The holidays are a heck of a way to end the year. After 12 months of juggling schedules, rushing to meet deadlines and trying to put 26 hours of day into one suited for only 24, we end the year trying to do all of these things on steroids! If you're like most of us, you come into the holidays looking for some peace and quiet, seeking respite and perspective on the year that was. That perspective can be just what we need to balance our world and help us make sense of it all. It is perspective that allows us to be thankful for all that we have and all that we have accomplished. It is also perspective that allows us to recommit to the fray with a new sense of purpose and a strong vision for the New Year.
I have the perfect book for you to read over the holidays, one that will help you find that perspective. It is the inspirational story of tragedy, courage and triumph. As we read of one man's journey through experiences most of us will never know, we are left with a renewed admiration for the boundless capabilities of the human spirit.
