Every now and then I need a little help. I struggle with periods of low energy and motivation for my work, I lose discipline when it comes to healthy living, and I’ll be an inattentive husband or father. If you’ve ever suffered from any of these, there’s help in Brad Rex’s book The Surpassing Life. The Surpassing Life contains 52 short anecdotes combined with lessons and actions steps to help you achieve more in life. Why 52? Because that’s one for every week of the year! The book is organized into the following major sections with between 5 and 19 lessons in each: Money Health Honor Relationship Knowledge Leadership Success I have to confess that Brad and I were classmates at the Naval Academy so I was probably predisposed to like many of his suggestions such as – figure out how to get the exercise you need without going to the gym (more efficient, better for the environment, more likely you’ll do it, etc). the importance of reputation (easily cracked, hard to mend, etc.) the power of commitment (maybe because it’s a Rickover story?) the value of reading (yes, I need to read more too…) The book is a slight volume. It’s not demanding or heavy. I’ve got the book on my night stand and plan on perusing it over the next year, bouncing among the sections. I am guessing that you’d benefit from the same.
