This is a wonderful book.  This should be required reading for anyone who has an interest in personal development and leadership.  It’s much more than a one-time read.  It’s really a valuable resource on a wide variety of important themes that focus on developing yourself and others.  It’s a book that you’ll find yourself going back to over and over.  It has application to every industry.  The rich content and graphics make for an easy, fun read.  The short chapters are perfect for a world that has too much on its mind.  Grant has done a wonderful job in putting this together.  I can’t recommend this book highly enough.

When you said you were sending me a book you authored, I assumed that it would be more of a very limited, self-published book based on a narrow set of personal business experiences. Instead, it is really a textbook. It is personal but full of business content. The graphics are terrific. It is really a compendium of great thinking. I even saw the Adizes model there for life cycles. You are an extremely well-read business book reader. But, then you synthesized them into themes. I have actually met several of your sources, which made it even more personal to me.

How to Achieve the Ultimate State of Wellness

That title should raise some red flags for you immediately.

I mean, who can predict what it would take to achieve the ultimate state of wellness for any individual?

There are commonly held beliefs, a great deal of science and a plethora of information available on the achievement of aspects of wellness, but “The Ultimate State of Wellness”? That’s a very individual and ethereal thing.

I remember the elation I felt the first time I completed the 13-minute ab track in my mentor’s aerobics class. Those were the days of “burn baby, burn”.

At that point in the fitness industry’s history, the term “Wellness” was just coming into our vernacular. Most of us fitness zealots didn’t really understand what wellness was, but on some level, it resonated with me as the way of the future.

As my career in fitness morphed into a career in wellness, my appreciation for the more holistic benefits of balancing body, mind and spirit were accentuated.

Does Our Built Environment Affect Our Relationships?

Does Our Built Environment Affect Our Relationships?

The “Big Mac” symbolizes the belief that more is better. If one beef patty is good, wouldn’t two beef patties be better?

Similarly, the colloquialism of the “McMansion” suggests that bigger is better when it comes to homes.

It feels as though in modern housing estates with tightly packed McMansions, compromise on the lot size is a given in order to get a bigger house for the money.

This is not just developers trying to maximize their land asset, it is also consumers saying they’d rather get a bigger house and forgo lot size in order to achieve additional square footage.
