Life is short. You can, if you work hard and are lucky, get more of almost anything, but you can’t get more time. Time only goes one way. The average American has a lifespan of less than 30,000 days. So how you choose to live matters.
Author Peter Atkins doesn't pretend to have all the answers. But he does share what’s worked for him to create a life he loves, and he hopes these ideas are useful to you as well. Emphasizing love and respect for the people we spend our time with and being passionate about life outside work, Atkins outlines how to create a balance between work and other interests, including family, friends and exercise.
