Our lives are filled to the max with stuff: iPhone® 4 (and we can’t wait for a 5G model), 60-inch LCD flat-screen televisions (though now we need the 3-D version), numerous sports lessons to which we drag our children (you know, because they’re going to be future NBA/NFL stars), seventy-hour workweeks, Facebook accounts, Twitter accounts, blogs. No matter what and how much we have, and no matter how many things we try to add into our day, it’s never enough. We have more than the previous generation could ever imagine, so why are our lives flooded with devastating amounts of stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness? And what can we do to change this constant, never-ending search for fulfillment?
In this breakthrough book, McClanahan argues that designing your extraordinary life doesn’t require a MBA and can’t be found with an iPhone app. He believes we already know exactly what to do. Unfortunately, we struggle to focus on what’s important because we are always searching for a quick fix to the challenge of the day.
