Overview

In this modern-day parable, author Barbara Burke introduces 22 unforgettable life lessons-Aha!s-that are the framework for living a happy, struggle-free life. We learn that while we have almost no control over much of what happens to us in life, we do have control over our reactions. The secret to success is being able to stop long enough to see situations clearly-to see "what is." Making this one small change gives us the power to make better decisions and get better outcomes, and enables us to handle even the most challenging interactions with customers, co-workers, friends, and family with grace and ease.

Some of these Aha!s include:

Problems can be gifts in disguise.

The nicer I am to myself, the nicer I am to others.

A simple apology works wonders.

Winners don't just point out problems. They fix them.

Real freedom comes from letting go of the outcome.

The Napkin, the Melon & the Monkey serves as both a powerful resource for business professionals looking for easy-to-use tools to sharpen their "inner game" and as an inspirational tale for those who want better relationships and a happier life.
