We all know the answers.

In Turning Ideas Into Action, Rabbi Noach Orlowek, mashgiach of Yeshiva Torah Ore, an "educator's educator" who has taught literally thousands, a talmid chacham who travels the globe speaking and sharing his wise counsel with mechanchim, parents and students, shows us how.
Rabbi Orlowek brings us 32 "mindsets" - short, Torah-based chapters, each dealing with an important aspect of our lives and self-development. In the "Happiness Mind-set" we learn how to become optimists in an increasingly pessimistic society, and how to take those "wow" moments of inspiration and build them into true, permanent growth. Rabbi Orlowek is famed for his parenting classes, and the "Parenting Mind-set" is critical to anyone raising children in today's fast-paced, bewildering world.
Every "mindset" is firmly grounded in Torah hashkafah. True stories bring the concepts to life, and a "turning ideas into action" section translates the ideas into practical, doable exercises.
The journey from "I wish" to "I will" begins here, as we turn our thoughts and hopes into real, enduring action, through this life-transforming book.
