Item Description...
Counsels readers on how to transcend daily stresses to attain a deeper understanding of one's true purpose, discussing such strategies as identifying and attending to actual needs and making self-supporting commitments.

Publishers Description
Do you ever feel that if you weren't so busy you would be happier, healthier, more effective, more fulfilled...and maybe even a better person?
Once every twenty-five years or so, a book comes along that perfectly identifies our common search and struggle for happiness, and teaches us how to find lasting fulfillment in a changing world. This is that book. Not since M. Scott Peck published "The Road Less Traveled" have we experienced a voice as refreshing and authentic as Matthew Kelly's.
"The Rhythm of Life" will help you to bring into focus who you are and why you are here. Through this book Matthew Kelly will help you discover your legitimate needs, deepest desires, and unique talents. He will introduce you to the-best-version-of-yourself and lead you to a life filled with passion and purpose.
Here are just a few of the timeless creeds that he presents in "The Rhythm of Life..."
"You were born to become the-best-version-of-yourself. This is your essential purpose. Embrace this one solitary truth and it will change your life more than anything you have ever learned. In every situation, ask yourself, Which of the options before me will help me become the-best-version-of-myself?"
"Everything is a choice. This is life's greatest truth and its hardest lesson. It is a great truth because it reminds us of our power. Not power over others, but the power to be ourselves and to live the life we have imagined. It is a hard lesson because it causes us to realize that we have chosen the life we are living right now."
"The measure of your life will be the measure of your courage. Courage animates us, brings us to life, and makes everything else possible. Fear stops more people from doing something with their lives than lack of ability, contacts, resources, or any other single variable. Fear paralyzes the human spirit. Life takes courage."
"Energy is our most valuable resource, not time. The rhythm of life is a way of life that brings our legitimate needs, our deepest desires, and our unique talents into harmony with each other. The result: passion, purpose, and energy."
Kelly has a way of thinking and writing that cuts through the stifling clutter of our everyday lives and delivers a clarity that is both refreshing and liberating.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Outstanding!!  Nov 25, 2006
This book gives extreme insight and motivation to increase a person's well-being and striving toward self-confidence. An awesome combination of drive, passion and reality. Very Clever!
Nothing ground-breaking, but a good thing to read if you need to revisit the easily-forgettable obvious.  Jul 31, 2006
Make a list of your life goals. Picture a world in which you have only a month to live, and use that to help prioritize how you live. Remember that a life that makes you happy or at ease and that lets you do things you value is worth more than promotions or more money. Use positive affirmations. Schedule time to 'waste' with friends. Make time for yourself. Meditate or pray, if you're into god stuff (the author is.)

This is all excellent advice. I've heard it before, but it never hurts to hear it again. It's easy to lose yourself in living day-to-day and pursuing goal after goal.

So, in reading this book (vigorously recommended by a boss) my only real gripes are:

The author is talking down to his audience. (Most of them probably require it.)
The author uses parables all the time--as a would-be Jesus would--and sometimes has to really cram to get them all in.
Lots and lots of inspirational quotes that you've probably already been forwarded via email a zillion times.

If someone gives you this book, or if you find a copy for a few bucks, or if you are new to these ideas, this book is nearly as good as any I've encountered.

There isn't a person in the world who couldn't benefit from reading this book  Apr 4, 2006
If you're checking out this review, you're interested in becoming a better person, or as Kelly says, a better version of yourself. Kudos. This book will help you do it. It has brought a certain clarity to my inner monologue that I have never before felt.

And just so you know, I've read so many self-help books and books on seeking happiness I can't begin to list them here. (Relatively) Recently written books like "The 7 habits" and Dale Carnegie's "How to", all the way to Existentialist writers like Camus and enlightened thinkers such as Thoreau and ancient philosophers such as Aristotle and Plato. Whether or not you have, this book will put all the others into perspective. It will show you how those books, and this one, will help you on your journey of becoming the best version of yourself, and the byproduct (happiness) which comes from embracing this journey.

One last note...I subscribe to no particular faith, and I have avoided reading Kelly despite some of my friends recommendations because his books are always in the Christian section of the book store. I guarantee you that whether you are a born again Christian or an agnostic, this book can help you.

I don't know how else to put it: I give this book my strongest recommendation. You will do well to read it.
A change of Life  Mar 11, 2006
This book is helping me be a better me. I have learned to stop making excuses in life and that everything I do is a choice I have made. I have chosen to be a better me.
Covers finding your star, or, major purpose in life, and then, getting clear on taking the right path to get their.

Stays direct and focused. Not just fluffy words.

Uses history and statistics of Americans who flounder to make some powerful points in regards to whether you wish to be different.

Check it out.
