Overview

"Live with intention, walk to the edge, listen hard, practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is." --Mary Anne Radmacher

More than two decades ago, noted author, artist and teacher Mary Anne Radmacher, was beginning her chosen path--to live with purpose, to make a difference. She lost a dear friend and she wrote these words, which have appeared wrapped around mugs, on carry bags and journals, day planners, refrigerator magnets, and posters.

In her new book she expands these words to invite readers to explore what it might mean to live each day with intention--to figure out what counts for them, what will make their lives richer, allow them to make a difference, and bring verve to each and every day. Radmacher shares the ten qualities she considers essential to intentional living and offers readers exercises, inspirations, and promises to help them find what's important in their lives.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Writer and artist Radmacher (Promises to Myself) has expanded her "Live with Intention" catchphrase, a reaction to the death of a friend that went on to adorn walls, bags, and coffee mugs the world over, into a slim self-help guide. The big ideas here are platitudinous: slow down and smell the roses; take a deep breath; "choose love." Speaking of "the edge" that we might come to in life, Radmacher offers, "And if completion is a destination, there's one imperative that must be followed: just begin it." Ironically, though the author offers a number of clichéd suggestions for deeper living, their presentation (bullet points jumping wildly from one topic to another) makes the familiar almost incoherent. The author's prose is perfunctory and difficult to digest, and most of her advice has been offered countless times before in more accessible books. (Jan.)
