Editor’s note: This book affirms my own experience with good and bad habits over time. The author’s great strength is in his step-by-step how-to approach. He makes life-changing practices seem possible by breaking change down into edible pieces since, let’s face it: habits are elephants that can only be consumed one bite at a time.
My son, Timmy, listened patiently to my complicated description of a tough decision then asked me three simple questions:
“You don’t trust me”.
It hit me like a brick to the side of my head.
But as I’ve grown older, I try hard to process input that I don’t like.
I had to ask myself immediately (before responding) if the judgment is their truth or mine. I asked myself, “is it true, do I really not trust them?” The answer was no, I trust this person very much.
