Never Fails to Challenge

This collection challenges one to go beyond the normal patterns of thinking, to search for the truth of one's own reasons for doing things. I recommend it highly to "over-doers".

Great book, too bad the publisher doesn't believe in it.

I own the first edition of this book and have found it to be very helpful over the years. I recently bought the new edition and was very disappointed with the quality of the book. It's clearly not made for daily use, much less use over many years. The binding is stiff, hard to pry open and easily broken; the paper is the equivalent of cheap newsprint that will yellow within the year. It's clearly not constructed for daily use, but designed to be one of those quickie, "I know how you feel" gifts that you buy for someone you think is doing too much. It's a pity because the book deserves a better presentation. It makes you think about the far-reaching effects of perfectionism, workaholism, and "busy-ness" on your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health. Not every day is a perfect meditation, but every couple of days the alignment of the meditation with the events in your life creates a moment where the lightbulb goes on and you're jolted with the truth of who you are. With that revelation comes the possibility of change: a different decision; maybe a better decision. I'd love a high-quality version with a daily marker ribbon sewn into the spine. It's a good book and deserves better from its publisher.

Great Book for Women on the Go

What I love most about this book is that it is small enough to bring with you anywhere you go, and the wisdom large enough to calm and soothe you no matter where you are. It's the type of book that you can open to any page, and find wisdom ranging on topics such as: Being present to the moment; Busyness; Exhaustion; Goals; Honesty; Wholeness; Live life fully/Curiosity; Forgiveness; Feelings/Control; and the great list goes on - all 365 of them. If you feel harried and rushed, are in a long supermarket line, or stuck on traffic, this is the perfect book to open up and get you to feed your mind with wisdom to bring you more inner peace. A wonderful book, and I think it is great for men too.

You need this book.

We women are raised to take care of the world instead of ourselves. Kids, spouses, jobs, parents, organizations, volunteerism all take precedence in our lives over looking out for number one. What women don't realize that if we don't cut back some and take care of ourselves, we will crash, and who will be there to take care of all that we take care of now?I bought this book after I coordinated a mini-convention, discovered my mother has cancer, my older cat had breast cancer surgery, and I was attending a class on how to deal with my husband's diabetes. With the holidays coming up, my stress levels were raising more than my cholesterol. Something had to give.Every night this little gem of a book tells me that it's okay to let go, which was the same advice my best friend gave me the night I purchased it. I am not Wonder Woman, so why am I trying? Why do I feel the need to fix everyone and everything in my life except myself? This book will helps me uncover the behaviors affecting my life and then helps me change them.You need this book. I'm buying three more copies for other women who need them.

This is a wonderful book for women of all ages.

As a university student I often find myself loaded with work, worries, and rushing. I read a few passages from this book every night to clear my mind, center my thoughts, and see that there is more to life than always being busy. It is wonderfully written and compiled. It applies to many aspects of a woman's life. You don't have to be religious, a mother, or a working woman to get great value from this book.
