"The precious present has nothing to do with wishing. The richness of the precious present comes from its own source. The precious present is not something that someone gives you. It is something that you give to yourself." The parable of The Precious Present is a quiet one to muse upon and sit with, and finally to take into your heart. Spencer Johnson, coauthor of the bestselling business classic The One Minute Manager, has created a simple path for the reader to follow in the search for peace and clarity. While The Precious Present may read like a children's book for adults, its slow pace requires the mind to quiet down so that it can really register the meaning of Johnson's words. "The Present Is Simply Who I Am Just The Way I Am... Right Now. And It Is Precious." We may be familiar with this philosophy in theory, but the experience of reading The Precious Present is truly synchronous with its message. --Jodie Buller
"The Precious Present puts life in its simplest form. We should all follow its message and live life in the wonderful state The Precious Present awards each of us. I read it to all of my teams before we take the floor for the first day of practice."
--Rick Pitino, author of Success is a Choice

No sentence is wasted in this story. Don't let the number of words in this book fool you; it is loaded with life lessons, and the single, most important one of them all - how precious the present really is.
Coming back to living in the present, instead of drifting into the future or past is something that I'm constantly striving for. This story helps me get there. It helps me get to a place of gratitude and love for life. Being conscious of everything going on around me allows me to be in control, and brings out the best in me and others.
I'm on my way to buying a hundred used copies of this book, and I don't plan on stopping when I get there. Spend the $4 including shipping to own a copy of this book, and buy an extra while you're at it for a friend!
There is sorrow and pain in each person's life: that is humanity. However, the loss of a loved one is filled with the joy of that person who is no longer in pain. Parting with significant others can be difficult, but we learn from that experience. The past and the future are not here, but The Precious Present is.
I won't say anything more other than to suggest that you take the time to get and read this book as it's a wonderful reminder of how to achieve a life well lived!
