In 136 short essays, Dr Richard Carlson teaches us, in his gentle and encouraging style, simple strategies for living a more fulfilled and peaceful life. We can all learn to put things in perspective by making the small daily changes he suggests, including such advice as: !!!**ask yourself this question, `Will this matter a year from now?'; do something nice for someone else - and don't tell anyone about it; surrender to the fact that life isn't fair; listen to your feelings (they are trying to tell you something); remember that when you die, your `in' box won't be empty. With these thoughtful and supportive suggestions, Dr Carlson reveals ways to make your actions more peaceful and caring, and encourages you to trust your intuitions so that you live each day as if it might be your last.
