I’ve heard there are more books on self improvement than any other subject.
My friend Lisa claims that’s true…and she should know. She eats right, dresses well, and talks sweeter than a candy salesman at a dental convention.
She’s been to more seminars than most caterers. And she’s always looking for another body part to get fixed, tucked, or liposucked.
I wish I had that much ambition. But my goal is to live a “balanced life.” That means if I spend too much of a day thinking, I need to offset it with a nap.
Unfortunately, my employer doesn’t see it that same way. Maybe that’s because I both think — and nap — during work hours.
My neighbor Stan, who’s much like Lisa, belongs to a self-help support group. When he gets overconfident, he calls another member, who convinces him he needs more workshops.
“What worries me,” says Stan, “is that just about the time my mind starts to succeed, my body will start to fail.”
