I'm a technology manager, a musician, a husband, a father and a follower of Christ.
Great book that gives common sense guidance on maximizing the time on the peaks, minimizing the time in the valleys and getting the most good out of both experiences.
This makes on examine the highs and lows of our lives. How long you want to stay in the valley or say on the mountain tops of life. Author uses the simplest of examples to make you think about your life's up's and down's. Must Read and examine.
Similar to Who Moved My Cheese -- good overall message, but I'm not sure how much I really got out of it.
The book simplifies what you may already know that life just 'is' but how to deal with it for the best results for YOU. Very relatable text and to the point.
