In the years following her role as the lead author of the international best seller, Limits to Growth - the first book to show the consequences of unchecked growth on a finite planet - Donella Meadows remained a pioneer of environmental and social analysis until her untimely death in 2001. Thinking in Systems is a concise and crucial book offering insight for problem-solving on scales ranging from the personal to the global.

Life is not a series of random events but is orchestrated through a set of natural laws that govern life on Earth. Once we understand these laws, we will have a better understanding of how life works. Once we understand how life works, we can make it work for us instead of against us. This book is a guidebook intended to offer knowledge that you can use throughout life. If I could sum up this entire book in one statement, it would be: Your mind is literally shaping the world around you.

But, something new and unrealized sparked. When asked to think about the best possible outcome, I asked myself. Then thought about the it. The answer was: Nothing, because thats what I would do 10 out of 10 times, nothing. Im embarrassed to admit that I have always only thought about the fear, and security of the shell it provides. You have given me something to work on. Thank you for writing this book.

Michael wakes up in the hospital with a bandage on his head and fear in his heart. The stress of building a growing business, with his wife Sarah, caused him to collapse while on a morning jog. When Michael finds out the man who saved his life is a Carpenter he visits him and quickly learns that he is more than just a Carpenter; he is also a builder of lives, careers, people, and teams. As the Carpenter shares his wisdom, Michael attempts to save his business in the face of adversity, rejection, fear, and failure.
