RISE Up Book Club - "Off Balance" by Matthew Kelly

RISE Up Book Club - "Off Balance" by Matthew Kelly

One of the major issues in our lives today is work-life balance. Everyone wants it; no one has it. But Matthew Kelly believes that work- life balance was a mistake from the start. Because we don't really want balance. We want satisfaction.

Kelly lays out the system he uses with his clients, his team, and himself to find deep, long-term satisfaction both personally and professionally. He introduces us to the three philosophies of our age that are dragging us down. He shows us how to cultivate the energy that will give us enough battery power for everything we need and want to do. And finally, in five clear steps, he shows us how to use his Personal & Professional Satisfaction System to establish and honor our biggest priorities, even if we spend a lot more time on some of the lesser ones.

Women + Wealth

A growing economic force, women account for almost half of U.S. wealth creators. Women have a longer time horizon, they participate more in their companies’ retirement plans and they invest slightly more of their income, than men. But women know that there is more to life than money — and that true wealth springs from a good quality of life, and from the values and people we cherish most deeply. Complementing this understanding, more and more women are taking control of their own destinies and starting their own businesses. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a physician, a lawyer, or a corporate employee, join us for engaging and rich conversation about women and wealth.

Wellth
 noun | \welth\ A new and more valuable life currency
: a life exemplified by abundance, happiness, purpose, health, and joy.
 
MindBodyGreen founder Jason Wachob, in his first book, redefines successful living and offers readers instead a new life currency to build on, one that is steeped in physical and emotional health and wellbeing. In this prescriptive memoir, he shows us all how to build a life, not a resumé, and why it’s important to make frequent deposits into our own ‘wellth’ accounts.
