If you want to live a happier and meaningful life, the book is a good guide. For me, finding the purpose of living is not easy for me. Like the author mentioned, people try to avoid thinking these things because there's no deadlines. While personal mission statement is far more important than a project of your job, which, in my point view, is a timeless and long lasting motivation
the book is about how to make a good meaningful mission statement to guide your life,it'S about find yourself and know how you are and where you go and what'S the most important thing in your life,it seems a verY simple activity but will gave your life a tremendous change or improvement, from you have a very meaningful misson statement it like a compass to give you a timeless direction,you will not missing in your life ocean,you will living but not lived!
虽然我只看了1/3，但并不妨碍我给它一个较高的分数。其行文较为流畅，废话也不多，以至于我看着看着发现，已经1/3了。 这个三分之一我做了一点点书摘，可能其实就是各种现在微信平台上的“鸡汤”（或者是鼓励人好好生活下去的言论）。 摘抄如下，各位自行品味： The essence of these needs is captured in this phrase “to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy.” To live encompasses our physical and economic needs and well-being. To love deals with our relationships with others and how we relate together and deal with each other—kindness, respect, dignity, support, and so forth. To learn involves helping each other continually with education, learning from our experiences and identifying, developing, and using our talents. To leave a legacy is our spiritual need for a sense of meaning, for a sense of mattering in life, that we truly contribute, add value, make a difference, and have a deep connection with the eternal and divine part of our nature.
