Intentional Living: Choosing a Life That Matters (Center Street, 2017)

Drift through life or Live a life of Intentionality? It’s really up to each of us to make the choice. What do you want to be remembered for? I know this questions sounds a bit morbid in nature. However, the truth is we are all going to die and we must live everyday in a way that makes a positive impact. We must grow.  Growth however, does not occur automatically. It is a very deliberate process.

Everyone deep down wants to make a difference in the world, and “Intentional Living: Choosing a Life that Matters,” is the instruction guide for how to make it happen.

As is typical of John’s writing style, he shares a number of simple but very powerful ideas and actions you can take to get some momentum on your mission like; start small but believe big, search until you find your why, add value to others from your sweet spot, connect with like-minded people, and more.

I also enjoy the stories he tells about how he came to prominence in his field, and it should not be a surprise: He got around people like Norman Vincent Peale, W. Clement Stone, Zig Ziglar, etc. and invested in their books, conferences and other resources. He was (and still is) intentional about his personal growth and development and he encourages you to do the same throughout the book.
