I Did It to Myself: True Confessions of an Overachiever by Edgar L. Vann This book is the product of a “life to death” and “back to life” experience that changed my perspective on the nature of work, career commitment, personal goals, and ultimately, the meaning of success. Health challenge recovery compelled me to evaluate life forever from a fresh perspective. Many books are written to convince us to do more. We are often told to be successful we must be incessantly engaged — squeezing in other essentials, if we can. We have been coerced to the frenetic, hyperactive lifestyle. We are pressured to take on more than we can, accelerate everything, and maximize all we do to the hilt. We feel we must be all things to all people, never realizing “NO” to be a complete sentence. I know what it means to take on the world at once. Blessed with many gifts, talents and skills, I thought I was able to do it all. The beauty of life is really a matter of integrating all of its salient components into a well-coordinated fabric. The proper fusion of life amalgamation enhances it value and makes life captivating and attractive. Creating synergies in the tapestry of life is the equipoise of life fulfillment. I was “made to lie down” and compelled to live my life differently. I share here the life changing truths that I’ve learned and continue to learn. I am most eager to reach those who thrive on busyness and big goals as I have. Integrating life and work equitably is the message. I want to teach people who anxiously crave success a more excellent way to thrive and stay alive. Read an excerpt today: http://www.edgarlvann.com/excerpt/
