"I define 'success' as having your life on your terms. And the single most valuable success lesson that I continue to learn, grow and literally profit from is SLOWING DOWN. In the instruction manual Monica includes in this masterpiece, she reminds us of the need to do precisely that--slow down enough to be present with what is, so that we can work creatively and masterfully with that. I just love the short, poignant stories and the collection of suggested listening and reading references are as impressive as it gets. Thank you, Monica Bhide, sincerely, for slowing down enough to make the time to create this collection, this creativity workbook. I will use it as a daily source of inspiration."
