We're busy. Overwhelmed. Swamped. Overloaded. Who has time to think about stuff like life?
Avi Shulman knows us. He knows that our lives are important, and that we long to fill our years, days, even minutes with meaningful activity.
He also knows that we don't have much time.
In Living Life to its Fullest, Mr. Shulman, a popular speaker, author and life coach, offers us short, insightful and readable vignettes, each designed to provoke conversation and thought.
A woman donates a kidney - and in the process saves her own life. A beis din issues a p'sak - against mice -- and the mice listen to it! These are true stories, engaging and fun, but, more important, each carrying a message that enriches our lives. The essays are so short - and so full of important wisdom. We see hashgachah pratis in action. We gain a greater appreciation for our Torah leaders. We learn to prioritize, to know when to speak and when to keep silent. Sometimes Mr. Shulman shares his own dilemmas with us, asking us to decide how to deal with a sensitive issue.
Take a few minutes. Read one piece a day - and you will find yourself living a fuller, more meaningful, more focused and happier life.
