There are no TV-movie-style miracle treatments or extensions of his life expectancy; he's told he has maybe 3 months, and he doesn't spend any energy hoping for a cure. True to his CEO style, he creates goals for himself, lists of friends to visit for the last time; he meditates; he tries to create as many "perfect Moments" that he can, during dinner or phone conversations with friends, and realized how rare those moments of connection and joy were in his "previous life." Chasing Daylight is as much a self-criticism of his job-before-family ways as it is a meditation on time and a transition to a tranquil, spiritual state utterly foreign to him as a CEO. O'Kelly's absolutely more fulfilled by the soul work that he finishes in 100 days, compared to his 30 years of corporate promotions and accolades, and he utterly convinces readers to ponder their own situation, whether "in the gloaming" of life as he was or not. --Erica Jorgensen--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
It is one of the very few books that, upon reading it, I have gone out to purchase extra copies, to give to special friends.
Although the book really, REALLY made me wonder if I wanted to know how and when I was going to die, it made me think even more of how one should live.
I think this book shows us that it doesn't matter when you realize that your life is a journey and to enjoy living in the moment.
