Losing Sight, Finding Vision is for those who want to live fully and powerfully, not just react to loss.
You will discover how to gracefully meet life's adversities with kindness toward yourself, greater authenticity, and integrity, so you can forge a path of true alignment as you metabolize long-term illness or loss.
Losing Sight, Finding Vision illuminates profound and practical strategies for anyone on a learning journey through physical change and challenge.
While I can relate to the stages described in losing vision gradually and the loan that goes along with this, the rest is useless. this author makes it seem as if ones self worth is defined by being able to have a career when this is not E W a list for most blind people. most of us do not have resources to travel to seminars, gurus , etc. I have taken up painting as well since losing my vision but unlike this author I have not been able to go to multiple art c'asses. basically this book just alternated between boredom and anger.

You should support them to help them be productive. Also you will learn how to be a better employers for the rest of the team.
