Overview

A Little Guide to a Big Life by David Young

I struggled to find the right adjective for life. Successful, rewarding, and happy are a few of the better ones that came to mind, but even these are inadequate. Life is just too big.

Big. That's the adjective I was looking for.

I discovered after I had been married several years that my life wasn't big, it was just busy.

"You used to smile whenever you saw me," my wife, Christina, reminded me. "That made me feel special. But you don't smile when you see me anymore, and I miss that."

My love for Christina had grown, and she still turned heads, especially mine, so I had lots of reasons to smile. But she was right. I didn't smile as often as I used to, because I was usually thinking about my to-do list. I appreciated her gentle reminder. I made a few changes and started smiling again. We're both happier now.

In this little guide I share what I've learned about life, in the form of gentle reminders. You probably already know how to live a big life. If so, you don't need a big book. But perhaps some reminders would help you too.

Gentle Reminder #1: Smile when you see your spouse.

About the Author

David Young was an advisor to Texas Governor Rick Perry for ten years. He developed the governor’s low-cost degree initiative, which challenged universities to offer degrees that cost $10,000. Today, thirteen universities in Texas offer one or more bachelor’s degrees for approximately $10,000. This initiative spread to other states, including Florida, where twenty-three institutions offer $10,000 degrees, and to California, which is developing similar low-cost programs at fifteen institutions.

David enjoys playing the violin and traveling. He’s traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, and he’s visited South America, Asia, and the Middle East. He; his wife, Christina; and their two dogs live in Round Rock, Texas.
