Every day you make hundreds of decisions. Some of those decisions help you become the-best-version-of-yourself, and others don't. Life is a choice. Become a great decision maker and you will master the art of living. With each decision, simply ask: What will help me to become the-best-version-of-myself? Make this a constant part of your inner dialogue and you will become a fabulous decision maker--and live a life uncommon." ~ Matthew Kelly from The Rhythm of Life
The-best-version-of-yourself. That is what Matthew Kelly is committed to helping us become and that is what this book is all about--becoming the-best-version-of-ourselves as we align with the rhythms of life.
The result? Living every day with passion and purpose.
I heard about Matthew from Hal Elrod in his great book, The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM). Hal raved about Matthew and shared some extraordinary quotes so I picked up a couple of books. Very glad I did!
The book is packed with wisdom. My copy is, as you'd expect, all marked up. I'm excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas!
1. Everything Is a Choice - Every.single.thing.
2. What Would You Do - If you knew you could not fail?
3. I'd Give My Whole Life - To be able to do that.
4. A Better Question - What is the *most* I can do?
5. Feeling Like It - Has nothing to do with it.

I initially read it from the library, but I decided to buy a copy for myself so that I can reference back to it, and also lend it to my family and friends.
I really want to give it to my sister, who is now entering college and trying to figure out what to do with her life.
As for me, I am also trying to figure out how to live a more purpose driven life with work and family, and Mr. Kelly’s book couldn’t have come a better time.
Mr. Kelly’s writing style is so easy to read that it almost feels conversational.
It is a quick, easy, entertaining and inspiring read.
I love the stories / analogies he uses to present his points.
I used to know Mr. Kelly as mostly a Catholic self-help author, but this book really is a general self-help book for people of any denomination / spiritual or non-spiritual outlook, trying to lead a more purpose-driven life or simply figuring out what to do in life.
I really loved this book because it went into more detail on some of the same general points concerning work that interested me from his Catholic books (Dynamic Catholic, Rediscover Catholicism).
Finally, his steps towards a “best-version-of-yourself” really are simple and common sense, which is why one can immediately start to apply it to their lives.
Though it does not touch on the facts of certain things such as sentience beyond humans like an animals life. Surprised the amount of compassion in this doesn't extend into veganism.
