Chris Lowney’s new book Heroic Living is particularly apt for these troubled and uncertain times. A previous book, Heroic Leadership, was a major bestseller and has become a standard text in business schools and in many major corporations.
In Heroic Living, Chris urges us to find our “mighty purpose” for life – “a reason for living that is so much bigger than yourself that it transforms you, your relationships, and the world as a result.” Quite a challenge, but Chris has the chops to guide us on our way.
Here’s his opening paragraph:
You were born to change the world.
You can make the most of this unique opportunity by mastering three vital skills:
- Articulate a purpose worth the rest of your life.
- Make wise career and relationship choices in this changing, uncertain world.
- Make every day matter by mindful attention to your thoughts, actions and results.
