I have been successful by driving very hard towards my goals. I have often stressed other people and myself.
I want to explore whether there are ways to be just as successful, with less stress on myself and others.
I am so action-oriented that I rarely sit down to read a book. I read less than one book per year.
This book was great. I have read it twice!
