Overview
This is a book about life from the viewpoint of the author's experience. It was written as a source of ideas for his teenage grandchildren, but it should be useful for someone of any age. He presents these ideas through a hundred short essays. Among other things, the author recommends living an intentional life rather than one that is unstructured.
Description
The author started writing "The Best Ideas I've Ever Heard" the year his first three grandchildren were born a month apart. He was looking for a legacy he could leave that would be useful to them. What resulted is a book of ideas and observations about life that should be useful to anyone. He presents these ideas through a hundred short essays. More than anything, the author argues that life is limited in time and space, so we should approach life's journey thoughtfully, and live our lives intentionally. He recommends having goals, seeking moral guidelines and being kind to everyone we meet on this journey we call life.
About the author
The author is a father, grandfather and friend who has lived long enough to have some observations about life to share with his readers. During his life he has been a financial executive, a consultant and church member. He supports various charities which help the disadvantaged of whom he does not consider himself one. If you want to know more about him, the book is a great source of such information.
