Choose Your Own Adulthood

It is our choices…that show us who we really are,
far more than our abilities.
(J.K. Rowling)

The greatest adventure in life is the transition into adulthood. Nothing compares to the newfound freedoms, possibilities, and responsibilities that come with life on your own. As my daughter began that journey several years ago, I was smartly advised by some friends to start writing occasional letters to her as her high school life was ending, and her college life approaching.

Well, I took this WAY too seriously, and what started as some letters is now our newest book: Choose Your Own Adulthood: A Small Book about the Small Choices that Make the Biggest Difference.

The book is made up of 16 different choices that define what our adult lives will be. These are not the clearcut right vs. wrong choices we all know about, but rather the do more of this, do less of that variety. Respond More, React Less, for instance. Or Create More, Critique Less. Another fun one is Choose More of What You Want Most, and Less of What You Want Right Now.

These choices are the exact lessons I wanted my daughter to take with her as she began to launch, and I could not be more excited to launch these lessons to you guys, our Daily Pausers, and to the rest of the world.

The book is already available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-a-Million. You can order now, and you’ll receive the book right around March 29. Until then, we’ll be devoting our Daily Pauses to some of the choices in the book, along with some giveaways, some challenges, and even a scholarship opportunity.

Peace begins with pause,
