where you are right now because there is beauty in every stage of life. This is an extremely freeing concept.
I've started trying to apply these concepts both in my work and while driving. I still have a long way to go, but when I remind myself of these ideas I experience much less fear, frustration, and restlessness, and are more compassionate towards others who I can see are struggling with the same issues.
I wish it was longer! I'm on my second listen and will probably revisit this book in the future to help reinforce these ideas in my mind.
This book is a wonderful book that keeps thing in proper perspective. I am much more content and happier by just staying in the moment and focusing in on one thing at a time. Highly recommend it.
I love knowledge, wisdom. I love to be inspired, motivated and encouraged. Business is my passion. One day I will be rich.
Makes you put a lot of things in perspective such as your present life. Take one day at time.

This was very inspiring. Anyone who struggles with "Once I accomplish this, I will be happier" needs to listen to this. He was on point on a lot of things. I had a lot of "Aha" moments. I was very pleased and will definitely be listening to this one again.
I like how this audio was short and sweet, practical, and taught to the author by his own experiences. Through the experiences, breakthroughs were discovered that helped the author break down tasks, remove judgment, and simply do, observe, and correct activities as needed until the task is accomplished.
