Many in a time we get asked or ask ourselves what are our life goals what do we want to be remembered for before we say goodbye to this world How do we live a life of purpose and fulfillment This book offers a way to deeply think about these uestions and perhaps chart some possible answers and directions that we need to take to achieve themOne interesting issue that Clay talks about revolves around parenting As parents we would want our children to be euipped with the knowledge and skills to succeed in their lives Hence most parents try to expose their children to as many opportunities as possible such as learning a musical instrument sport tuition classes etc in hope that they will be in a advantageous position to succeed in life than their peers I used to hold the same viewpoint tooClay contends however that these are merely Resources The problem comes when exposing children to an endless array of activities is when they are not truly engaged and when these activities don t challenge them to do hard things and learn the correct values and responsibilities out of it What children need to learn are Processes ie the skills needed to learn a skill the knowledge needed to acuire new knowledge the experience to learn from experiences This got me to understand that rather than by giving children Resources it is important for them to learn about Processes These often cannot be taught by outsourcing what we need to teach our children to the activities themselves But rather we need to be a role model for our children and make the correct decisions so as to impart the correct values when we interact with them on a daily basis With the right Processes and Priorities they will then be able to learn better from the Resources they have and this if anything will make them better individualsFREE READ How Will You Measure Your Life?
