Great design comes not in the lightning strike of a brilliant idea but in the painstaking process of refinement. Part of the design process involves kerning, the meticulous adjustment of space between letterforms (type). And so it is in life that the achievement of excellence comes not in broad strokes but in deliberate and incremental change.
In Life Kerning, author Justin Ahrens applies this concept to both your life and career. There is a common misconception that positive change can only come from a complete system overhaul. Ahrens challenges this notion by inviting business leaders and professionals to not only reassess the goals of your life, but also to rethink your understanding of balance altogether.
Using insights and observations from both the creative and professional world, this book guides you in determining what you're passionate about, and then how to keep those passions in the forefront of your life and career. Discover strategies to apply to your life and career that will allow you to:
Reach out to others strategically and trust the collaboration process
Create space in your life and add enjoyment to your day-to-day existence
Develop critical decision-making skills
Establish an inspiring and motivating workplace environment
Learn how and when to ask for more
Embrace your curiosity, and become a catalyst for positive change
Live a life that fuels your work, and work in a way that fuels your life. Life Kerning shows you how, one miniscule step at a time.See all Editorial Reviews
