"I love this book! Although I've reviewed books before, this is the first one I really enjoyed reviewing, and found myself expanding in process...its message is consistently positive and uplifting, its advice is timely and timeless, and its prescriptions for personal growth are, best of all, simple and doable. This is kitchen table wisdom at its best." ~John C. Robinson, Ph.D, author of Death of a Hero

What are you thinking?
Do you ever find yourself in the middle of a project, not thinking about the project at all, but about what you're going to be doing for dinner, or the movie you're going to watch with your friend that evening?

If you're doing that, then you're not in the NOW. You are nowhere to be seen since the NOW is the only space in which you can operate.
If you find yourself in that situation, and most of us do at one point or another, practice mindfulness and see if you can't reel yourself back to the present moment.
