Life is complicated and challenging. But most of us are given no guidance on how to approach it. A new book published today entitled Life… and How to Think About It, aims to address this by providing the ‘user manual for life that you’ve always wanted.’
Its author, Richard Docwra, is a writer, coach, and consultant helping people to stand back and examine the big picture – of life, human beings, politics, society, and ideas. He is also the founder of Life Squared – a not-for-profit organisation that provides guides, audiobooks, and other resources that have helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world to navigate the complexity of life so they can live in a happier, wiser, and more meaningful way.
Richard says: ‘Life is short and an incredible opportunity to be alive, but we tend to take it for granted. We generally rush through our lives without really thinking about how we can get the most out of them. Yet before you know it, life has flashed by and you regret not appreciating it more, or making the most of the things that really mattered to you. The book shows you how to make the most of it by living it in a thoughtful and well-informed way. It gives people a map to help them navigate life – whether they are 8 or 80 years old.’
The book explores 10 big questions, including ‘What does it mean to be alive?’, ‘How should I treat others?’, ‘How can I think well?’ and ‘How should I think about death?’.
The book is available from Amazon and other good booksellers. Visit Life Squared to access lots of free resources from Richard and the team.
