As a former coworker of author David Marshall, I had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of My Life Map nearly one year ago. At the time, I was working in publishing, but had the sneaking suspicion that I was looking for something else. But I didn't know what that 'something else' was and, more so, I had no idea how to find it. When David gave me a copy of My Life Map, I was expecting a pleasant read and he was expecting some valuable feedback. Well...neither one of us got quite what we expected. I don't usually go in for self-help books and I've never really done any journaling, so I was amazed and surprised by the way this book drew me in. The straight-forward and helpful introductory information, the fill-in format, and the illustrative examples all came together and persuaded me, almost against my will, to do some life-mapping of my own. This book helped me make sense of the thoughts, desires, and dissatisfaction that were confusingly swirling around in my brain, bringing to light wants and visions that I hadn't been able see alone. It wasn't until My Life Map provided me with both the guidance and the space to find and express what I did NOT want from life that I felt confident enough to take the next step and figure out what I DID want. While David did gain some valuable feedback (and a big fan of his work), he lost a coworker. By reading and filling out the worksheets in My Life Map, I was inspired to follow my true passion -- for organic, artisan cheese. I'm now 4 months into an amazing new journey, working as a local cheesemonger and writing and editing around food, and I have My Life Map and David & Kate Marshall to thank for inspiring and encouraging me.

The members of my immediate family received this book as a Christmas present, and New Year's Eve seemed like the perfect time to see what My Life Map had to offer. I read the book from start to finish this afternoon and can't wait to get started on MY life map.

While I am a committed life-long learner, I've mostly stored long-terms goals and plans in my head, making them fuzzy and easy to forget. Without an illuminated path, I am prone to distraction and procrastination. This lovely little book is a wonderful tool for helping anyone be more mindful about what they would like to make of their life, whether they are just starting out, in middle-age, considering what to do after a family is raised, or pondering retirement.

The book's beauty lies in its thorough simplicity. It offers ways to help you remember and assess your past, get a clear picture of the present, and visualize how you'd like your life to turn out right up to the very end. I particularly like its holistic approach. This is not just about career, it is about all the things that make life rich -- family, friends, learning, hobbies and service. Don't worry about getting bogged down in trying to remember or create a lot of detailed spread sheets and To Do lists -- that is not the point. It is about imagining the life you want in a way that helps you make mindful decisions about the future.

Those who buy the print book can access and download electronic tools. I love this feature, because I find it easier to get and stay organized when I can easily access information on my computer.

The authors, whose tone throughout is friendly and helpful, serve up ways for determining which planning route might work best for the kind of thinker you are.

Have you ever heard of a life map? I had no idea what a life map was until I read this book. According to the authors of this book, Kate and David Marshall, the purpose of life mapping is to help you live a more meaningful and fulfilled life. No matter what your age or where you are in your life, you probably have had certain dreams, goals and aspirations. Putting them in writing or mapping them out can help you visualize them. It is their claim that life mapping with intention and purpose can also increase the chances that you will achieve your future goals.

The book gives examples of Whole Life Maps for people in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 60s. These go to show that you can literally start a life map no matter how old you are or where you are on your life journey. Reading through these examples will definitely help you craft your own life map. As I was doing mine, I kept looking back through the examples for ideas and guidance.

Aside from the Whole Life Map, there are several other life maps within this book. There are 10-year subject maps for Family, Friends, Learning, Work, Service, and Playing. The Whole Life Map goes from your birth all the way to your death. I completed all of the maps, but you don't have to. The Marshalls recommend starting with whatever map you think would be most beneficial to you. Different people prefer different maps. I did them all just to see what it was like and so I could give you a thorough review of the book. I found the Whole Life Map to be more difficult to complete than the 10-year Map. It was easier to visualize where you want to be in 10 years rather than it is to visualize where you will be in say 50 years.
